Sometimes when we preach and proclaim the love of Christ to our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, we use words. Most of the time, the message comes from our lives and the work of service to others. Our efforts include:
 

Matthew’s Crossing Food Bank

Here is a fellowship opportunity to assist with various needs of this food bank.

Christmas in July! 

75 Shoebox Gifts (our goal) for children ages birth through 4 years in foster placement were delivered Tuesday morning!

The staff at Christian Family Care Phoenix Location were so delighted with the Shoeboxes and your amazing generosity in sharing HIS love with these little ones. 

The Shoeboxes will be distributed this month when the school age children in foster placement receive a backpack.  “Thank You”!

I-HELP
