Fill-a-Belly is a grass roots weekly dinner for the homeless that focuses on building relationships by breaking bread together. This ministry offers locals in the community a chance to personally get to know and share God’s love with those who are hurting either financially or emotionally. This connection creates a support network for those experiencing hard times and gives them the freedom to trust that there are people interested in them and willing to care for them. Every person wants to be known by someone else, to know that they are not invisible or worthless.
Fill-a-Belly promotes relationship through sharing a meal, playing games and talking with each other. This compassion ministry offers opportunities each week to serve the homeless in Encinitas and Carlsbad.

DONATE TO INTERVARSITY
InterVarsity is an evangelical ministry serving students and faculty on college campuses and universities nationwide. Our purpose is to establish and advance witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord. Our goal in San Diego is to see 1,000 students leading other students to Jesus every year. We are pursuing this goal through training students to start and lead multiplicative and missional Bible studies that reach every campus culture. Currently we have small groups reaching Athletes, Sorority & Fraternity students, residential and commuter students, women, men, Veterans, Latinos, Filipinos, and Internationals. More groups are beginning as students reach the communities they are involved in. In North County, all campuses gather for weekly worship & outreach on Wednesday nights at CSUSM and Bible studies are held weekly at CSUSM, Miracosta and Palomar. NCCC supports the ministry of InterVarsity on several campuses in San Diego. Look on InterVarsity’s website to find a campus near you and get connected!

PRAYER: Our refugee friends are not strangers to the issues and dangers of racial injustice. Please pray for their community here to find hope, healing and opportunities to have helpful conversations. Pray also for their families in Africa as Covid-19 is spreading there with little access to soap, clean water, masks, or medicine.
NEEDS: The refugee community is in urgent need as their work hours have been cut sharply or they’ve been laid off. The families need assistance to help pay insurance, rent and utilities and get tangible items like food, diapers & wipes, cleaning supplies, and other household needs.
God implores us to care for the poor, widows, orphans, immigrants and the oppressed. Terri Franklin and Karen Richards continue to partner with the Sudanese refugee community and other refugees as well in San Diego. These refugees have experienced horrors that we cannot imagine. As part of the family of God, we encourage them to trust God in every area of their lives. They have opportunities to pray, heal, grow spiritually and discover God’s ways. Through personal friendships, counseling and mentoring, we assist them with their spiritual, medical, legal, educational, employment and emergency needs.

The focus of Urban Youth Collaborative is to empower and develop urban leaders in schools where students face longer odds of success. Rev. Dr. Nate Landis, founder of Urban Youth Collaborative, started this organization because of his passion to share how Jesus brings hope, healing, and purpose into hurting lives. The goal is to win the hearts of these young individuals to Christ and connect them to a local church in their area. The program, then, aims to mobilize students as agents for change and transformation in their own neighborhoods. Currently, Urban Youth Collaborative utilizes a coalition 40 local churches that support student-led Bible clubs for more than 2,500 students every week at over 75 middle and high school campuses in San Diego County. email@example.com | www.uyc.org
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks. We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically impacted when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step on a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will impact future decisions–careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. All ripples from the time when a Young Life leader made the effort to reach out and enter their world. www.cov.younglife.org
