Casino Road Kids Ministries:
I’ve been blessed by my interactions with the elementary age children and the volunteers at the Casino Road Ministry (a homework time and Bible club located at Horizon Elementary School). Kathy and I along with Tasha, Ava and Adam have intentionally spent quality time each week with the 20-35 wonderful kids that live in the Casino Road area of Everett and attend the ongoing homework and bible clubs. We help the kids with homework, and bring in some fruit for the kid’s dinner time. Between homework and Bible club there’s a free time as kids move from one club to another. This is where relationships form. I bring my ukulele, harmonica and other instruments and “jam” with various kids during their free time. I’ve also been asked to teach and Bible lesson to the kids in November.
Most of the kids are low income and/or part of the foster system. They are wonderful children who really appreciate the interactions they have with the volunteers. The other day, a couple of the kids ran up to Kathy before she left and pleaded for her to stay, “Please don’t leave!” the young girl asked.
If you want to get involved with this ministry talk to Kathy or myself. We’ll point you in the right direction. You can always pray for Tyrone (the ministry founder and leader), the present kids, future kids, and volunteers.
