Why We Are Here

 

Who we want to reach
Children age 0-4years that are in families with a strong need. We will focus on the children and meeting their needs, regardless of the parent's morals, values, or priorities. We will not judge a family who says they are need, but we will embrace grace. We hope that our love will draw the parents to know more about Christ, but our goal is the child and helping them first, no matter what the parent's response is to our gifts.

Mission Statement
To glorify God by reaching children in desperate times with the gospel of grace in action, showing them that Christ's provision is unconditional, and our love is nonjudgmental.

Vision Statement
It is our vision to provide good quality, gently used or new clothes and baby essentials to children within our Northern Colorado communities. We hope to impact the children in our community that are desperate for help during the next five years, by working from our homes. However, our long-term vision is to see this ministry grow into something that will be recognizable to the people in our community. Ideally, we would like to have a building in Loveland, and would be available more hours and provide for a larger population of children in need. We also see this ministry as an outreach ministry for Grace Place. Our vision is that pouring out God's grace on those in need, without judgment, will draw them to Him and to our church.

Core Values
We believe that the gospel of salvation through the finished work of Christ is the central message of the Bible and the true source for all Christian security, identity, unity, community, ministry, maturity, and outreach. We believe that Christ displayed a perfect example for how we should view outreach and strive to be Christ-like in all we do. We also believe that it breaks God's heart to see children suffering, but we know that God will defend the afflicted among the people and save the children of the needy (Psalms 72:4.) We believe that God invites us to be co-laborers with him, which means we must remain humbly dependent through prayer, while at the same time working diligently, making plans, accomplishing goals, and striving to give our best for his kingdom. A commitment to excellence, coupled with a spirit of humility, will characterize all our endeavors.

What to donate?

CLOTHES We are looking to provide quality new or gently worn clothing for children whose families are struggling.
While all quality clothing is in demand, the clothes that seem to be in the highest need are matching outfits, jeans, jean shorts, socks and NEW, in package, undergarments. If you have any of these items or know someone who does, we would love to provide a place for you to donate them.

BABY GEAR We are looking to provide quality baby gear for families in need. This includes car seats, cribs, mattresses, pack-n-plays, strollers, bouncy seats…basically anything a child needs from birth to age four. If you are done having children or just have too much stuff, please consider donating it to the Lion Ministries to help those children and families in need.

TOYS We are looking for quality new or gently loved toys to give away.
If your babies have outgrown their baby gyms, board books, dolls or trucks or any toy appropriate for a child, birth to age four, we would love to help you get them to another child to love.
