We provide financial support to several organizations that we have developed relationships with in order to connect people to local service opportunities. Here ia a list of these supported organizations for 2016-2017.
Freedom House $3,600
The mission of Freedom House Ministries is to serve the needs of homeless families in Green Bay by providing for basic needs and preparing to launch them out on their own. Since it opened in 1992, nearly 900 families have been served, nearly 2,000 children have seen hope restored and fewer than 5% have returned to homelessness.
KINGDOM COME FOOD PANTRY $3,600

St. John’s Shelter / The Micah Center $3,600
St. John's nightly emergency shelter is provided to those most vulnerable in the Green Bay area during the coldest and most difficult months to be outside. St. John's also allows shelter guests an opportunity for engagement with mainstream shelter and housing resources, mental health and healthcare providers and other social service agencies.
The Micah Center is a year round, daytime resource center for adult men and women experiencing homelessness or at-risk for homelessness in the Green Bay community.

House of Hope offers a safe, supportive place where young mothers learn to become competent adults and independent, successful parents by providing programming, services and shelter to homeless pregnant or parenting women, aged 18 to 24, and their children.
THE GIVING TREE Building Space for The Giving Tree Pantry
The Giving Tree provides resources for students and families in need in the Howard-Suamico School District to enable them to participate in educational opportunities and school events. These efforts will give the students the confidence to excel into enthusiastic learners, and ultimately, become productive citizens of our community.
VAPOR INTERNATIONAL $18,000
This is a rapidly growing nonprofit organization that utilizes the favorite sport of a Third World environment, in this case Haiti, as the means to connect with people in need. The hope is Haitian lives will be transformed and the result will be passionate hearts carrying out local ministry work.

Linda Markowski receives our support as she dedicates her life to share the love of Christ to a group of people that have never had the Bible in their language. Linda has been part of our church for many years and still considers Community her home. In addition to finances, we are called to support Linda through relationship, encouragement and prayer.
