Bags of Hope LKN
Bags of Hope LKN seeks to bring hope to CMS students by providing weekend food provisions to school children who experience food insecurity. Mosaic is a partner church with BoHLKN, with our focus on serving Winding Springs Elementary School (WSE). In Mecklenburg County, 35% of households with kids face food insecurity. When school is closed many of the students go hungry; a lack of adequate food leads to poor academic performance. We can help change that!
How can you make a difference?
Winding Springs Elementary School
Winding Springs Elementary School is a Title 1 school with a 97% poverty level. We support WSE not only through Bags of Hope, but also through various opportunities such as Thanksgiving baskets for families in need and sponsoring the annual Curriculum Night Family Dinner.
Have you ever wanted to help someone in need but found yourself with nothing to offer? Stock your car with pre-packed bags containing items that address basic human needs such as hunger, hygiene, and clothing accessories. Check out this list for suggested donations to bring to Mosaic, or to make your own packs!
House Upon The Rock Ministries
House Upon The Rock Ministries in the Dominican Republic is committed to foster growth of the materially poor, both physically and spiritually, through a medical clinic, construction ministry, school sponsorship programs, and other way of interacting personally with the people of the village where they serve.
To be a voice of hope, we work with this ministry in three ways:
The Dominican Republic requires that all children attend school until the eighth grade. Public schools are available; however, the government only provides a building and teacher; they are not required to provide materials or books. There are private schools that provide a higher level of education and more opportunities for continuing on to university. With a degree, a student not only becomes self-supporting, they can also support their parents and help their siblings with their education. A good education is one of the best ways to change the future of an entire family and help them to rise above poverty. There are over 100 students currently being sponsored, and another 100 students that are on the waitlist.
Mission Trips – We have been sending teams yearly since 2010. We invite you to spend a week sharing your faith, showing love and spreading hope with us in the Dominican Republic. Check back for details about future trips.
Three Kings Day Shoeboxes
Each November, we collect shoeboxes for children in the community for Dia de Reyes (All Kings Day), the day of celebration for Christmas in the Dominican Republic. This is the day when children receive gifts, and celebrate the Three Kings bringing gifts to baby Jesus.
