Over 1,000 Urban Children receive School Supplies!!!

Thanks to generous donations from Christians and area churches, School Supplies were donated to over 1,000 urban youth. We are grateful to Bob Stine and Elim Ministries for networking with us and allowing us to greatly increase our annual ministry project. We were able to bless children in Ford Heights, Chicago Heights, Robbins, and Chicago including EVERY GRADE SCHOOL AND MIDDLE SCHOOL CHILD FROM FORD HEIGHTS.

We would also like to thank First Reformed Church of Lansing, Crete Church, Hillside Community Church, Calvary Church of Orland Park, the Agape Center, and the other area Churches and Christians who donated School Supplies.

We cosponsored a Back to School Rally in Roseland at Galilee Baptist Church and were able to bless Roseland Christian Ministries Homeless Shelter.

Children were excited, parents were grateful, urban ministers were empowered, and God was Glorified by this display of Christian Compassion.

Donate School Supplies for Urban Ministry



Please take a few minutes and view this video. Christ Cares is a 501c3 Christian non profit organization that believes the LOVE OF GOD needs to be both proclaimed and demonstrated!

The economic crisis has affected most of us here in America, however, the impact has been devistating in the urban areas. School is about to start in a few weeks and many families are struggling to get the needed school supplies. Christ Cares is collecting school supplies to help met this need and also as a paractical demonstration of God’s love. For over 30 years, our Director, Rev. Scott Reese has been an urban missionary. Please prayerfully consider making a difference and help us secure school supplies and also “share” this video with your friends.

A list of our needed supplies is also posted below.

Body of Christ works together in Ford Heights – weekly update 8/5/09

On July 25 BodyofChristCares.org partnered with a Christian men’s Bible Study to help empower Christ Temple #2 Church have a community outreach in Ford Heights, IL. Rev. Futrell is the pastor and has a big heart for the community. Pictured is Rich Van Til with Body of Christ Cares’ inflatible bouncer. Also pictured is a snow cone machine that we borrowed for this event, the Taste of Reconciliation, and also at the homeless shelter – We would love to have someone buy us a snow cone machine for us to share with the “Body of Christ” to empower groups to demonstrate God’s love in practical ways to their community

On July 26 we had our 7th annual Taste of Reconciliation We had about 550 attend and had an absolutely wonderful time! A special thank you to the Building Bridges Committee of Living Springs Community Church and all those that helped to make this event possible. Soon we will have a special post with pictures and video of this event.
