West Mabee Club Gets Teens to Church

Thirteen teenage boys were dressed up and ready for church at 9:00 a.m. Easter Sunday when Jamar Giddings picked them up at the West Mabee Boys & Girls Club, where he is director. Four teenage girls were also at the club, ready to be picked up by Erika Thomas, program director.  Jamar drove the boys to his church, Cathedral of Praise in Sand Springs.

He has been doing this every Sunday since he started at the West Mabee Club nine years ago. More kids were waiting for him on  Easter than ever before. Erika drives the girls to her church, Calvary Baptist, in Sapulpa. Why is this news? Personally, I found it almost impossible to get my own two kids to church as teens.  The West Mabee kids are getting themselves out of bed, out the door and to the club to be picked up! My hat is off to Jamar and Erica. After being at the club all week, and attending club sports events on Saturdays, they are taking their one day off to see that the kids who want to go to church get there. It’s more than dedication to their jobs, it’s dedication to the kids, and that deserves recognition.
