Greenwood Community Church has the privilege of partnering with several ministries around the world. The 2017 Missions Project is an opportunity to financially give a larger amount to one specific ministry and project to help expand their kingdom impact. After much prayer and discussion involving seven varied international projects, the Missions Team has selected Emmanne Ministries
, in Theri, Kenya, as the one ministry we will focus our 2017 financial efforts on. Emmanne’s vision is “Shaping Lives in Theri, Kenya with the Good News of Jesus Christ.” Their five initiatives are a Children’s Home, a Healthcare and Medical Clinic, a Christian High School, a church plant, and a Job-Creation Training Center. Building the Children’s Home will be the first priority on the five acres of land that have been given to them.
Emmanne Ministries has already raised $31,000. We are giving $20,000 through the missions budget and $20,000 through the missions fund (money that people donate to Greenwood specifically to be spent on missions). Our goal is to help them attain a total of $100,000 in order to begin the building project. Please prayerfully consider helping with the remaining $29,000 by partnering with Emmanne Ministries (we can receive stock donations as well).
