What is Mr. Doug’s Store?
Mr. Doug’s store is an exciting opportunity for elementary students in grades K through 5 to earn tickets and redeem them for prizes and fun while they learn about God, develop a deeper understanding of who God is, and dig deeper into his word.
Students earn tickets by bringing their Bible to church, memorizing the monthly memory verse, completing the Church Challenge Sermon Quiz, by memorizing the Catechism questions and answers, and more. Pick up a brochure in Mr. Doug’s Store any Sunday to learn more!
About Mr. Doug
Doug Meberg was a man loved by God. The joy that he found in God’s love radiated from him and was felt by his co-workers at his job of 43 years, by his wife, by his four children and nine grandchildren, and by the friends and families of Christ Community Church.
Working with children and youth for over 45 years, he longed for his students to know the word of God and be captured by the love of God. He encouraged them by offering candy and prizes for bringing their Bibles to class and learning their memory verses – celebrating their successes with tangible rewards. He knew that God’s love could not be earned by his work or by the work of his students, but he had faith in the powerful word of God and knew that if his students knew God’s word, it would work powerfully in their lives.
From the first year that he joined our church in 1998, “Mr. Doug” began serving as a Sunday school teacher at Christ Community, continuing to serve year after year until he was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013. As the lavish love of the Lord moved Mr. Doug to lavish love on the children of our community, we opened Mr. Doug’s Store in this same spirit.
