Each summer Hughson plans several ministries for the children of our neighbourhood and church which takes special funding to accomplish. Often supporters from outside our congregation help us reach these goals and we want to make these projects known to others who may choose to support them as projects over and above their regular tithes and offerings.
Summer Staff Project
We hire 8 students for 7 weeks in the summer who help us with 14 weeks of soccer, 4 weeks of Crosstrainers day camps and our overnight week at Camp Widjiitiwin for about 80 campers. We would like to raise $15,000 to cover this project.
We have a maximum of 50 campers each week who come for all-day fun centered around sharing the gospel. it costs about $110 per camper, of which we ask the camper to pay $35. We're looking for sponsors for the remaining portion of this cost.
Camp Widjitiwin Project
We are thankful for our partnership with Muskoka Bible Centre and how they facilitate a great week in the north for our urban-based kids where we can share God's love in this unique setting. We are looking for $15,000 in sponsorships to help these children get to camp.
North End Soccer League Project
We gather about 275 children every Tuesday during the summer for a fun, skill-building league, and share our faith each week at the half-time break. We have a $55 registration fee, but sponsor many of the children who can't cover that. The actual cost per child is about $100. We are praying for about $10,000 in additional funding for soccer.
Thank you for prayerfully considering if you would take on one of these projects, or any part of one. Click here for information on how to give to Hughson Street Baptist Church
