Biblical Counseling in Winter Break Childcare

Dr. Steve Viars February 28, 2023

Pastor Josh Aucoin joins us to discuss Winter Break @ Faith, a holiday childcare ministry. Josh explains how Winter Break Ministry strives to provide a safe, well-supervised, and fun-filled time for K-5thgraders while their parents are at work. The holidays can be a challenging time for families when school is on break, but the parents still need to work and don’t have or can’t afford other childcare options. This ministry provides a very low-cost option for families and ample opportunity for volunteers to share the love of Jesus with kids in the community. For many of these kids, this is the first time they’re being exposed to the gospel and biblical principles.
