Dear College Park,
Each year of ministry is a gift from God, and 2018 was a year of amazing kingdom impact.
I’m excited for you to hear just a few stories of how God has been at work in and through College Park Church in the last year. Your generosity makes ministry possible, and there is much to celebrate:
It’s an honor to serve as your pastor! Together with you, I’m joyfully anticipating God’s continued work in 2019. Thank you for being part of igniting a passion to follow Jesus in Indianapolis, the surrounding area, and around the world.
Since the Syrian civil war officially began in March 2011, millions of Syrians have fled to Lebanon and received aid from the faith-based nonprofit, Heart for Lebanon. After partnering with Heart for Lebanon in 2015, we felt God leading us to do so again in 2018.
Because of your generosity, we gave $1,503,489 toward the completion of Heart for Lebanon's Hope Ministry Center in the Bekaa Valley. Once completed, the Hope Ministry Center will hold a 250-seat chapel, classrooms, administrative area, and additional space for medical screenings and resource distribution. While construction is still underway, the funds are now secured, and the center is already in operation. According to CEO and Founder of Heart for Lebanon, the center was packed full for its first service of 2019. We praise God for how he is working in and through our brothers and sisters in the Middle East; and we're grateful that because you give, we get to be a part of it.
