As God is generous with us, we, too, are a generous people. Each month we focus on a particular mission which has been chosen by the congregation. Collenbrook United Church has been and continues to be incredibly generous and passionate about mission and outreach. The Mission of the Month (MOM) are local, national, and international charities offering new opportunities to serve God’s people and earth in new ways.
During 2017, Collenbrook collected and donated $34, 202.86 to our numerous Missions of the Month!
Check out this Powerpoint with more information about our numerous missions and the donations we raised for each one!
2018 – Missions
April: Philadelphia Futures
Philadelphia Futures is a nonprofit organization that provides Philadelphia’s low-income, first-generation-to-college students with the tools, resources and opportunities necessary for admission to and success in college. We transform lives by breaking down the barriers that have historically excluded low-income, first-generation-to-college students from achieving college success. The students Philadelphia Futures serves are provided with a comprehensive, time-tested array of programs designed to reduce the institutional, academic, social and financial barriers to college success.
March: Monthly Community Dinners
Every month, on the Third Thursday, Collenbrook United Church hosts it’s FREE Community Dinner to help feed families in need within our community. March’s Mission of the Month is focused on raising funds to go toward Collenbrook’s monthly community dinner ministry and will help to cover the costs of food and dinner supplies.
