Join Team Temple Baptist as we walk to end hunger!
Did you know that 795 million people worldwide do not have enough food to lead a healthy and active life? Did you know that 1 million children under the age of 5 die each year worldwide because of malnutrition? Did you know that 1 in 4 children in the state of North Carolina are considered “food insecure” (have no idea where there next meal will come from or when)? Would you like to help us do something about it?
On Sunday, April 2, 23 members of Team Temple Baptist participated in the CROP Hunger walk. We would like to thank everyone who supported Team Temple Baptist with prayers and with financial offerings, as we exceeded our goal and raised almost $2800 in the fight to end hunger in our community and around the world. 75% of your donation will go to Church World Service as they work to end hunger worldwide. 25% of your donation will stay here in Durham County to support 12 local agencies that are fighting hunger .
The purpose of this team is to help people of all ages find a place of service in the name of Christ. Activities include local, state, national and global ministry initiatives including one mission trip per year outside the Durham area. The team manages both church budgeted money and special mission offerings.
