Candy Cane Kids Ministry

The Mission

The mission is simple: to heal the broken with the help of Jesus Christ. Candy Cane Kids Ministry was founded in 2010 and in its first year of running we ended up having enough money to buy 200 children's Christmas gifts that were all wrapped and delivered to the Catawba County Department of Social Services; all of which were delivered to foster children who would have otherwise not had a Christmas. In the year 2011, we delivered personalized gifts as well as a meal to children and families just coming out of abused situations at The Kwanzaa Family Inn as well as abandoned kids as Baptist Children's Home. All that has and will happen was and is possible because of donations from people across the country - 100% of donations went and still go towards this ministry. What sets this organization apart from the rest is that while we strive to give kids a wonderful present to open on Christmas morning, our main priority is ministering to their souls. Along with each Christmas present given was also a Christmas card laying out the plan of salvation so a child might come to know Christ as their Savior. These cards will continue to accompany Christmas presents every year from here on out, no matter how much of an uprising it may get. People may not understand the reason for this, but it's so important because whatever the children are going through when they receive our gifts, they need to know that they can always find rest in the Savior's arms. God's word describes believers as one body - how when one member hurts, we all hurt. He expects us to care for the widowed, poor, orphaned, and sickly. It is our job to be salt and light to this world. We are encouraged to act on these words: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in Heaven."(Matt 5:16). If there was ever a time for the body of Christ to come together to proclaim the name of God, that time is now.
