Happy Boy Gets a Tricycle!

July 19, 2017

In the course of a day at Compassion Network we receive all sorts of items from kind donors.  Recently, a generous couple donated a Radio Flyer tricycle.  It so happens that a grandma, her daughter and grandson walked by.  The grandson was riding an old beat-up Radio Flyer.  Our office manager called out to the family and asked if the boy would like the new tricycle, which was a perfect fit for him.  The grandma said that they were literally just talking about getting him a new tricycle.  The beaming smile on the boy’s face was priceless.

The time for going back to school is almost upon us and we are putting the call out for backpacks!  Last year, we helped distribute over 800 packs filled with school supplies to families in need.  The churches in our network were able to draw upon their resources and meet this critical demand.  If you or your church is looking for a place to donate school supplies or backpacks, please give us a call!

Youth at Work

July 5, 2017

This week we want to say thank you to all the young volunteers that serve here at Compassion Network. Some come just for the summer and others have been serving for many years. Many people think volunteerism is something you do when you are retired or as a requirement for school credit; however, the majority of our young volunteers serve here because they want to make a difference!

If you want to join our youthful team, bring on the energy!

Soup Talk!

June 28, 2017

For over three years, one of our pastors from Bridges Community Church has conducted Soup Talk, a weekly luncheon of homemade soup and McDonalds sandwiches that is held here at the Compassion Network. The purpose is to invite homeless clients to a meal and share a biblical devotional with practical application and lots of discussion… hence the reason we call it Soup Talk.
 
The tradition continues and we have had as many as 20-25 people choose to come to enjoy good food and fellowship. People who may not ever go to a church can find a seat at the table where they can ask questions, share life experiences, and receive hope. 
 
Our pastor takes a break during the summer months but we have been blessed to have guest facilitators from nine of our partnering churches to cover the summer. We want to thank each of them for helping us keep the momentum going.

We want to thank all the representatives from our churches that came in for Liaison Training. It was great to see you and hear what is going on in your churches and how we all work together to serve our communities in the Name of Jesus! The interaction and feedback we received were incredible. We can’t do what we do without all the work you are doing!
