What Is Project Moon?
Each year at SYC we seek to raise awareness, money and practical donations towards different organisations that are involved in various projects. Projects range from translating the Bible into a language for the first time, to providing towels and socks for the homeless. This has been a great way to encourage young people and leaders to give to local and global communities.
So, why Project Moon we hear you ask? Well, in the same way that the moon reflects the light of the sun, we too as Christians want to reflect the light of the Son (Jesus) to those around us. As Paul puts it in 2 Corinthians 3:18:
“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord.”
It is our heart through Project Moon to reflect God’s glory into these different organisations by giving through money, practical gifts and time. Over 9 years we have raised for various causes £18,875,17!
Project Moon – SYC 2019
This year we are delighted to again be teaming up with Home For Good, a charity working on the frontline of adoption and fostering, with a vision to find a home for every child who needs one. We love their heart and want to do all that we can to help them in their mission.
We’ll be supporting them in two ways:
Firstly, in providing care packages. We’ll be working with five local authorities they are working with to provide young people as they leave the care system with essential items that many of us take for granted. We’re asking you to bring a complete care package that includes; a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel and deodorant. All of these items are available in local Supermarkets and shops like Poundland for £1 each. That means you could help a young person as they leave care, with a toiletries pack for just £5!
Secondly, on the Wednesday night we will be taking up our annual offering with all proceeds going towards the work of Home For Good. As always, you will be able to give via cash, text, online or filling out a giving envelope.
Last year you provided 172 care packages, and raised £2,091.53. That is amazing, but let’s see if we can beat that this year!
