Compassion International is a Christian humanitarian aid organization whose goal is to assist children living in poverty globally. St. Peter’s currently supports 3 children by sending funds on a monthly basis. Some church members correspond with these children and letters are received from them quarterly. We also try to send small gifts at Christmas or on their birthday. There is a birthday jar in the church and all the proceeds collected there go to support these children or even give one time gifts to Compassion. This is a great ministry to support or even adopt your own child for $38.00 per month. See for more information.
