15,000 children to be reached
A deep and protracted recession continues to take its toll on Americans, but the pain is especially difficult for inner city families, many of whom have little to fall back on. Significantly, some of these people have fallen through the cracks spiritually and need to hear that God loves them.
Here’s Life Inner City
Campus Crusade for Christ is doing something special for inner city children in thirteen cities across the United States this Easter. Its urban ministry—Here’s Life Inner City—is busy preparing 15,000 Easter bags to give out to children this Easter. Working with partner ministries, “Here’s Life” will go door to door in some of the toughest neighborhoods in a bid to reach affected children.
“I’ve seen the children’s faces light up as they encounter the story of Easter and experience God’s love-in many cases for the very first time,” said Ted Gandy, national director of Here’s Life Inner City.
Here’s Life is looking for sponsors to help underwrite the cost of the project by sponsoring an Easter bag. Every bag will contain special treasures for children including crayons, candy, toy, a colorful beaded bracelet that explains the plan of salvation and a Bible story activity booklet. If you are interested in sponsoring an Easter bag, please visit www.HLIC.org.
Partner Churches & Ministries
Here’s Life Inner City has been actively working with more than a thousand partner churches and organizations to respond to what they see to be a growing epidemic of poverty and despair in inner cities across the United States. Food and other basic necessities are provided to the poor along with life skills, career development and a youth development programs.
This year’s outreach will bring Easter bags to inner-city kids in Atlanta; Bakersfield, Calif.; Little Rock, Ark.; Chicago; Denver; Detroit; Jacksonville, Fla.; Los Angeles; Milwaukee; Minneapolis/St. Paul; New York; Orlando, Fla.; and Seattle.
Please keep this effort in your prayers, a wonderful opportunity to share the message of salvation with youngsters and their families.
