Christ's Kids

Christ’s Kids is a service oriented youth group for children 1st through 4th grades. It meets two Wednesdays per month from 3:45 until 5:00 pm during the school year. Transportation is provided from the ReCharge program at the Greene County Community Center to the church. Each month we focus on making a craft item that can be given away as a gift. We then deliver what we have made to the Greene County Medical Center Long Term Care Residents. We enjoy meeting and visiting with the residents and have made many wonderful friends.

Other projects that Christ’s Kids are involved in: 

  • Planting a garden in memory of Christ’s Kids founder Jan Simpson and helper Verna Sigler
  • Alex’s Lemonade Stand:  
    • Alex's Lemonade Stand
    • Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). At the age of 4, Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of volunteers across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $40 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 150 research projects nationally.
    We share the vision of our founder and creator, Alexandra “Alex” Scott – a cure for all children with cancer.
