Concordia has served children and families in Tijuana, Mexico since 1998! This spring you have an opportunity to bless children on a Day of the Child event which will be Saturday, April 25th. Our partners in ministry, Mil Generaciones, show what the love of God looks like all year around and teach families about Jesus in the poor outskirts of the city.
You can serve by praying for God to bless and multiply our efforts there on the day of the event and throughout the year. You can serve by collecting supplies needed by families in Tijuana (see below a list of items). At church, there is a large yellow barrel for those items. You can support by helping organize the packing parties that are happening on Sunday, March 15 and April 3rd (at the community Movie Night). Or, maybe you will be part of the team that will travel to Tijuana to serve! HERE is a sign up form.
If you have questions, ask Melissa Salomon (firstname.lastname@example.org) via email or on Sunday.
