Crisis Care Kits
We are collecting items for Crisis Care Kits. Go to downloads to get a copy of the items we need.
Crisis Care Kits (CCKs) are a cooperative effort between Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Incorporated (NCMI) and Nazarene Missions International (NMI).
CCKs continue to meet the needs around the world. The kits have gone to places like Belize, California,, Dominican Republic, Greensburg, KS, Haiti, Jamaica, Jordon, Louisiana, Philippines, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, and Zambia. Your generosity makes an incredible difference!
Each local church is challenged to donate enough kits to fill at least one banana box (six CCKs per banana box). Small churches may combine efforts to fill banana boxes with CCKs. Kits may be received year-round and people are encouraged to provide kits when disasters occur around the world so quantities will be sufficient.
Collection of Campbell soup labels. There is a super sized soup can in the Sanctuary foryer to collect Campbells Soup lables. These labels help fund mission projects.
Mission Books. Talk to Gwen Tirrel for an opportunity to borrow Mission books or audio and find out what the Church of the Nazarene is doing on the Mission field.
