We need your support!
As you all well know, Church of the Messiah is a church that serves and cares for the least of these in our congregation which is made up of 60 % African American male under the age of 30. This is no easy feat since we are facing serious issues with our 130-year building (leaking and damaged roof, water damage to the entire basement and 130-year-old plumbing), as well as astronomical utility bills and operating expenses totaling well over $8,000 monthly, which we NEVER bring in. This is where we need your help. We are looking for at least 50 financial partners who are bold and committed enough to donate $100 a month (or more) FOR at least 1 YEAR!
Your monthly donation will help Messiah to continue providing programing and services that empower and improve our community. Listed below are just a few of the programs and services that we provide:
Church of the Messiah Housing with 213 units of housing in the Island view neighborhood.
Share Network is our employment office through Michigan Works.
F.I.R.E. Marching Band and Cheer Leading Team.
Messiah Empowerment Bike Shop- this a full line bike repair shop for the community.
Aim High Mentorship Program
Citizens United for Safety (C.U.F.S.)-Community Eyes and Ears.
Five Alive-Community Organizing for social issues.
