Hey friends. As we approach the new year, we want to present you with an opportunity to partner with KIDS Inc. in 2017. One of our most important areas is our elementary outreach. These programs, including our after-school program, tutoring program, and school partnerships, have grown and flourished in the past year, and we are so grateful. To keep this momentum going… Read more →
As Christians, sometimes God calls us to be part of revivals. Other times God calls us to just keep showing up – even when we can’t see results. He calls us to faithfully teach and live truth. Our faithfulness must not be dependent on fruit, but rather based on God’s worthiness. He doesn’t promise quick results, but He does promise… Read more →

Now that we’re home from camp, we wanted to update you on how it went. Here’s a snapshot of why we love our week with students at Camp Allendale! Camp was full of fun.

Camp Allendale 2015 Summertime at KIDS Inc. means taking groups of our students, some of whom have never spent more than a day or two outside their own neighborhood, away to camp for a week.

God has been making Himself known through our ministry in the recent months! Because it has been quite some time since our last K.I.D.S. Inc update, we would like to give our supporters a picture of the state of our programs and share a vision for what we think God has set before us.
Hang Time is our weekly Friday gathering where middle school and high school students come to hang out. We provide students a safe place to hang out where they can play basketball, skateboard, play pool, eat a hot meal, and hear a Bible message. We have seen a consistent turnout of around sixty kids every Friday night, which is our biggest program each week. We provide stable adult relationships for these students and give them a place in which they strengthen their friendships with one another.
Elementary Club meets each Thursday after school. We play games, makes crafts, and teach a Bible lesson each week. We have seen this program grow from two kids three months ago to as many as twelve kids as we’ve partnered with the school across the street from us. This program is vitally important for the neighborhood and students because it forms the basis of long-term relationships between our students and K.I.D.S. Inc and through this relationship we may see more lives changed for and through Jesus.
Highlights from 2014 Our volunteers – This year we have truly been blessed by over 20 faithful volunteers! Volunteers have helped us with summer camps, Mudathlons and the Indianapolis Marathon, serving food at Hang Time, running Elementary Time, planning and preparing for events, and building personally into the lives of students. We are so thankful for you all! Summer camps… Read more →
