Partner with us to open nightlight at Sarnia -OPENING SOON!!
“IT IS A LOT OF LITTLE STEPS THAT LEADS TO THE GIANT LEAP”
By the mercies of God and through your generous support, we have taken a big leap of launching a new location at Sarnia this year. Our aim is to help every lonely person to find meaningful relationships and nurture them over time through our weekly programs. We strive to create an ambience that’s secure and providing warmth to their souls. Our beneficiaries are able to build a real bonds and connections beyond their walls of houses. We are thankful for the local community and the churches who help us! We are gearing up to launch nightlight to bring light and warmth to the community of Sarnia. We reach out to anyone who knocks at our door and YOU enable us to keep it always open!
We read about Jesus’s heart in the Gospels, as how he was compassionate to the needy and poor. He strived to bring the light of the good news of His kingdom in this dark world. In Acts (10:38) we read that Jesus went about doing ‘good’. Acts (1:8) tells “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Our first steps working for the kingdom starts with our doorstep, neighbors and the needy people in our own community. How much have we forgotten the lonely ones around us, residing in our community in the pursuit of helping people miles away!! nightlight gives Christians this precious opportunity of doing mission work in their own city.
In order to accomplish this, we’re launching our new fundraising campaign, “Serving Jesus, One cup at a Time.”
In Matthew 25:31-46, we read the parable of the sheep and the goats. Jesus congratulates the faithful for their practical kindness to those in distress saying, “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” As we are compassionate towards the poor, the needy, the lonely and the marginalized, we are faithfully serving Christ who identifies with them. That’s why we can speak about serving Jesus one cup at a time.
How the Campagin works:
If you believe in what nightlight is doing and would like to partner with us financially, we ask that you consider making a monthly contribution. While we appreciate and will always accept one-time donations, regular monthly donations help regulate our cash-flow and to plan for the future. For this campaign, we’re tying cash donations to what nightlight does, serving cups of Coffee
Four easy ways to give:
You can make a monthly donation of
a urn of coffee ($125/month),
a pot of coffee ($75/month),
Coffee refills in a travel mug ($25/month),
several cups of coffee ($10/month)
or any combination of these donations.
Mix and Match:
If you wanted to sponsor $50 a month, you could give 5 cups or 2 pots of coffee. When you go to the page at Canada helps to make your donation, let us know in the field what units you’d like to sponsor.
