Theme: Summer Service Projects

Summer time offers great opportunities to be creative and design service projects for the kids and adults of the family to enjoy together. Lead your children to do something for someone else.


  • Organize a food drive in your neighborhood.
  • Have a garage sale or lemonade stand for your favorite cause.
  • Plan an afternoon of fun: crafts, a movie and popcorn afternoon, or a kickball tournament at a children’s home or refugee center. Plan a day of fun!
  • Collect DVD’s and videogames you no longer use/watch and donate them to a Children’s Hospital for patients, or to KidFlicks, an organization that set up movie libraries in the children’s wards of hospitals.
  • Read stories to or share your talent with younger children. Be a positive role model that kids can look up to!
  • Hold a “dog wash” to raise money for a local animal shelter.
  • Go through the books you’ve grown out of and donate them to the waiting room of a local dentist or doctor.

    Ephesians 2:10

    For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
