Royal Family Kids

Royal_Family_Kids_940x440Annually, 3.6 million cases of child abuse, neglect or abandonment are reported in America. Many of these children go into the foster care system. The following statistics will break your heart:

  • Children in the U.S. foster care system: 408,425
  • Girls in foster care pregnant by 19: 50%
  • Prison inmates who were once in the foster care system: 74%
  • Young adults incarcerated within 2 years of “aging out” of foster care: 50%
  • Death row inmates who were former foster care children: 80%

Royal Family Kids, founded in 1984, is rescuing many of these children. Over one hundred thousand foster children have attended one of these camps since 1985. The vision is to give foster children, ages 6-12, a life-changing experience at a week-long camp. Right now there are about 63 foster children in Macoupin county. We have an opportunity to serve these foster children with the love and hope of Jesus Christ!

Jaime Armentrout, Melissa Stuemke, and Denise Joiner are trained to lead a camp for foster children of our area. They need you to partner with them in prayer. Please pray that these children will learn to love and trust God! These leaders are building a team and getting donations from businesses and individuals. They need to raise about $20,000 for this camp. The goal is to have 20 campers and several volunteers. The children attend camp for free! Please see the volunteer signup form below.

Will you please give a one-time gift of $25, $50, $100 or more so that 20 foster children can be loved and healed in Christ’s name?

Thank you!

Our Sunday 10:00 am meetings typically open with both contemporary and traditional songs. When the people of God gather in worship, God is active. Together we passionately exalt and glorify God with singing, music, prayer, the reading of God’s Word, creative arts, and communion. Then in this atmosphere of united worship, the Holy Spirit communicates the manifest presence of God. The Holy Spirit also uses us in the orderly exercise of spiritual gifts. Our church is one big family that is multi-cultural and multi-generational. Each generation and every stage of life belongs and is valued. Because life-change happens best in the context of authentic friendships, all are welcomed and loved at our church family. Sunday meetings also include Biblical and practical messages that are encouraging, challenging and hope-filled.
