Together we can continue to impact people around the world with the Good News!
At The Church we have always said that we are a people of faith, known for our love and a voice of hope in the community, and we want to do anything short of sin to reach people for the cause of Christ.
We’ve found a new and exciting way to demonstrate that, over the top crazy kind of love, through the work of One Child Matters, a ministry that brings hope, truth, life, love, and mercy to 40,000 children living in poverty around the world. One Child Matters equips these children to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for transformational development: spirit, mind, and body.
Like us, they believe that God has a purpose for everyone, and they approach their ministry to children around the world in the same way. They look for like-hearted people who are willing to change the world for one child through sponsorship. We’re excited that The Church is able to partner with One Child Matters because sponsorship is the perfect opportunity to make a lasting impact on the life of a child. With your help, a child can receive nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and lasting hope in Jesus Christ.
I encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child today. Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ and change the world together!
Extreme poverty is an overwhelming global problem that breaks the heart of God. Fortunately, we know of a solution that's modeled after God's own interventions in the world. It's incredibly effective and life-changing. You start with one child, and choose to sponsor them to help lift them out of poverty. By ensuring your child develops in a well-rounded way, they can break the cycle of poverty forever!
Sponsorship allows us to address each major area of a child's life:
Spiritually, children have the opportunity to accept Christ as Savior and become mature disciples.
The programs provide educational support and tutoring to help children academically.
Health screenings and hygiene training address common health concerns. Nutritious snacks, meals, and supplements help children grow into healthier adults.
Sponsorship brings children to a program that provides safe places to play and develop friendships with input from caring adults.
One Child Matters can create a crucial foundation of support, but there's another important factor in a child's development - YOU! As a sponsor, you are an incredible source of encouragement. Your letters and prayers are powerful and effective. Your faithful support opens doors of opportunity - it is one of the best investments you can make in God's kingdom!
"Honduras" means "great depths," which suits the country's tremendous culture and pride. But Honduras is also one of the poorest countries in Latin America. More than two-thirds of the children One Child Matters serve come from single-mother homes. Children see issues like substance abuse and domestic violence every day.
What's more, schools in Honduras are overcrowded with as many as 80 children sharing a classroom. Less than a third of children go on to secondary school. And Honduras is overrun by gangs who prey on children who feel undervalued and overlooked. But sponsorship is an intervention and an opportunity for positive impact that can transform an entire community. Meet the children we serve in Honduras who are waiting for a sponsor!
When asked if she had a letter from her sponsor, young Hiwot came back quickly, clutching a treasure. It was a postcard sent more than two years earlier, and it contained a prayer that helped transform her life.
A group of sponsors committed to transforming a project that serves over 200 children in Kenya. What they didn’t realize at the time was that life-transformation would not stop at the children.
Ilene found a new hope at the Philippines Child Rescue Home, where she learned to process through all the abuse she and her sisters suffered at the hands of others. Her transformation was so profound, she wanted to go back to her village. Watch what happened next...
