March is our Support Month for the Belarus Baby Orphanage.  Last 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!   

First Christian Church also Partners with these Ministries:

  • PADS - We volunteer our time and food for the DuPage County PADS program to shelter and feed some of the homeless in our area

  • Walk-in Ministry of Hope Downers Grove

  • Family Shelter

  • FISH

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.
