Mission Around the World - Brazil
With the blessing of the National Baptist Convention of Brazil, Corenne (Garrison) and Philip Smith minister to children who are part of a residential program that rescues homeless street children and youth ranging in age from 8 to 18. In Brazil, poor youth often choose life on the streets to escape the poverty of the slums and, more often, to escape abusive families. On the streets, they are exposed to HIV/AIDS, malnutrition, child prostitution, substance abuse, and violence. This program provides guidance, education, and training for future employment. All students have completed a paid internship and are employed before they leave the program. Corenne counsels mainly with the older children, working with them on life skills so that they can eventually transition away from a boarding school to independent living. Corenne also serves as a surrogate mother to many of the children, sharing with them the love of Jesus. After experiencing day-to-day living in a safe, caring Christian environment, most of these children make decisions to follow Christ. Philip Smith is the president and CEO of the residential program, Hope Unlimited for Children, which was founded in 1991. Philip is serving in Brazil in a joint appointment by International Ministries and Hope Unlimited International. Language used for ministry: Portuguese.
The Birthday Program!
Pastor Sandi Perl has asked us if we would like to partner with Branchport UMC in the Birthday Program. Donations of cake mixes, frostings and sprinkles are requested to give those children whose parents are on limited incomes, the chance to be able to celebrate their birthdays like “the other kids”. Watch for sales and stock up if you can.
We are glad you’ve joined us!
We hope you’ll have a rich experience as we celebrate our faith and praise God together.
If you are a guest here today, in the pew in front of you, you will find a Guest Information card. We would like to get to know you better, please take a moment to fill it out and place it in the offering plate.
You are invited to bring your children to the nursery during the service for a safe and Christian environment so that you may more fully experience worship.
For your convenience hearing devices are available. Please see an usher for assistance
