When it comes to world missions, some ministry opportunities are layered with complexity and require some learning and reflection as we seek to engage them. ECC is looking into two particular issues: human trafficking and immigration. Here are ways that you can join us in that learning journey.
LEMOYNE PA, SHE’S SOMEBODY’S DAUGHTER
SSD is sharing the truth about sexual exploitation and the many forms it takes in our world today. Their goal is to shed light on the existence of human trafficking within our communities and to change the “sex work” narrative that perpetuates exploitative industries.
Volunteers regularly visit businesses within the commercial sex industry with home-cooked meals or gifts of honor, demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ. To find out more about this ministry, visit their website.
Lancaster PA, IMMERGE
Have you ever had questions about immigration? Have you found yourself wanting to reach out and share God’s love to the foreigners among us? Would you like to explore the various opportunities to be the hands and feet of Christ to immigrant neighbors?
IMMERGE fosters relationships between persons interested in loving those from other nations already living among us. Lancaster has been receiving a number of these refugees.
Training is provided to help introduce people to this ministry and to help learn the cultural differences for the multiple of nationalities arriving in the United States each year. There are a number of local volunteer opportunities available.
