We are an all volunteer and all donation-based program; however, this Fall, we are setting a price for each of our programs because it is expensive to provide these ministries and we need some help in paying for them. We aren't a church so we don't have regular tithes and offerings. So, your donations are greatly appreciated. But, don't be dismayed! If you can't afford it, come anyway! We'll do what we can to help you and we'll all pray for more donations from folks who can afford to help support our programs!!! Many of the people who use our services are not able to pay for them. But, they usually find some other way to help! So, praise God, all things do work together for those who love and serve the Lord! :) Join us!
Here are just a few of our programs:
The Rock is newest program offered by TCMK. It is actually a Christian school. The inspiration for TCMK was Mandy Ketchem, who was a very dedicated school teacher. So, having a Christian school has always been a part of our vison for TCMK. Currently, we have students in the middle and high school grades. While we want to be the first to brag on our local school systems, if you are looking for a Christian school environment or if you have fallen a little behind in school and want some help catching up or just need that little bit of extra attention or a helping hand, give us a call or just stop by. We would love to have you. Each of our students works at their own pace. We use all accredited school materials and are registered with the State of Missouri as a Christian School. As we go along, we will be working to seek other accreditations, but for now, just know that you will be working with folks who have your best interest at heart and we're here if you'd like to be a part of our school. :) Call Jackie at (660) 676-7070 or Amber at (660) 346-1839. Or stop by, we'll be glad to show you around and discuss your needs and desires for schooling options for your student.
TCMK Kids! (Grades 5-8)
This an after-school program for middle schoolers that is so awesome and fun they'll want to come everyday! However, it is offered only on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. We feed 'em (they're hungry after school!), we have recreation, crafts, lifeskills training, music, art, and more! And, what the parents love . . . we help them with their homework and we talk a lot about prevention of things like under-aged drinking, cussing, not smoking or using drugs, learning to respect our parents and leaders, helping at home, doing well in school, etc.!! In addition, we have a great Bible study and support group that the kids really enjoy! It is "their time" and they get to connect with God and with each other! It is fabulous! It is amazing to see our TCMK Kids just blossom while they are here. We hear good things from their teachers at school, too. So, get in touch with us real soon so your kiddo or grand-kiddo can get started! Teachers, counselors, court personnel, therapists, feel free to make referrals to us!
TCMK Teen Leadership Academy (Grades 6-12)
This is an after-school leadership training program for high schoolers on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00 - 6:00 pm. Think your teenager isn't a leader?? Well, we challenge you to think twice!! God has a plan for each one of these teens (even those who have been in trouble!) and we work with them to help them find that special interest, special talent, that special something that God gave them that HE intends them to use to help with His Kingdom!! :) So, we have lots of fun exploring who this Child of God is and what special plans God has for each one of them! We help them look at their futures and think about and plan how they can achieve their goals and dreams! We also do some Bible study, prayer, crafts, music, recreation, art, lifeskills, . . . . oh yes, and homework!! So, if you've got a teen lookin' for something fun to do . . . send 'em our way. We'll help them find some things in life that they will really enjoy and can feel good about. We'll help them become a leader!
Ladies Bible Study & Support Group
Area Youth Groups and Churches
We encourage all of you to find and attend the church of your choice on a regular basis. You will be amazed how much it will change your life to find and embrace a church family. We are so blessed in our area to have some really awesome churches. So, go, find one, and attend regularly!! Take your family, take a friend, take a neighbor!!! But, . . . go! And, don't get hung up on the fact that the people at the church aren't as perfect as you think they should be . . . there is a reason they are in church!!! They aren't perfect but they want to try to get closer to God and learn more about Him so they can try to be more like Him . . . just like you, . . . you probably aren't perfect, either. Forgive old hurts, let people be seekers of God just like you, and go! :) Put your focus on God and go! You'll be so glad you did!
Also, all you teens out there - most churches have a YOUTH GROUP on either Sunday or Wednesday nights. Find one and GO! It will be one of the best things you will ever do and it will change your life! You will always remember your awesome youth group days. So, FIND A YOUTH GROUP AND GO EVERY WEEK!!! :) You'll be glad you did. Make time in it for your schedule!!!
We haven't left you out. You are VERY IMPORTANT to the stability of your family and your home. Although we are hoping to start a Men's Bible Study soon, there is a really wonderful program available for men through an organization that we are partnering up with. We will be providing more information about this on our website later as we continue to get it set up. In the meantime, if you are a man and looking for a Men's Bible Study, give us a call, drop us an e-mail, or come by and we'll get you in touch with this other organization that is designed for Men and MEN ONLY!! :) Check out this information for a great Men's Bible Study and Parenting Class:
