Child Sponsorship

  •  Cost $360 per child annually

Our two children are 13 year old Chezca Mae Ortillano and 16 year old Jemwel C. Solis.  Both children live in the Philippines and attend Dumaguete Kalauman Center for Development.  If you are able to help support this very worthy cause, please write “child sponsorship” on your mission envelope.  Thank you for your continued support of this ongoing project.

 

 

Church World Service:  Blankets (July & August)

 

In 1966, Church World Service created a hands-on opportunity for congregations and others to come together and love their neighbors in a tangible way.  We would like to purchase blankets, Fleece and Wool, and show our love for our fellow brothers and sisters.

 

CWS Fleece blankets are appropriate for warmer climates. These fleece blankets are water repellant, durable, warm and soft. These blankets keep families covered without adding bulk.

CWS Wool blankets are water-resistant and flame-retardant. They are extremely durable, warm and great for frigid temperatures or other extreme weather conditions.

 

Your donation to CWS blankets will ensure individuals and families will receive help when they need it most, whether they be a refugee, victim of a natural disaster or homeless.

 

Now is the time for compassion!

 

We will be collecting donations for CWS blankets during the months of July and August.  Please write “blankets” on your mission envelope.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 15:58

Meals Ministry: Do you know someone who is shut-in or recovering from a hospitalization, serious injury or illness, or mourning the loss of a loved one that could benefit from a hot or a frozen meal? Ben Salem has a Meals Ministry Team that can help ease the daily burdens of families or individuals within our church and community by providing ready-to-eat meals. If you would like to volunteer with this ministry or know of someone in need, please contact Karen Hayman or the Church Office.

Called to Care: Trained volunteers from our church are available to assist the Pastor in visiting shut-in or hospitalized church members who are no longer able to attend regular worship services or participate in church functions. If you would like a “Called to Care” volunteer to visit you, please contact the Pastor at the Church Office (570) 386-3870. We are looking for more volunteers for this Committee!

If you are interested in sharing God’s love with shut-in members of our congregation, please contact Pastor Randy.
