WCL Young Family Seed Packing, April 22 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Who: Families with young children – Invite your Friends!

When: Sunday, April 21 ­– 9-10:15 a.m. and 11-12:15 a.m.

Where: Willow Crystal Lake, 100 South Main Street, Crystal Lake

Why: Seed packing is a family-friendly opportunity that takes place at every Willow Creek location―where everyone can serve together, making a lasting difference and bring hope to families in Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Congo, and Zimbabwe.
At least half a million people will benefit from these seed packs. Families will grow small kitchen gardens, church gardens will provide nutrition for the sick in their congregations, schools will grow vegetables for orphans and vulnerable children who attend their schools, families can realize income from the surplus produce. Because the seeds are distributed by local churches, people will see the church as a transformational organization in their communities and villages.

This is a fantastic event created specifically for families with young children, including opportunities to pack seeds, engage in learning about planting, and explore different fresh vegetables through different sensory opportunities. Kids ages 5–5th grade are invited to pack seeds with their parents while children ages 4 and under are encouraged to participate in our Promiseland programming.

Note: Kids ages 5­–5th grade and their parents will be visiting multiple stations throughout the session, including packing seeds, sensory tables, and a planting station. Kids ages 4 and under are encouraged to participate in our Promiseland programming
