Saturday School takes place on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month
Our volunteers help to meet a physical need by feeding St. Louis children a warm, nourishing breakfast. We also seek to meet their spiritual needs through Bible lessons that are applicable to their everyday lives. To keep children coming back week after week, we make learning about Jesus fun through a variety of games and activities.
A Typical Day at Saturday School
A typical day at Saturday School kicks off at 8:30 am. Volunteers meet at Transformation’s school building at 5890 Etzel Ave. to open the day by praying for the children who will soon be gracing our doors. The volunteers then get busy preparing for the children to arrive. That’s when the fun really begins.
Once the children arrive, we create a fun, inviting atmosphere with open gym playtime, as well as staff-led games and activities. This is followed by a Bible lesson where we are able to share the word of God in an unassuming, relevant way. The morning ends with a hot, nutritious breakfast. Neighborhood children leave not just physically fed, but also spiritually fed.
Matthew 19:14 (NIV), “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
- Back-to-School Bash, where we help prepare the children to succeed in school by providing them with the necessary school supplies
- Christmas Party, where we not only share the Good News of Jesus’ birth but we also share Christmas gifts with the children who participate in the Saturday School Outreach.
There’s No Better Way to Spend a Saturday Morning
Sounds crazy, right? We know it’s tempting to spend Saturday morning sleeping in and watching cartoons. But trust us: there’s no better way to spend a Saturday morning than by volunteering with TCCWOC’s Saturday School for Neighborhood Children.
Teens and adults who volunteer with Saturday School are seeing firsthand, God’s transforming power at work in the community as we provide physical and spiritual nourishment to our young neighbors.
