Lawton Church Recognized for Child Safety Efforts

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ A Lawton church will distribute Family ID Kits to the public for free in support of the federal Child ID Program.

United in Christ Discipleship, Int. (UICDI) is being recognized by the American Football Coaches Association and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Child ID Program for joining Bishop T.D. Jakes in the largest faith-based family safety initiative in US history.

The Family ID Kits are used to provide critical information to law enforcement if a family member goes missing.

Each Family ID Kit includes a DNA cheek swab, an inkless activation pad and fingerprinting card. The fingerprinting card has step-by-step instructions detailing how to take a fingerprint, a standard fingerprint area, sections for recording a child's physical description and identifying marks, sections for recording doctors' phone numbers and a space for a current photograph. The kits are to be kept in the home by a parent or guardian and can quickly be turned over to law enforcement to assist their efforts to locate a missing person.

UICDI is a non-denominational Christian ministry that focuses on the needs of the total person and the total family. UICDI is a relevant ministry addressing today's issues by becoming involved in the affairs of the local community. May 25th is National Missing Children's Day. In support of the day, on June 8th at 10:00 AM, UICDI will distribute the ID kits at the church, located at 19 NE 20th Street in Lawton, OK. The kits are free. For this event, UICDI will have fun activities for the kids and food for all.
