Unity Through Community in November

By Kevin Bonnar

We had so many amazing opportunities to get out in the community and share the love of Jesus last month!

“Not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:25

We partnered up with our friends at The Bluffland Hiking Group to host a Fall Hike on Nov 11th, in La Crosse, WI. It was a chilly morning but we kept things hot with a scavenger hunt for kiddos and some fun contests and prizes too. We stopped during the hike to give thanks to God for His creation and for providing a path to Him through Jesus! For that, we are thankful.

We partnered with Olivet Lutheran Church in La Crosse, WI to have a Blessing of the Hunt on November, 13th.

We set up archery and tomahawks and folks were treated to all kinds of good chili from the chili cook-off. Ray shared one of his memorable hunting trips. This one had everyone laughing and on the edge of their seats!

Ray then shared his testimony and how Kicking Bear got started. To close, we prayed for all the deer hunters who would be heading out for the opening weekend of gun season and gave away some awesome prizes. We are thankful for Olivet and their heart for serving the community alongside Kicking Bear!

Later, we were invited to have an adventure night at the Boys and Girls Club in Sparta, WI on November 16th. We love these events and the chance to partner with great organizations like the BGC, who has a heart for kids and families!

Lastly, we got involved in the amazing Rotary Lights display and parade in La Crosse, WI this year too! If you are in the area, check out our tree down at Riverside Park in La Crosse. We are also signed up to help volunteer after the new year when they take all the lights down. Rotary Lights is a really amazing chance for families to be wowed by all the lights and create a holiday tradition. Definitely check it out if you can!

Kicking Bear is so very thankful for another great year of camps, hunts and mentorship, thank you Jesus!!

Kicking Bear Ministry has been taking youth off the streets and changing their lives for over 20 years God has allowed us to keep His camps and outings completely free-of-charge to all participants due to the great partners He has brought to the ministry. Under the direction of God Kicking Bear has changed the lives of thousands of kiddos and their families!  Thank you for your prayers, partnership and support.

We are able to continue to host free events to the public and change the lives of the ones who need us most because of the continued financial support of people like you.
