Health Kits Open Doors for Ministry

Here’s a great mini-mission project with maximum impact – Health Kits! Throughout the year, various missionaries and volunteers use these kits, filled with some basic hygiene items, to “break the ice” with people, get a chance to chat, show the love of God and plant some spiritual seeds. Some of the ministries that use these kits include collegiate ministry; fair ministry; port ministry; homeless ministry and more!

Right now, we are out of these kits! So here’s a challenge! It’s 30 days from the BCM/D Annual Meeting at Kettering Baptist Church. Can you or your church, women‘s ministry or small group make a bag, or ten, or more and bring them to the Annual Meeting? You can drop them off at the Camp Wo-Me-To table. If you have assembled bags and can’t make it to the meeting, contact Melody Knox.

What do you need to assemble a health kit? It’s simple! Fill a two-gallon sized zip-lock bag (whatever size the items will fit into is fine) or a 14 x 12 drawstring cloth bag with the following items:

  • A large bath towel
  • Large comb
  • Washcloth
  • Shampoo (full size)
  • Toothbrush (adult)
  • Soap (full-size bar)
  • Toothpaste (large)
  • Deodorant
