GLCC began advocating child-sponsorship through Compassion International in October of 2004. We currently have over 200 children in our GLCC Compassion database. Most of them are from the Chiapas, Mexico region, but several are from other regions including Africa, South America, Asia, and the Caribbean. As time goes on, we look forward to the day when we can organize a trip to meet, visit, and minister directly to our children.
For as little as $35 a month, each sponsored child has an opportunity to hear the gospel, receive food, healthcare and schooling, and come under the care of a local Bible teaching church. Only eternity will truly tell the rewards of serving these children who mean so much to our Father.
Are you ready to sponsor a child through Compassion International? Visit the Compassion website to view more information and statistics to find out why GLCC so highly recommends this child sponsorship program.
Once you're ready to sponsor, choose the "Sponsor a Child" link. After you've signed up and received your child's information, please bring the picture to the church to have a color copy made for our Compassion Wall in the children's ministry hallway.
