2018 Loaves & Fishes Offering
Night to Noon
This year the Loaves & Fishes Offering will go to support the Child Development Program in the Philippines. This program is administered by the Council of CP Churches in the Philippines. Our missionaries, Daniel and Kay Jang provide strong administrative leadership for this program. There are various Child Development Programs in different CP churches/missions located on the island of Iloilo, Philippines.
The program consists of a Saturday event where the children receive a hot meal, hear a Bible study, have classes on hygiene or some other relevant subject, sing and play games. The Loaves & Fishes Offering will be used to provide meals and supplies for the children that attend this program.

This yearly observance takes place during the month of November, and the annual offering is typically received on the Sunday prior Thanksgiving (or some other date appropriate for your congregation). It is generally viewed as a thank offering. The observance is based upon Matthew 14:13-21, Jesus feeding the multitude. 75% of the offering is given to the Missions Ministry Team and it goes to hunger projects outside the States (a new project annually). 25% is retained by the congregation and used in a hunger program in their own community.
