Get Involved

Sonshine and Higher Ground Clubs:

  • If you love to share Jesus and love kids… this is a ministry for you!
  • Sonshine Haven needs your help in our weekly, after school Bible clubs! Several schools are waiting for Sonshine teams to open a club and others just need a few more helpers!
  • Each Sonshine (elementary) and Higher Ground (middle school) Club is unique in style but the same in essentials: Bible lesson, gospel invitation, life application, memory verse, worship, games, and prizes.  Sonshine Haven, a non-profit organization founded by Mari Rothman in 1991, screens all Sonshine  and Higher Ground Club volunteers, trains and supports each club, all leaders and assistants and provides free events throughout the year to children as well as their families.

Christmas Adopt-a-family:

We have many children that would not experience the joy of Christmas if it wasn’t for our faithful donors that “adopt” a family in need. Program is very flexible. We will identify the needs and let you deliver gifts or drop them off at the Haven for delivery – Whichever you like!

Prayer Posse

Please give prayerful consideration to the operations of Sonshine Haven and the many needs that arise from children who participate in our program.  We trust God will answer your prayers appropriately!
