Missionary Spotlight July

This month's Missionary Spotlight is Peoria's South Side Mission.  The vision of the South Side Mission is “to minister to our community in Christ loving ways that provide opportunity for positive change.”  The mission primarily serves the residents of the 61605 zip code, one of the 100 poorest zip codes in the country.  61605 is home to 16,000 people, 49% living below the poverty level, compared to 17% for the country.  The mission is a success with the help of over 38,000 volunteer hours annually.  Their annual budget is $4 million, supported completely by donations, and they receive no government or United Way funding. 

Your gifts this month will help South Side Mission to fulfill their mission, which is “to proclaim Jesus Christ, in His name, love our neighbors and provide hope to the community through life transforming ministries.”

Please be in prayer throughout July for this vital ministry.  Monetary donations are being taken through the third Sunday of June (checks should be made payable to "HCPC Missionary Society").

More information about the South Side Mission can be found through this link:  SOUTH SIDE MISSION

Journey Bags Vs. Trashbags...

Journey Bags Vs. Trashbags...

Dignity…Comfort…Love...Security...

We are so pleased to be partnering again this July with The Forgotten Initiative in Peoria, to provide Journey Bags for area foster children.  Starting Sunday, July 1st, you are invited to pick up a backpack in the church foyer, and to fill it with essentials and comfort items for a special foster child.  Please return your filled bag to the church by Sunday, July 29th, when we will pray together over the Journey Bags before they are sent off.  For more information, please contact Rachel Fitch.
 

At seven he had already moved more times than the total number of years he had been on earth.  And this time, like the times before, he moved with his belongings in a trash bag.  A suitcase, at least, would have added a small degree of dignity to the whole affair--to be placed in another and yet another foster home before reaching 3rd grade.  Trash bags break, you know.  Trash bags can't possibly support the contents of any life, and certainly not a life as fragile as this.   - Social Worker from "The Child I Didn't Adopt"
