Share the Love of Christ by Helping a Child in Need

Living Faith partners with ABBA Ministries every August to give kids in the Hempstead School District new backpacks. This sends kids back to school with the tools they need to start the school year off right! Simply buy a backpack for a child or a teen, and drop if off at a Sunday Service. You are welcome to fill the backpack with supplies if you choose! In addition to school supplies, you may put such items as Children’s Bibles or other good literature for children in the backpacks. Younger kids especially enjoy receiving Marvel/Super heroes backpacks! 
*** Donations must be brought to the church atrium or Ministry Center office by 10:00am on August 21, 2022.
Who is ABBA Leadership?

ABBA Leadership is a not-for-profit, faith-based organization that LFCC supports. Located in Hempstead, they seek to help those in their community who have been negatively affected by drugs, crime, violence, gangs, and poverty. Using Biblical principles and their knowledge of the criminal justice system, ABBA Leadership boldly shares the Gospel of Christ as they advocate to improve the lives of people in jail, in homeless shelters, in drugs and alcohol programs, and on the streets.
