Through ICCM children receive two hot meals a day, school uniform, school supplies, and an excellent education. We are in need of $780.00 to fulfill our current commitment for 2019. It is very important to fulfill our commitment by August of 2019 or these children will have to leave school and be unable to continue their education. Please be praying about how you might be able to help provide for these children. Donations of any amount are welcome. Please mark your donations “2KIDS” if giving by check. If you are giving to this cause using our website, be sure to use the fund called “ICCM”.
Golden Arrow is a place for individuals who are recovering from mental illness in our community. The drop-in center provides peer support, activities, as well as social and relaxing settings for their consumers. THANK YOU to all who have provided food and supplies over these past months. The Director, Tim Galbraith, is most grateful, as are the consumers. We are the ONLY church doing this on a regular basis for them. If you would rather make a cash donation towards the supplies, mark it and place it in the offering plate.
