  • ONGOING COLLECTIONS FOR MISSION

    We have continuous collections for 


    St. John's Breadline:  We collect plastic containers with lids which are used to send home meals for those who are served through St. John's Breadline, a ministry to feed the hungry in Springfield, IL.  There is a collection barrel located on the main floor hallway.  

    Shoeman Ministry:  We collect good used shoes to donate to the Shoeman Ministry, who use these shoes to provide for needs in both the United States and various countries in Africa.  For more information on the Shoeman Ministry please go to their website.  There is a collection barrel on the main floor hallway.  We ask that all pair of shoes either have their laces tied together or have a rubber band holding them together.  

    Penny Jar / Angel Tree:  We collect loose change in an empty 5 gallon water bottle located on a table in the main hallway. The money collected is used to purchase items for the local Angel Tree ministry which provides Christmas gifts for children in need.  

    Food Bank:  We have a grocery shopping cart located in the main hallway where you may drop off food items for the community food bank. The community food bank is located in the Salvation Army Store.  There is a list of the items most needed in the shopping cart, but all food is accepted.  

     


INTERNATIONAL CRISIS AID

International Crisis Aid St Louis based International Crisis Aid's mission is to assist in sustaining life, bring encouragement to those suffering and collaborate with other relief organizations in bringing necessary foods, materials and medicines to people in times of crisis, particularly in life and death situations. Additionally, they attempt to bring public awareness to these situations and to solicit citizen involvement whenever and wherever possible. All assistance and resources are traditionally secured in the country of need when possible, so as to develop relations with the local business people and foster a true spirit of cooperation. Demonstrating God's love and care for people is their highest and most cherished goal. To accomplish this vision they continue to target their efforts in "no-go zones" where other organizations cannot or will not go. Frequently this means taking on escalated risks. ICA feels that these risks are a small price to pay in a game where the stakes are so high: literally, life and death. There are many ways to support ICA. A donation of $35 will feed a family of 6-8 in Ethiopia for a month. Sponsorships of a specific child in Ethiopia or Haiti are also available – you’ll receive a photo, bio & annual updates. They also ask for your prayer support. For more information visit the ICA website at www.crisisaid.org
