Children’s Ministry Attention! Attention!
Come one! Come all for a fun mission opportunity just for you!!!


Just because we can’t all be together like we are used to, and just because church and missions need to look a little different doesn’t mean we can’t make a positive impact on the world around us. We have been given the amazing opportunity to pack and ship Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to children in need all over the world. This year, instead of a church wide packing party we will instead offer you the chance to

Adopt a Shoebox.


You will have the chance to pick up a box from church, fill the box with your own purchased treasures (a suggested list will be given with each box), include the $9 shipping cost for the box (if you are able), and return the box to church. More information regarding this great mission opportunity will be available soon. In the meantime, if you are out shopping and see some great sales, here are some items that we would love to put into the boxes: pens, pencils, markers, crayons, small notebooks, notecards, combs, brushes, toothbrushes, bars of soap, pairs of socks, washcloths or small towels, small toys, small play balls, decks of cards, jump ropes etc.


Stay tuned for more details in next month’s newsletter. Any questions contact:

Write a note or draw a picture for community workers!

We have mailed out 70 thank you packages to community workers.  Those packages each contain thank you cards handcrafted by the Faith Kids and their families.  Cards have been sent to police and firefighters, nurses and doctors, grocery store employees, mail carriers and teachers as well as members of our congregation who are shopping and delivering groceries for others.  We would like to continue mailing cards to essential workers.  Do you have someone in mind who would like to receive a card of encouragement and thanks?  If so, please email Kim Clifton at with the recipient’s name and address and she will gladly send them a thank you package.  In addition we are still accepting thank you cards, you may send your homemade cards to the church and we will make sure they are mailed to essential community helpers.

2020 VBS Cancelled
Faith Kids at
Faith United Methodist Church
of Orland Park

After much consideration and many, many prayers we have decided to cancel Vacation Bible School for 2020. We feel it is the most responsible decision given the current situation. While we will miss seeing all of our VBS friends this summer, most importantly we want you all to be safe and healthy.

Do not worry VBS will return in summer 2021 and it will be the most AMAZING AND AWESOME VBS we’ve ever had.

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Keep the Faith.
