The Sonshine Clubs is a high-energy, fun, attention-grabbing, life-impacting ministry that seeks to engage elementary school-age children by interacting with them in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Many of these children have had very little or no exposure to the love and message of Jesus Christ. So, it is our mission to bring Jesus to them — right where they are!
For one hour after school, our volunteers bring the message of Jesus Christ through prayer, activities, Bible stories and verses. Programs begin with a short prayer, then a high-energy game or activity. Teachings from the Bible are included as well as a chance to earn special treats and prizes
Developed in 1993, The Sonshine Clubs began as a Saturday morning outdoor children’s ministry in Lincoln Park Circle. Today, God’s grace has grown this ministry to 13 clubs and 39 volunteers. Thanks to a wonderful partnership with the Springfield City Schools, Emmanuel Christian Academy, and New Carlisle Elementary School, the Sonshine Clubs are in 13 schools and are serving 850 children in grades kindergarten to 6th grade.
Each Sonshine Club is run by a group of volunteers. Ideally, we would like to have six volunteers at each club to assist with the number of students attending. Currently, 39 awesome, amazingly wonderful volunteers commit to giving their time each week to make the Sonshine Clubs possible. We are in need of more volunteers to continue expanding this program. Please consider volunteering for this important ministry.
