School Pal-Paks

Each year, our NMI Council collects School Pal-Paks. 

School Pal-Paks provide students in Nazarene primary schools with the supplies they need to facilitate learning, such as pencils, scissors, etc. The Church of the Nazarene operates numerous primary schools around the world, providing quality education for children. Unfortunately, children around the world often do not have the supplies needed for school. In countries with economic challenges, families cannot afford to purchase supplies, or siblings are often required
to share the supplies. In response to the need, Nazarene Missions International partnered with Nazarene Compassionate Ministries, Inc. (NCM, Inc.) to provide School Pal-Paks.

At Anderson First Church, we will collect School Pal-Paks the month of August. This will give you all summer to watch for the best prices! Make sure you only include exactly what is on the list and place in a gallon size bag.  This is especially important with international shipping. During the month of August there will be totes in the foyer for you to place them into. Thank you so much for making a difference in the lives of students around the world!

Crisis Care Kits

Crisis Care Kits are made by Nazarene volunteers and are a tangible way that people can get involved in the disaster response process.  Thousands of Crisis Care Kits are made, stored, and distributed globally each year as needs inevitably arise around the world.

At Anderson First Church, we will be collecting Crisis Care Kits the month of January, 2022. We are providing the shopping list so that you may keep your eye out for deals throughout the year! Each Crisis Care Kits will need to be placed in a 2-gallon ziplock bag and we will provide those in January. There will be totes in the foyer for collection the month of January.

Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus!

Every week in our prayer requests in the worship folder you will see Pastor Firas’ name there. Pastor Firas is the pastor of our sister church in Dohuk, Iraq. In 2007, Anderson First Church took on a major commitment to adopt a church in Iraq. This support continues today, having a tremendous impact in one of the most troubled parts of the world. Please continue to keep Pastor Firas’ and his ministry in Iraq in your prayers. Thank you for making a difference around the world!
