Using Psalm 4:8 as the guiding mission, the Good Night Sleep Tight ministry provides new twin beds and linens to children who don’t have a bed of their own. Our purpose is to recognize and address the physical need for sleep, which provides a sense of comfort, rest, and peace. Through this coordinated demonstration of God’s love and provision we will bring smiles and comfort to children and families. The program’s focus is to serve families that are part of the local elementary schools. With the help of school officials, we will identify children who need beds and linen kits. Twin bed sets are purchased by the missions committee through a special arrangement with the Mattress Firm Clearance Store at 71st and Riverside in Tulsa.
