SPARROW MINISTRIES was formed by three families in early 2010 as a ministry of New Community Church in Wildwood, MO. We saw a need to bring awareness to our local body of Christ regarding the opportunity to support and care for orphans worldwide as well as families going through an adoptive process. Our prayer is to biblically minister to and support adoptive families. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our immediate goal is to raise money for Christian families willing to adopt and/or to meet the needs of orphans around the world. We offer Adoption Grants to Christian families who qualify. We have a variety of fundraisers throughout the year with the largest being our annual Holiday Gift Market held the first Saturday in November.
The Puebla Project: NEW BEGINNINGS
There are up to 1.6 million orphans or abandoned children in Mexico. We currently partner with Kevin and Andrea Bult, missionaries with Camino Global in Puebla, Mexico, as they seek to develop a Christ-centered home and community for orphans. The goal of New Beginnings is to nurture and provide for abandoned children by providing a safe, Christ-centered home that cares for their physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual needs. The focus will be on children who have been abandoned by their families, most of which are now under the care of inadequate and over-crowded government orphanages.
This project will spare 6-8 children from life in an institution and will gift them with loving foster parents, ready to share the love and hope of Christ.
Orphan care at home: Sparrow desires to bring awareness of the need for Respite Care Givers and Foster Families in St. Louis and surrounding counties and to establish Gospel-centered relationships within the foster community. We are partnering with Missouri Alliance for Children and Families (MACF) as a resource that can train in Respite Care and/or license for Foster Care. In addition, Sparrow has had the privilege of putting together toiletry bags for teens entering foster care as well as making Thanksgiving baskets of non-perishables for young adults in foster care in the Independent Living Program.
