Our purpose is to guide one another into a life that is centering on Loving Jesus and Loving others.
We do this by creating environments that equip people to
Deepen their Relationship with God
Develop Relationships with Each Other
Deliver hope and relieve suffering in our community and beyond.
Living out the Kingdom of God in our own backyard.
We want to make this a place where we can do all of that. It means having a staff that that can lead us in worship, help disciple our children and youth, teach preach, bookkeeping, calendaring the events on our campus, communication, and more.
It means creating a building that is safe for the dozens of disciple groups happening on our campus from Scouts, to M.O.P.S. (Mothers of Preschoolers), weddings, funerals, graduations, small groups, and fellowship.
It means creating an environment for our outreach ministries that are impacting 100's of families in Riverview to around the world.
Our church is making a difference. Are you a part of the difference making?
In order to make these things happen, we need to support one another through monetary giving. If you are looking for a way to make a difference and contribute to help our ministries not only continue, but to thrive; I'd like to encourage you to consider helping us end the year well with gifts to our general budget. This is a great time to catch up on your pledges as well. Please pray about it and see where God leads you to give.
We have developed a wonderful relationship with Mbale Women's Christian Ministry over the past year.
Mbale Christian Women Ministries (MWCM)is a Non-Governmental Organization based in the Republic of Uganda, MWCM is a non-profit, interdenominational organization started in 1995 by Christian women, with the aim of working together to fulfill the great commission cited in Matthew 28:19. The organization is registered with the Government of Uganda and Uganda Allied Medical Professionals.
To promote the gospel of Christ, strengthening diversity of women and communities through sharing the good news of the Kingdom of God, teaching, discipling and social action.
Our very own Christine Koolo, one of the founders of this ministry, is from Uganda and led by a calling from God, returned to her home in Mbale, Uganda last year to lead ministries she began several years ago.
This ministry is responsible for
Planting New Churches
Creating Medical Outreach
Care of widows and orphans
This is not a large ministry, but it is a powerful one. Through your support last year, we were able to bring aid to 100's of people. Many gave their life to Jesus, many were given life support through our seed ministry, many were given access to needed medications and many found a new zest for following Jesus. We were also able to help revitalize those Ugandan's who are running these ministries.
This year we are taking a next step in our work with them.
In cooperation with Mission Smiles International we are taking a team of Dentist and Hygienist to administer dental work with those in the Mbale area and to train the Ugandan Nurses there how to do hygiene work. We will be taking Hygiene kits that we will leave with them so that they can continue the work of aid once we are gone.
We will also be doing eye testing and taking 250 pairs of glasses and eye kits so they can continue that work as well.
The availability and affordability of eye care and dental care is not common in Uganda. I am so proud of what we are doing especially that we are able to come along side those doing work there already and bring them tools to expand their ministry. We are able to make a profound impact on these communities. You are doing great work in the Kingdom of God.
If you would like to help, we are looking for donations.
- The glass kit, for 250 glasses is $325
- Hygiene Kit to continue hygiene work after we are gone: $1250
- Seed for Widows ministry Beans $1 kg Maize $5 kg (this seed can help support for a year)
- Laptop Computer (for communication, accounting, fliers, etc. They need something they can use for internet and word processing and that is reliable.)
- Bibles $10 a Bible (these are purchased in their language in Uganda)
- Medical Outreach $600 treats over 100 people with medicine
