PSALM 46 RELIEF FUND
In the Story of Jesus Christ feeding the 5,000, the disciples of Jesus asked Jesus to let the people go because it was getting dark, and the multitude was tired and hungry. Jesus replied with, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat,” Matthew 14:6 NIV. During these difficult times that we are facing due to the COVID-19 and its impact on people, the church is ready to listen to the words of Jesus and meet the needs of those who are facing financial hardship during this time. For that reason, THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COUNCIL OF CHURCHES (AACC), TOGETHER WITH LIGHTHOUSE CHURCH, have joined forces TO BE A LIGHT IN THE COMMUNITY and help those who need it the most. Serving mostly the African American and Hispanic populations, the reach of these churches has blessed the lives of a diverse group of families and individuals with not only Jesus’ Good News of Salvation, but with Food Pantries, After School Programs, School and Daycares, Financial Assistance to those most vulnerable, ministry to the homeless, community outreach programs, and much more
Through their services, our churches help a segment of the population of Madison that experiences the greatest food and housing insecurity and is chronically undereducated and underemployed. Less than 20% of adults in the African American and Hispanic community can work from home; most of them work in the service industry like restaurants, hotels, cleaning services, etc., which have been hit the hardest at this time. As a result, this group of people have been greatly affected by COVID-19 with a great number of them losing their jobs and at risk of losing their housing.
THAT IS WHY WE HAVE COME TOGETHER TO START A FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN, “PSALM 46 RELIEF FUND,” to assist families in our community that are facing financial hardship as a result of COVID-19.
All the funds raised will be divided among the Lighthouse Church and The AACC to speed the process of helping the families that need it the most. Both Lighthouse Church and The AACC have the infrastructure in place to be able to manage these funds and distribute them in a manner that is transparent, efficient, and wise.
