March is our Support Month for the Belarus Baby Orphanage.  This year we collected $3,947!  This helped send 25 children to camp and allowed for other needs of the Orphanage.  Thank you to everyone providing support!   

"Called to be the presence of Christ in our community"

First Christian Church of Downers Grove


The orphanage has 135 orphans under the age of 4.  The Isle of Hope camp provides a wonderful summer camp for the children bringing outdoor activities and an opportunity to learn the Gospel.  A child can be sent to the 10 day camp for as little as $80.  These children are much in need having been  affected by the long-term aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear accident in 1986.
