Care Ministry

Monthly Update – OCTOBER 2021

As a church, this month we had the privilege of walking alongside some wonderful families as they navigated some difficult challenges around housing and food insecurity. Together we were able to help:

  • 4 families with food
  • 3 families with transportation for necessary medical care
  • 2 families with a safe place to stay while waiting for permanent housing (included a family with 5 kids)
  • 1 family transition into their own safe, affordable home
  • 1 family with utility arrears

Thank you to all who have offered practical resources, financial help, and your presence to come along side of these families who needed help!

Under The Tent Ministries continues to be present with people who are rough sleeping in our city. A big thank you to all those who have generously donated tents, hand warmers, food, and clothing, and your time to share your lives and the Love of God!

We are still trying to find housing for one of our SUN-Lite couples who has a baby on the way. We could really use the prayers of the church to see an appropriate place become available that will meet the needs of this family.

If you have questions or would like to share a need, please reach out to us.
Email us: care@ssc.church or call the church office at 506-458-8206.

We have big goals, can you help?

Please partner with us in caring for our city by making a donation to our Care Ministry. You can give by sending an Interac E-transfer to etransfer@ssc.church and designating the gift is for the ‘Care Ministry’, or donate using a credit card by clicking here. Visit our Giving page for information on other ways to give.

Due to the growing and extensive need in our city, we re-assessed our goals at the end of June 2021, and determined that we would like to raise an additional $20,000 for Care Ministry by the end of the year.  Your giving will enable us to continue to minister to those in our community who suffer from lack of housing and the effects of poverty.

Thus far, as of November 2nd, we have raised $16,050 towards our target of $20,000. Thank you so much for being a part of showing God’s love to precious people in our city and engaging in effective long term solutions to ending homelessness!

Your giving enables us take down the mountain of homelessness in our city and bring needed relief to those who suffer in our city.  Thank you!!

Why We Care…
Being the Best Church For the City

We believe that God has called us to address the needs of those in our city who suffer from the effects of poverty and are lacking the most basic of human needs, such as, a safe affordable place to call home, and sufficient food to meet their needs.

Showing the tangible love of God through acts of practical care is:

  • A command with blessing (Isaiah 58:6-10)
  • A beautiful display of the Kingdom of God at work in our city (Luke 10:25-37)
  • An act of worship to the King of Kings (Matt 25:31-40)

Your engagement through prayer, service, and financial giving is enabling us to passionately follow the heart of God as we care for each other and bring His Kingdom to the streets of Fredericton by loving our neighbours.
