The 2018 God’s Heart for the World Offering will be received in all gatherings on Sunday, November 4. You can also give online anytime.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 to bring trauma-impacted people wholeness through the healing power of Jesus.
As people who have the hope of Christ, we want to join Jesus in the redeeming work He’s doing. One way we do that together each year is through the God’s Heart for the World offering. This year we look to bring healing into lives of two vulnerable populations God calls us to reach – the orphan and the immigrant. Whether in our neighborhood or around the world, both groups have suffered trauma. However, the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18).
Funds raised will go toward:
Our local orphans on the Peninsula are foster children. Giving to this offering provides a fund for the special needs of individuals and families in this group. A recently created ministry, PCC’s Radiant Youth, brings mentoring, education, and community to foster youth before they age out of the system.
Malawi Children’s Mission provides hope for over 150 orphans in extreme poverty. MCM is making a difference by building a Vocational Training Center while will prepare teens for jobs in employable trades.
Redwood City has historically been a safe haven for those fleeing war and drug town communities in Central America; however, political and economic changes have removed the safety net, and many local immigrants who are eligible for a pathway to legal status find the process overcomplicated and expensive. We are partnering Covenant World Relief to create a local Legal Immigration Center where Christ followers who are trained in immigration law can walk this path alongside immigrants.
Political, physical, and economic conflict chase African and Middle Easterners from their homes. PCC’s partnership in southern Spain with Tarsus Bethel and Pastor Pedro opens doors for new relationships with local churches and engagement with the refugee community, including expanding an African refugee soccer league, empowering entrepreneurs, and building playgrounds where believers can connect with least reached peoples.
