Originally, many persons in Perry County sought help from the faith community with a myriad of needs. The faith community was being confronted by:
Join Hands Ministry was formed to be a central point of contact and services with the purpose of making these needs known among the area churches, filling in the “gaps” for persons in need, and creating a standardization of qualifying true poverty needs while establishing lines of accountability for responsible management of funds and goods donated to the cause.
It is the desire of Join Hands Ministry to join hands with local churches to foster a sense of community, encouraging your congregants to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. We do a monthly online/digital newsletter by email. It too is posted on our Facebook page. To sign up, email us at email@example.com. The heart in doing so, keeps the body of Christ in Perry County connected with the corporate church work we all are called to do. We are Christ in our local community.
Communication to Perry County bodies of Christ (the local churches) is a premium goal for Join Hands Ministry. You can take our monthly newsletter and plug it into your church bulletins or Join Hands Ministry can print our own bulletin inserts. All you would need to do is communicate how many, size and when they'd be picked up or we could mail them.
It is the desire to be transparent with our donors. This includes the financials. This is done monthly in our online/digital newsletter.
