WELS YOUTH RALLY ACTIVITY

WELS Christian Aid and Relief (CAR) will be modeling the community care & compassion grant program and giving the youth the opportunity to have an exciting hands-on volunteer experience while at the rally. The kids will have the opportunity to work on three packages for people in the community who may not have a church home.

  1. Kids in need
  2. 1st responders
  3. Homebound individuals

All the supplies needed to make these packages will be provided. All the kids need to bring with them are hearts and hands for service.

Youth Leader Information

Youth group leaders signing up on Sign Up Genius for a specific 30 or 45 minute time slot will be guaranteed one package per group to take home to give to a person in need in their community. In addition, the first 1,000 kids to participate will receive a cool t-shirt for helping. In addition, youth leaders will receive detailed information on the Christian Aid and Relief community care & compassion matching grant program and the nuts and bolts on the set up of this year’s Youth Rally program. This Christian Aid and Relief volunteer opportunity will be held on the second floor in the Aquatic Center. Looking forward to meeting you in Knoxville!
