Advent Conspiracy 2018
For several years now, Lighthouse has spent the holiday season looking for ways to give a little extra, during what we refer to as Advent Conspiracy. Each year four groups/organizations in need are chosen. The church body is encouraged to save some of the money they would normally spend during the holiday season in order to make a special offering Lighthouse can then distribute to each of the chosen groups.
This year, prayerfully consider what you might be able to sacrifice in order to help us reach our goals.
Phantom Lake Elementary & Jubilee REACH
-Local community care-
Jubilee REACH and Phantom Lake Elementary School are standing in the gap by providing wrap-around services and funds for rent, medical bills and after-school programs.
GOAL: $20,000 ($10,000 to Jubilee REACH, $10,000 to PLES) to provide teaching and emergency resources for families in Bellevue.
Living Water International
-Drilling a Well in Kenya-
Worldwide, more than 840,000 die each year as a result of unsafe drinking-water, unhealthy sanitation and inadequate hygiene. The deaths of 360,000 children could be avoided each year if these risk factors were reduced.
GOAL: $20,000 to build wells that provide clean water in Kenya for about 400 people ($50/person).
Sunbeam Kids Bible Club
-Serving Children in Cambodia-
Sunbeam Kids was started by Jerry and Wilma Mishler, who wanted children in rural villages in Cambodia to know the love of Jesus. Volunteers travel by motorcycle to the most remote areas to teach the children about the Bible. Volunteers serve over 50,000 children a week.
Goal: $25,000 to provide teaching resources for the children at Sunbeam Kids Bible Club.
To a struggling woman or girl in countries like Kenya or Bangladesh, the sewing machines we’ll provide can be the doorway to a better life. A bicycle for a girl will allow her to be able to attend school and receive an education. Without the bicycle, girls are often forced to drop out of school.
GOAL: $20,000 to provide sewing machines for women and bicycles for young girls to attend school.
