Redistribute started as an annual tradition in which our congregation is encouraged to engage in the restoration of the world through sacrificial giving to those in need. From Sunday, October 14th to Sunday, November 25th we are focusing our Redistribute efforts on two organizations that are offering hope to those who are in their own modern-day exile: Safe Families in Indianapolis and international partner Vision Nicaragua.

Let’s share our plenty…

Safe Families was chosen this year because our elders and many member of our congregation have felt a strong desire to take care of the orphans and widows.

Here is a little more about them:

Safe Families for Children hosts vulnerable children and creates extended family–like supports for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact.

Radical Hospitality
Compassion fueled by Mercy
Disruptive Generosity

Vision Nicaragua was chosen due to the recent violent protests in Nicaragua that have essentially turned the entire country upside down. Vision Nicaragua helps take care of the disadvantage and they need even more help now.

Here is a little more about them:

Vision Nicaragua has a sponsorship program in place that allows students to go to a local school and receive an education. Students are then able to move forward and get jobs outside of the sugar cane plantation. For the widows that have already lost their husbands, we have sponsorship set up to help them with the financial set-backs once their husbands have passed. And for the men that have the chronic kidney disease, we have them set-up to receive spiritual support, medical treatment, and the financial assistance needed to help them as they seek to provide for their families once they are let go from their job at the sugar cane plantation.
