Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child

Since 1993, more than 100 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches and ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.

Citrus County Blessings

The Citrus County Blessings Program provides weekend meals for children on the federal school breakfast and lunch assisted-meals program. Many of these children would go without a meal from Friday until they return to school on Monday without the food provided by Citrus County Blessings.

First Baptist Church Inverness collects Peanut Butter and Jelly in plastic containers to be distributed to the children at Pleasant Grove, Inverness Primary, and Inverness Christian Academy! Your individual contributions mean so much to this worthwhile program. Not only are the children blessed, but we are all blessed to be part of the First Baptist Inverness family—God is so good, all the time.

Compassion International

Compassion International is an organization that provides support for children in foreign countries through child sponsors. They partner with local churches in those countries to help the children in their area. Compassion International provides an education, food, health support (such as immunizations and hygiene education), education for families, and more. Best of all, the lessons are faith based and these children learn about Jesus! As a church we have many areas of ministry, such as the deacon and youth ministry that sponsors a child through compassion as well as dozens of individual members who do as well. Also, through out the year we have raised money for water filtration systems to go to villages and towns who desperately need clean water. Your tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects a child living in poverty with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program.

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.
