Child Sponsorship Sunday

Sunday | May 23 (Date change) | During the 10:45 Service

Through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries' child sponsorship program, children living in poverty have the chance to participate in church-run child development programs that focus on their spiritual, emotional, physical, and educational growth. They also have the opportunity to be linked with caring sponsors who commit to pray for the child, their family, and future. With your help, more children can receive the care and support that comes with sponsorship. Pray about how you can help.
