You Can Sponsor a Child for a Year…

Since there is no reliable public school in the Democratic Republic of Congo, many parents are unable to send their children to school, or else forego other basic needs in order to pay for private school tuition and supplies.

Our Child Sponsorship program was established to address this urgent need. By gaining a basic education, children are better able to learn the scriptures, develop their potential in the body of Christ, and build a foundation for providing for their future families.

$480 covers a child’s education for a full school year. This includes the tuition expense, as well as providing the child with a uniform and a few school supplies. You can give a single gift of $480 or give in regular installments throughout the year.

Annual deadline for child sponsorship: August 15

Please give at least $160 by August 15 so we can pay for a child’s first trimester of school.

The Congo Building Fund

The Fellowship in the Congo will soon be losing the facility that they have been using for many years for worship services, activities, classes and counseling. The cost for a suitable location is a huge financial challenge for our sister church there. We are partnering with them to raise finances to secure a new location.
