It would be a true blessing if members from the Christ Church Stellenbosch congregation would prayerfully consider getting more actively involved with the poor in a variety of ways.
The Displaced Persons Ministry is at the stage where growth is necessary and YOUR help is needed.
We are currently looking for helpers to serve tea and coffee on Thursday mornings, from 7:00-7:30.
This is a wonderful opportunity for those who may wish to get involved — to love the poor, to share in their lives, to support the downtrodden and oppressed and to support the DPM in restoring vital relationships in their lives.
For more information (or if you would like to serve in this ministry), you are invited to contact the church office.
