First Presbyterian Church at 201 S 11th Street is hosting a Compassion Sunday on October 2nd at 12:30. This is a national event that helps people grow in their understanding of God’s very special love for the poor. It’s also an opportunity for each of us to intervene in the life of at least one child in poverty. You are invited to come to our church at 12:30 for a free picnic lunch on the grounds and then learn about the ministry of Compassion International.
Who is Compassion International?
For more than 60 years God has been working through sponsors and local churches around the world to change the lives of impoverished children throughout the world. Through Compassion’s child sponsorship program, children are reached on spiritual, physical, economic and social levels—meeting the needs of the whole child. And preparing them to become responsible Christian adults. Our mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name!
