October: NEW LIFE REFUGE
New Life Refuge is a place of specialized, long-term, therapeutic care where child sex trafficking survivors can heal and process through their trauma. Their trauma-informed care program provides a home of normalcy that includes loving house parents and daily family activities.
Sunday, October 3 is World Communion Day and the day that we take the Peace and Global Witness offering. Twenty-five percent of the collected offering stays with the church. This year we decided to donate our share to New Life Refuge, a ministry for underage girls and boys who are the victims of human trafficking.
IPC Mission Ministry humbly serves the following missions, as well as other fundraisers. You are invited to visit the websites below to learn more and witness ‘God’s work’ being carried out through these organizations. Our prayer is that you will be moved to honor God and enjoy the privilege of serving others.
