In 2017, Pinellas Community Church will engage an initiative to bring peace to children through strategic giving and outreach. Our goal is that each person in our church family will give one dollar a day throughout 2017 so that these children can be fed and hear the life-changing message about Jesus. Together, we can make one dollar a day count for good–– for life!
We must raise $110,000 to complete the following:
The Lord's Lighthouse - Just a short drive over the Skyway bridge you'll find a section of Tampa Bay that resembles many Third World countries. It's a place where migrants have gathered, hoping to find work for their families in peace from the hardships of poverty. Partnering with The Lord's lighthouse, the peace initiative will help us bring food in the necessary supplies they need.
PCC YOUTH & KIDS - In 2018, our goal for reaching the kids and youth in our community includes adding a large patio area to our youth center to accommodate the growth in the student ministries. We will also continue offsetting the fees so that teens can be equipped at camp and children are taught the love of Jesus through our summer VBS Program.
Maasai Church Plant - For centuries the Maasai have been a warring people on the plains of East Africa. Today, many of them are coming to Christ and the need for churches for these new believers to be trained and encouraged grows every day. We're building new churches to meet this need with the Peace Initiative.
House of Hope - Over 30,000 children live on the streets of Costa Rica. This leaves them open to gangs, drugs, prostitution and violence. Soon, these orphans will have a roof over their head. The Peace Initiative will allow us to partner with several churches throughout the southeast to build the House of Hope orphanage, a place of peace to call home.
Spring Valley, Kenya - We've seen hundreds of children saved from starvation and giving the necessary tools to overcome extreme poverty. The Peace Initiative will help us provide food that brings peace to the hungry that so many face.
Global Ministries - PCC has partners with missionaries serving in Lithuania, Ethiopia, Malaysia and the youth of Florida. Our partnerships help these missionaries reach lost people around the world with the good news and peace of the Gospel.
Feed St. Pete - For the past four years, PCC has fed tens of thousands of people in our community through Feed St. Pete. Through your partnership, we are feeding families, providing meals for elementary school aged children on the weekend, and supplying those in senior care homes with much needed food.
