Collections: Beds Ministry
Using Psalm 4:8 as the guiding mission, the Beds Program provides new beds to children who don’t have a bed of their own in Kansas City urban and suburban communities. Our purpose is to recognize and address the physical need for sleep, thus providing a sense of comfort, rest, and peace. Through this coordinated demonstration of God’s love and provision we will bring smiles and comfort to children and families. The Program’s focus is to serve the children referred by Resurrection's partner school districts and specific mission partners.
