At Connect Church we say that we are all about faith, family and friends.
We actively support a carefully targeted set of local, national and international organizations doing great work to help people, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
One of these international missions is our very own Metrowest Caribbean Mission, and we have a new, exciting — and very personal — way for you and your family to be involved!
We at Connect have partnered with One Child Matters, an international organization that brings hope, truth, life, love and mercy to 40,000 children living in poverty around the world. One Child Matters (OCM) equips these children to reach their God-given potential by creating opportunities for transformational development of the spirit, mind and body, through their monthly child sponsorship program.
Here’s the amazing, personal part: Connect’s new partnership with OCM has created an incredibly unique opportunity for our Connect family to sponsor children all in the same village in the Dominican Republic! Not only can your small monthly investment make a lasting impact in the life of a child, but your child will know other children being sponsored by people here at Connect! This is unlike anything I’ve ever heard of in “the business” of child sponsorship!
With your help, a child in our village on the north coast of the Dominican Republic can receive nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance and lasting hope in Jesus Christ.
I encourage you to prayerfully consider sponsoring a child through our partnership with OCM. Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ and change the world together!
Sponsorship through One Child Matters connects caring individuals with children in poverty, to provide them the resources and opportunities they need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research proves that one-to-one child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through sponsorship—power that changes both lives!
Children will have the opportunity to learn about God, His purpose for their life, and hope for the future.
Children get help with their studies and are taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, numeracy, and other life skills.
The child development center provides nutritious food and supplements. Children also have access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Children are encouraged to socialize with others and instructed in sports, music, and drama. These activities, with special outings, will help them make and keep friends.
One Child Matters can create a crucial foundation of support, but there's another important factor in a child's development - YOU! As a sponsor, you are an incredible source of encouragement. Your letters and prayers are powerful and effective. Your faithful support opens doors of opportunity - it is one of the best investments you can make in God's kingdom!Sponsor a Child Today
