Introducing "GrateCreations Supports" and the first program this year is:
Bibleway Community Learning Center

This is an outstanding program where I actually participated as a member many years ago. As a participant within the Bibleway program, youth are able to venture out, learn, and explore new things. I credit a part of my success to participating within the Bibleway program and I look to become more involved throughout the remainder of 2016.

Below you will find Bibleway's next monumental push towards further establishing a community-centered program that continues to grow with your generous support. Be a blessing today and SUPPORT the Bibleway Community learning Center!

I aspire to be a renowned actor and popular philanthropist.
I plan to find an organization  with an emphasis on youth empowerment.
I have seen some very wonderful things from the founder of On God's Plan Project and truly hope to work more with the project. I feel there is so much to gain from being a part of something so profound.
I hope to gain whatever God intends for me to gain, because I know this organization won't steer me wrong.

Currently I am involved in school, but (in my spare time,) I enjoy playing music and playing sports. With one year from entering high school, I am still ambitious about my future career and accomplishing my goals. From volunteering with Elken, I hope to obtain leadership skills as well as traveling to various places in the United States.

On Saturday, May 21, 2011, I had the opportunity to volunteer with a “Grate” (great) man at Mt. Olive’s Friends and Family Day. I’ve volunteered alongside Mr. Elken many times before but never in this capacity. To watch Elken in his element was both profound and inspiring. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to partake in just a small piece of a considerable vision.

       At the event I took pictures and interacted with the children but it was Elken’s interaction with the children that left me sitting in admiration. As a parent you can only pray that when your child comes in contact with other adults that adult’s motives and intentions are pure and genuine. Elken has a gift with children and our communities need more people like him in our children’s lives to encourage and uplift them and even tap into their own talents.

      Part of being a good Christian is serving God’s people and it is always a pleasure to do so while bringing a smile to their faces. Volunteer work is very important to me because it is something that I do out of love for others without the expectation of monetary gain. This time was no different and it was no mistake that I was able to fellowship with such kind people.
