In 2005 EastLake Church began our partnership with Bright Hope School and Orphanage in Uganda. Over the past 14 years they have grown and we have continued to feel God’s call to step up and meet their increasing needs as they grew. It is time to adapt and meet the needs of growth and change once again! Beginning July 27th, we will be working across our network on increasing our $30 a month per child sponsorships by 400 sponsors! This will provide the funds needed to continue supporting what we already do out of our general budget, expand our ability to complete necessary projects at the school site and birth our vision for a flourishing church ministry on the ground in Uganda.
We want to invite you to Experience Uganda at our Chula Vista Church! Beginning July 27th and lasting for 4 weeks, we will have an onsite audio experience with insight into life in Africa as well as how we can partner in prayer for continued change within Uganda. We will have a sponsorship tent set up to answer all of your questions and help you set up your sponsorship gift. In addition to weekend services, we will have this Experience up during our ECON leadership conference, August 9th and 10th.
Join us during the weekend services, join in prayer for our goals and for Africa, and come and visit Bright Hope School through this virtual experience 8000 miles away!
If you would like to update your sponsorship before visiting on the weekend click the Get Involved tab which will lead you to the sponsorship option. We are incredibly grateful for each of our partners. We firmly believe that by sponsoring a child two stories will be changed today. You are making a huge impact on a life thousands of miles away but you are also changing your story as well. There is something that happens inside of us when we live generously. When we make a commitment to care for the poor and the orphans, God makes his presence known and does something in our hearts. We are praying for you to feel his presence as your family decides to make a difference for another family you have yet to meet.
Make sure you check back for updates on the Experience and the progress of our goal!
