Every child, teenager and mother who enters Methodist Family Health’s statewide continuum of care receives a Bible or spiritual study guide. These paperback books are made possible by the Children’s Bible Fund, a part of Methodist Family Health’s spirituality program; however, money in this fund is low. Methodist Family Health is seeking contributions of paperback Bibles and spiritual guide books to continue our tradition of providing spiritual guidance and hope to abandoned, abused and neglected children and families in Arkansas.
A list of age-appropriate, paperback Bibles and guides can be found athttps://www.methodistfamily.org/ways-to-give.html. The links beside each book are to Amazon and Cokesbury, which allow donors to shop online and ship directly to Methodist Family Health. The books we use most often are:
· My First Hands-On Bible
· Hands-On Bible
· Comic Book Bible
· 3-Minute Devotional for Teen Girls, Guys, Boys or Girls
· Teen Life Application Study Bible (NLT)
· NIV Celebrate Recovery Bible
· Jesus Calling Devotional
· The Jesus Storybook Bible
These books and funds are made possible by contributions from churches across the state as well as small groups, mission committees and individuals. Adults and children throughout Arkansas can help provide a Bible Bounty to the children and families in our care by:
- Ordering and shipping a paperback Bible or devotional to Methodist Family Health;
- Shopping locally and delivering any of the paperback titles listed above to:
Methodist Family Health, 1600 Aldersgate Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72205;
