Shine Offering 2022
Our world is asking for help…
we’re answering that call.
As we looked ahead to 2022 we felt that we as Fountain Springs were called to shine bright again but it was time to get hands-on. God is calling us to some amazing things in the area we call COMPASSION this year. Maybe you call it “Outreach” or “Missions” but the meaning is the same – we want to work together to meet practical and physical needs in our community and around the world.
We invited you to come together with us to do just that and partner financially with that goal.
We reached our goal of $200,000 and God did some amazing things in 2022!
What are some ways we made an impact?
- LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR WEEK – Thanks to SHINE 22, we were able to do even more with Love Your Neighbor this year!
576 Unique Volunteers
336 Hours on Sites
99 Project Sites
114 Unique Projects Completed- many of those were at area schools – and we are thankful for the way God continues to open doors.
- KIDS IN CRISIS MINISTRY || The Fountain Springs Church Foster Care Supply Closet at Love Inc launched community-wide on June 1! We currently serve 26 families from Fountain Springs, but have been able to partner with dozens of other kinship and foster families and churches throughout the region to support them as they serve children. We serve these families with essential clothing items, meals, home repairs, childcare, school supplies and more!
- SATURDAY SERVE || We have seen a big increase in the amount of volunteers we have in 2022. We were able to serve with local schools to help them get ready for the upcoming school year, as well as local non-profit organizations! We saw people of all ages investing in their city.
What else did we do? It's a long list but here are a few...
