WE NEED ADVOCATES!
WE HAVE RESOURCES FOR GREAT CHURCH PROJECTS.
So much is going on in so many churches. Faith Promise, mission budgets, VBS projects, Christmas projects, and more.
Will you consider being an advocate for
Children of Promise in your church?
Here are some resources that may help!
KIDS 4 KIDS - This is a series of five activity lessons to use with children. It is great for VBS Sunday School, or Christmas. Each lesson has an activity and a story about a Children of Promise child. Teaching children the joy of making a difference is important, and you can do it while you make a difference. Click the KIDS4KIDS button at the bottom of this article to download the material.
SPECIAL PROJECTS - Contact Children of Promise for an idea for a special project. Right now our biggest need is for groups and individuals to buy mosquito nets. Malaria is the number one killer of children in Sub-Saharan Africa. These nets are the most effective way to prevent malaria. Often four can sleep under a net. Cost varies from country to country but they average about $10. (Call us if you want to help a specific country, and we will give you the price of a net in that country.) It's a GREAT special project that saves lives.
FAITH PROMISE AND CHURCH BUDGET - Your church reaches beyond their walls, and around the world. Does Children of Promise help you meet your church vision? Children of Promise is incredibly effective, accountable, and we change children's lives every day with hope for a far better future. Use Children of Promise as part of your world-wide vision!
DECEMBER DOLAR DIFFERENCE - When the times comes for a holiday project, consider dedicating every dollar bill in the offering to COP. It will not affect your budget, it can be a fun way to help children. People will throw an extra dollar in. We have fun and interesting announcements.
HAVE A CHILDREN OF PROMISE FREEDOM SUNDAY
Children can be set free to a whole new path in life. (Read the story below!) Some studies show child sponsorship is the best way to protect children from human trafficking. Some of the best stories are stories that never happen, stories of children who are protected and flourish. Children are surrounded by an encouraging, supportive, and protective church community. It can make all the difference!
SPEAKERS - As schedule permits, we would love to come to your church to speak. Large or small -- we want to come.
IT STARTED IN A STAFF MEETING, AND AS A JOKE. (I thought!) Courtney Rice suggest I run a marathon and ask people to sponsor me per mile. (She was the first). I thought, how hard could this be? But then a donor said he would match the total of everyones gifts. NO JOKE!! You can read about it on a Microsoft Sway ..click this link. Click the MARATHON RUN INFO button below.
