Red Lasers and Open Doors
Last Christmas, a short video about the founder and the work of “Open Doors” was shown during our Sunday service. I was so impacted by it that I decided it might be something my Children’s Church group (RED LASERS) would like to support.
My first Red Lasers group in the New Year was planned around prayer stations and information about Open Doors. I played the same video (see below) and asked the children if they would like to raise money for Open Doors. They were full of enthusiasm and ideas as to how they could do it.
They did a Fun Run in June and the children raised over £600 in sponsorships – Amazing!
They then had a cake sale in July at the end of our morning service, this raised a further £120 so with Gift Aid they were able to send just over £1000 to Open Doors.
