At the beginning of this year our board chair, Lonnie Bartel, presented in person a grant to Unity God of Church in Homestead, Florida.
Our last grant for $40,000 went to a Haitian Mennonite church in Homestead, Florida. Unity church is an active congregation of 45 members, many of whom are newcomers from Haiti. They have two services each Sunday – morning and evening - and have services on Monday and Friday evenings. In their outreach ministry, they seek to serve needs in their community, especially those of immigrants in their part of south Florida.
This grant will go toward their ability to purchase a larger building. They hope that having the additional space will expand their outreach in the community.
