In Philippians 1:5 Paul used the phrase “partnership in the Gospel” to describe the way he and the church at Philippi collaborated in sharing God’s Good News. At Cornerstone, we are discovering the importance of partnership in the Kingdom of God. We want to be faithful to the Great Commission to make disciples of all peoples. For this to happen, we support other ministries locally, nationally, and globally.
This month, our spotlight is shining on the work of Seeds of Love and Hope International Society. Started in 2006 with a visit to bring much-needed school supplies and uniforms, SOLAHIS now organizes and runs a Children’s Centre in Medellin, Colombia. The centre provides a meal six days per week to neighbourhood children, plus medical and dental care, school supplies, and spiritual guidance. Additionally, children have access to a tutor, after-school activities, and a full-time pastor. The centre is funded through child sponsorships, donations, and fundraising activities. This year, the annual Benefit Gala, will take place on November 19.
