miqlat sponsorships

Become a sponsor to help children and young adults in rural Malawi. This program creates access to a new quality of life and expands opportunities for flourishing instead of just surviving. Sponsors give $46 per child per month. This provides high quality education (at Miqlat Primary School, Private Secondary School or Trade School), uniforms and all necessary school supplies, daily nutritious meals, access to quality healthcare, sustainable agricultural techniques, life-giving spiritual discipleship. Contact Lauri with questions or if you want to become a sponsor.

sewing gospel seeds

We are partnering with 3 other local EPC churches for a special outreach project! We are coming together to provide 400 sewing machines to Afghan refugee families so they can sew clothes and/or start a business. We are collecting new or gently used sewing machines now through Oct 30. Make a donation or order new machine on Amazon. Contact Lauri with questions and get more information.
