“Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” —Matthew 18:19 For the prayer of agreement to work, there must be two of you. And you have to be on earth. That fits all of us! I have to remind myself not to put any limitations on Matthew 18:19! The prayer of agreement will work because it is God’s Word period! The Greek word for “agree” in this verse is sumphoneo. It means to agree together, to make a bargain, or to come to an agreement. It is the Greek word from which the wo ..read more

John 15:1-8 (NIV)“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. Going through the pruning process can be painful. It is with a broken heart that the board of directors have decided to sell the Village Thrift Shop in Pemberton Borough. There are a few reasons: 1. The Christian Caring Center lost 2 big grants at no fault of our doing. Donations have also been down due to inflation and the CCC 2024 budget is in a large deficit. 2. The Shop and apartmen ..read more

Psalm 89:26-28 “And he will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God and the Rock of my salvation. I will make him my firstborn son, the mightiest king on earth. I will love him and be kind to him forever; my covenant with him will never end.” June is Father’s Day and I had the best earthly father that anybody could want. I believe that is one of the reasons it is so easy for me to accept the love, guidance, and discipline of my heavenly Father. But what if you didn’t have a good earthly father or something happened to your father. No statistic is more troubling than this: almost 40% of all ..read more

This is such a basic need that Jesus taught us to pray for in the “Lord’s Prayer”.First, we are acknowledging that God is our sustainer and provider.We must trust God daily to provide what He knows we need.Today more than ever our families, seniors and homeless are facing extreme needs when it comes to daily food.There are a lot of factors that enter into their unique situations.Some are working, but inflation is eating away their money, especially for food, rents and transportation (like everyone else is witnessing today).Some are on fixed incomes or have no income.This leads them to come to ..read more

Philippians 4:9

“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Our world has a surplus of displaced people; men, women and children. Often we do not make life easy for widows or single parents. I believe the main reason is due to the many and long lasting needs and some of their attitudes, moods and often depression. The things that we see and hear in the Word of God and through the different teachers He has sent to guide us tell us what we are to apply in our daily lives. We don’t just learn about God so we can sit on the ..read more

If living in the woods or under our storage trailer, if seniors or children going hungry were acceptable; then the Christian Caring Center would not have existed. But you see God called the prophet Isaiah to say in chapter 58:10 “And if you offer yourself to the hungry And satisfy the need of the afflicted, Then your light will rise in darkness, And your gloom will become like midday. The Christian Caring Center serves as a refuge to all homeless and low-income people in need. Clients can access our Outreach Center for a place to shower and to receive food, clothing, breakfast, and a hot cook ..read more

Matthew 8:20 “...Foxes have dens and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” This was Jesus’s response to a scribe that wanted to follow Jesus and become a disciple. Jesus, our Lord, was functionally homeless. He and His disciples stayed in the homes of those who would take them in. At the Christian Caring Center we call this couch surfing. When a person or family becomes homeless, at first people are usually sympathetic and let them couch surf, but that is only for a certain time. Jesus could identify with the homeless in His ministry. He was born in a s ..read more

Psalm 139:13-14 ”For you formed my inward parts: you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works.” We are entering into a season of thankfulness looking forward to Thanksgiving. Many people that are suffering from their past and present circumstances find it hard to thankful. Families dealing with food insecurity, unemployment, children born into poverty, seniors dealing with inflation on a fixed income, medical problems and even death of a loved one or homelessness, the mentally ill, the addicted. What changes that m ..read more

Ruth 1:16 Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.” One of the most important and cherished jobs I have had in my life is being a mother, a foster mother, an adoptive mother and a mother-in-law.Ruth is one of the greatest examples of commitment, honor and love that I have seen.There are a few stories in the Bible of several people that are woven together so closely that they are almost inseparable.We know more about their relationship than we know about them a ..read more

Roman 8:24-25 “For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” The Christian Caring Center became an affiliate of the National Bridge of Hope Program 15 years ago. Our vision is to prevent and end homelessness for families with children across the United States and Canada by calling churches into action. A unique model: a three-way partnership among families facing homelessness, Church-based Neighboring Volunteers trained to provide practical support and encouragement, and p ..read more
