November:

During November we have the opportunity to partner with Mountain View Elementary School and Good Samaritan Ministries through serving!

Mountain View:

Our partnership with Mountain View serves one of the most economically and educationally challenged areas of our city. Since 2010, we have sought to be an encouragement to the school and community through tangible expressions of God’s love. Our goal is to build trust and relationships with the staff, children, and families through direct support and involvement. Great opportunities are before us, and there is much to be done!

December

During December we are partnering with Compassion International to fund the build of a child development center in Africa. Church-based child development centers are committed to creating a stable, nurturing environment where children experience God’s love and acceptance in tangible ways.

This opportunity will require a commitment of $28,000 to build a new center. To give to this need directly, visit gfcnow.com/give and select “Global Outreach” from the menu. All funds contributed to this fund during October-December will be given directly to this need.
