Be a Child Champion!
God has called us to care for poor and vulnerable children and to share God’s truth and grace with them. This is exactly what the ministry of OneChild does.
OneChild brings hope and life to thousands of children around the world. God has clearly brought us together with OneChild to break the cycle of poverty by sponsoring children.
I invite each of you to sponsor a child. With your sponsorship, a child will receive nutritional support, medical aid, educational assistance, and most important, will learn God loves him or her and has a purpose for his or her life. Sponsorship makes a lasting difference for a child and even his or her family — and positively affects future generations!
One of the best parts of sponsorship is that it’s a personal relationship. You exchange letters and pictures, and you are a huge part in creating a new, hope-filled life for your child!
Let’s continue to accomplish vastly more together than any of us could ever do alone and build God’s Kingdom together, one child at a time!
In Jesus’ name,
Lead Pastor, Cedar Rapids First
Children’s Best Hope: A Strong Church
Our vision for the church is global: The body of Christ growing, strong, united. If the church is strong in a poverty-stricken community, we know that we can effectively help the children living there. A strong local church partner is one of our prerequisites for ministry. And that ministry isn’t possible without the support of the church in the U.S.
We’re building a
community of hope.
OneChild sponsors provide encouragement, love and support to children living in poverty. And they empower an entire community of caring individuals who walk alongside those children as they grow. Through that community, sponsorship provides the resources and opportunities children need to rise above their circumstances and reach their potential in Christ. In fact, recent research demonstrates that child sponsorship is one of the most effective ways to combat global poverty. There’s real power in one person reaching out to one child through community—power that changes both lives!
Sponsorship with OneChild helps children grow in…
Your child has the opportunity to learn about God and His purpose for their life.
Your child gets help with their studies and is taught problem-solving, leadership, literacy, and life skills.
Your child is provided nutritious food and supplements and has access to medical check-ups and immunizations to fight common diseases.
Your child is encouraged to socialize with others and receives instruction in sports, music, and drama.
WHERE WE SERVE
OneChild sponsors empower the loving community that surrounds each child in our care. You can provide education, medical care, spiritual support, and hope to a child in desperate need.
We are accountable to the children we serve AND to our donors.
Our accountability to our donors is one of our highest priorities. Our goal is to use the funds entrusted to us as wise stewards. To do this requires continued monitoring of our fund distribution. OneChild is also a member in good standing with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
