May Missions is Pentecost Offering
The Pentecost Offering is devoted to ministries that support our young people during their “first third of life,” the time from childhood through young adulthood. Give to the Pentecost Offering, and you help provide opportunities for our young people to forge a deep and lasting faith on which to grow and build their lives.
Kenya Children’s Fund
We can’t change the whole world but we can change one child’s world.
SFPC participates in the sponsorship of children so may they have the opportunity to attend The Kinyago-Dandora Schools located in the slums of Nairobi in Kenya, East Africa. Africa slums are not child-friendly. Playing hide and seek with disease, malnutrition, crime and drug abuse, young children are robbed of the joys of childhood. In 1987, the Kenya Children’s Fund (KCF) was started by John & Barbara Schwartz. A non-profit Christian organization that seeks to transform lives of the Kenya impoverished children by providing education, nutrition and medical care in a moral and spiritual environment.
In addition, we provide support to other organizations:
- Tools of Hope & Blanket

- One Great Hour of Sharing
