Jesus Loves the Little Children (J.L.T.L.C.)
Our vision, mission and calling: Discipling and equipping children to serve God and others.
We meet every Tuesday at 6pm, to enjoy a family-centered meal, worship together, and to study God’s Word, and pray.
The children are involved and engaged in helping serve the local community! Many lives are changed and eyes are opened when the children assemble and distribute blessing bags for the homeless! The bags contain socks, gloves, personal items, food, water, a personal note from a child and a blanket.
The children also have opportunities to attend camp in summer/fall. We usually host 2 camps to spiritually strengthen our children.
Transportation to/from JLTLC meetings is provided regularly by volunteered vans and private vehicles with verified/qualified drivers.
Expanding the Vision — DANIELLE’S HOME OF HOPE for Children
A house in Gladewater is being repaired/remodeled to be used as a temporary shelter for children. A primary goal of this emergency shelter is to meet the needs of children by providing them with an immediate, safe and loving Christian environment until restoration with a family member or foster care becomes available.
Danielle Jones, a CPS worker, spent many nights caring for children in CPS offices because no foster homes were available; she had a vision to provide a place of refuge for those precious children awaiting a family. Danielle left this mantle behind for us as Jesus escorted her to Heaven, but the need remains! DHH will be a Christian Home that will provide 24 hour emergency residential care for children in need while involved with CPS.
To make a difference, we appreciate the support of our community. These are some of our needs: Prayer, donations, van, van drivers, and volunteers.
We are now connected with 3 different sites that give or allow donations for the ministry. They are:

JLTLC Urgent Needs:
Monthly Partners – We are currently needing monthly partners who will give to JLTLC on a monthly basis to ensure that funds are available to transport children and to meet program expenses. Occasional or one-time donors are also appreciated and needed.
Bus/Van – The number of children involved with JLTLC is multiplying; we frequently run out of room on the vans we now use for transporting the children. A bus or newer van would help meet the demands of growing number of children who need transportation to activities.
Major Project of JLTLC:
Danielle’s Home of Hope for Children Needs:
The air conditioner/heater has been installed; we now have flooring in the entire home. Currently, we need to purchase building materials to complete the kitchen, trim work for the entire house, and other supplies to finish the interior.
