One Church – One Child

Do you belong to a church community? If so, you could help support the life of a child by igniting interest within your circle of church friends and family to become a part of the “One Church – One Child” campaign.  This initiative is designed to inspire churches accross North America to partner with us in caring for at least one ICC child. 

 

Over the last couple of years ICC-USA has launched a direct mail campaign to Seventh-day Adventist churches in the United States and Canada. We also have many different denominational churches that are faithful supporters of the children’s programs.  Over 1,200 churches have contacted us for information and out of those a little over half have actually contributed money to help the children in the years that ICC has been in existence. The other half may have shown our video and encouraged individuals within their congregation to get involved. In the last two years, 257 churches or classes have actively been involved in helping; 116 of those sponsor one or more children.

 

Some classes send an envelope around to collect $1 to $3+ from each class member to raise funds to sponsor their child each month. Other churches have used the Kids Helping Kids mission project with their VBS program to provide meals, shoes, mattresses, and even cows. Still other churches have formed mission groups, held fundraiser dinners, car washes and other activities to help raise funds to help the children. We have some Canadian churches and donors who have been able to join with our partner, PROLASA-Canada, to help the children and receive Canadian tax-deductions. There are literally thousands of churches and millions of Christians who could help these precious children to have a family home, Christian education and learn about the Father of the fatherless.

 

God asks us to take care of the poor and the orphans (see James 1:27). Will you speak up for the ICC children at your church or Bible study group by showing a DVD? You might be just the person God will use to make a difference in the lives of these children because you share the information with someone else. Would you be the contact person for your church for our next mailing? Visit the Get Involved page on our website and contact us to see if your church is helping. We would love to see your church involved in the One Church-One Child Project!
