Dorcas (Benevolence) Ministry

Dorcas

We have always been committed to “Ministry First” and we have seen God bless this focus. Our Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Community Life Groups, various discipleship programs, Spiritual Emphasis Campaigns, and many other things have seen our ‘internal’ ministry, to those who attend the Church enable us to grow in Christlikeness.

Through Dorcas Ministry, we reach out to the underprivileged and vulnerable in our society with God’s love. In addition to sharing the word of God, we give more than 65 families food, clothes and other donated items every Thursday. We also visit homes of the needy families and those in crises to pray and encourage them as well as provide food for them. We do give emergency relief to those in crisis. Through this support we help pay house rents, pay medical bills, provide transport to deserving vulnerable persons and families.

Beyond the one time support we offer long term support (on case by case basis) the terminally ill persons and their families, orphans and vulnerable children, or provide a long term solution to their special needs.

We have the following programs in the Dorcas Ministry:

  1. Dorcas Service
  2. Emergency Relief
  3. Community Visitations
  4. Adopt-A-Granny
  5. Long term support for the terminally ill and orphans
  6. Projects geared towards providing long term solutions to needs affecting vulnerable persons and families.
  7. Christmas Gift Packs
