Greetings, CFP Partner!
Thanks to you, 2020 has been a successful year for Community Faith Partners (CFP). Your generous gifts towards the ministry of CFP has allowed us to launch two new programs, Saturday Night Prayer Calls and Let’s Talk Unity webinars. The Saturday Night Prayer Calls began in late March as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are thankful they have encouraged and uplifted more than 500 people from around the nation. Here’s what our prayer partners have said after the prayer calls. “I was in tears tonight as I felt such a strong presence of the Lord.” “I truly felt everyone was in the Spirit of God and on one accord.” “Every week, I come with a broken heart, and the CFP prayer puts all the pieces back together.” “I feel peaceful.”
These are just a few of the comments from those who pray with us each week. If space were available, I would fill this page with numerous thankful expressions for the prayer calls.
In June, we launched the phenomenally successful, Let’s Talk Unity webinars https://www.communityfaithpartners.org/videos that focused on racial justice and racial reconciliation in the Christian church. We also had our 2nd annual racial reconciliation seminar, Unity in the Body: Leaders Modeling Racial Justice.
Additionally, your help allows us to continue supporting the Tompkins County Jail through our Bibles and biblical literature distribution. We are also pleased to announce the completion of the Prayer Garden at the AME Zion Church in Ithaca, NY. This church is an integral part of the Black community in Tompkins County and our nation. Harriet Tubman herself attended it on her way north with runaway slaves. One of our most maturing visions is Willow Glen Christian School (WGCS), currently Covenant Love Christian School. This year, WGCS began its inaugural year for 9th graders enabling Tompkins County youth to have an opportunity to be a part of a Christ-centered educational environment.
As we reflect on the end of a healthy year in ministry, despite the pandemic, we look forward to an even more successful 2021. Our 2020 Year-End Campaign allows us to continue our current programming and connect with even more churches. Please help us continue to impact Tompkins County and the nation.
Help us reach our goal of $50,000. Will you give a one-time tax-deductible gift of $100, $250 or $500? Or a $25, $50, or $75 monthly gift for 2021? Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of our friends and neighbors in Tompkins County and beyond.
