Almsgiving for Lent

Emmanuel Children’s Home

Almsgiving is the act of giving to those in need as a tangible expression of Christian love. This year the focus of our giving is going toward the Emmanuel Children’s Home in Juarez, Mexico.  Emmanuel Children’s Home is an oasis of hope in one of the world’s most dangerous cities.  They provide a loving, safe, and God-centered home for some of Juarez’s most vulnerable children.

3 Ways You Can Give

One-Time Gift: 

After losing their building to a fire in 2020, Emmanuel Children’s Home is building a new school! Click HERE to donate online. For more information about the home, go to www.emmanueljuarez.org

Sponsor a Child: 

$45.00 / month – Sponsor Now

Not only will you provide for a child’s needs, but you will be able to interact with your child and develop a real relationship that will bless both you and the child. Just $45 a month joins you with 5 other sponsors to provide for his or her care in the Children’s Home.

You may consider giving more to help with the complete cost of their care in the home ($270 a month per child) and their educational costs in the school ($100 a month per child).
