We are grateful for your continued generosity to Eleven Sixteen Church. If you would like to set up one-time or reoccurring online giving, you can do that safely and securely:
The mission is greater than what happens in our church building on Sundays. Right now there are several opportunities for you to connect and serve immediate needs in our area. Below you’ll find contact information, days, and times of organizations that are out making impact.
Due to the constantly evolving nature of the needs around us, we will not be formally organizing any groups to answer these needs. Instead, we will encourage everyone to walk this out in the way they're best able.
This is a time for all of us to pull together as a community. Here are a few ways you can help:
Shop With Love: If you have the financial flexibility to leave WIC labeled items on the shelf please do so. Many individuals are struggling due to shortages and are without alternatives.
Give Blood: Blood drives across the country have been canceled creating a high need. Our local blood centers are staying open to take donations.
Meet Your Neighbors: Reach out online or knock on a door and check on your neighbors. See who may need assistance in weeks to come.
Pray With a Stranger: Encounter someone looked stressed? Offer to pray with them.
Practice Healthy Habits: Practice good hand washing and proper social distancing.

Chris & Rachel Conley (Missionaries in S. Africa)
South Africa began it's lock-down last week. There are road blocks, soldiers in the street, and people are forced to stay inside their houses or shacks, out of work and hungry. Her Voice and All Peoples Church in Kayamandi led the way, collecting massive amounts of food and supplies and distributing to families in need. Several of our team members acquired government permits, allowing them to legally enter Kayamandi to distribute these staples.
It only takes $25 to deliver a large bi-weekly food bag to a family. The more we receive, the more families we can help.
