June 2024

Cooper's Cars


Our newsletter for June is full of kids supporting our ministry. Kiddos are always watching us. Especially, when the kiddos see how they can get involved in our ministry of giving to others. Let me introduce you to one such little man with a servant’s heart. Cooper Barr is four years old. He is one of several little guys that go to the Sanctuary.  He has been around our ministry, by helping at the Knick Knack Patty Wack hearing about Servant’s Heart at church his whole life.


Cooper loves to play with and collect Hot Wheels. Now remember he is only 4 years old. When he and his dad where shopping for his newest Hot Wheel, Cooper told his dad that when he bought a new car, he would also buy a new car for Servant’s Heart. So, he did just that. Couple of Sundays ago, Cooper brought me a Kroger sack. It was full of Hot Wheel cars. Six brand new ones and four cars from his own collection. Cooper’s cars were well loved by the wear and tear on them. He gave from what he had so other kids could enjoy them like he did. It just warms my heart when little ones give to us to help our kids. When we will see that their sacrifice of treasured cars will be very special gift to one of our kids.


I recall a story in the Bible, when another little boy brought his lunch to Jesus. It had five loaves and two fish. We know what happened to that gift. Jesus blessed it and fed five thousand plus.


Remember you never know who is watching you. Is your walk talk louder than you talk, talk. I understand that Cooper is already gathering his next bag of cars.

Ellery a Young Lady with a Servant's Heart

This is Ellery, one of our young ones with a servant’s heart, who already understands the joy of giving.  For her ‘double digit’ 10th birthday this spring, she wanted to do something EXTRA SPECIAL.


Ellery decided to have a birthday party with LOTS of friends, a special activity, and LOTS of gifts.  She had one stipulation for her friends, though. She didn’t want the usual gifts that 10-year-old girls enjoy. Rather, she had specific gifts in mind!  These included disposable baking pans, cake mixes, cans of icing, cans of Sprite, candles, and mixing gadgets.  Happy to oblige her wish list, her friends brought their gifts to join her on her birthday.  The special activity that Ellery planned was for all the party guests to have the joy of making ‘birthday boxes’ that she intended to donate to others.  Altogether, with their generosity and hard work, Ellery and her friends made over 100 boxes—each complete with typed instructions on how to make a cake using Sprite as a substitute for oil.

With so many boxes made, Ellery then decided she would share these gifts with two different pantries. Inspired by both a previous day when her entire family volunteered at Servant’s Heart, as well as her older brother, Keaton, a Roncalli student volunteer for us, she chose Servant’s Heart to receive this gift.  Not only did the whole family deliver and unload this massive gift, they even helped us stock them on our shelves.  What a wonderful experience it was for all of us!  And--as she was leaving, Ellery excitedly announced, “I already have an idea for what we can make and donate for my birthday next year!” We are so touched and grateful for Ellery and her wonderful family.

Reflections from Sue


LUKE 3:10-11


 “‘What should we do then?’ the crowd asked. John answered, ‘Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.’”


As believers, we need to remember that everything God blesses us with is also meant to bless others. It’s important not to hoard and store up things for ourselves when we know that others are in need. This verse itself gives all the practical tips we need: if you have two shirts, share one; and if you have food, share with one who does not.
