On behalf of those we serve, THANK YOU for participating in Methodist Home for Children’s 1K for 1Kid initiative! 

1K for 1Kid instructions

  • Decide on your goal — If less than “1 K,” simply mark on each poster the level you want your church members to reach. (For instance, each unit of a 2-point charge can raise $500, but together you are caring for one child for one year!)
  • Pick your campaign ending date and mark that prominently on each poster
  • Place your posters at strategic places around the church
  • Enlist the support of your UMM, Sunday school, youth, seniors and other groups in the church – dividing your goal into pieces makes the campaign work easier!
  • Copy the bulletin insert for distribution with Sunday programs; copies for coloring can also be used at age-appropriate children’s Sunday school classes
  • Share news of the “1 K” campaign at “mission moments” during service and at Sunday school classes and other meetings
  • Invite members to watch the enclosed DVD to help them learn more about MHC and its ministry to children, youth and families
  • As funds are collected, mark progress on the thermometer on each poster!

Tips to help raise “1K”

  • 1K Walk and VBS Mission Focus
  • “Pennies for Jesus” collection

  • Fish fry or spaghetti dinner
  • Ham biscuit breakfast
