Philadelphia Sisters has the honor of currently supporting two philanthropies: Chosen Children Ministries & Save Our Streets Ministries. The Lord has called us to each of these ministries and we do everything we can to help them out each year. Look below to find out more about these ministries and how we support them each semester.
Chosen children ministries
Chosen Children Ministries (CCM) is an evangelical mission organization seeking to evangelize and make disciples of the people of Nicaragua. CCM exists to share God's love and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Nicaragua, serving their spiritual and physical needs in ways that bring God glory, by planting churches, equipping leaders, strengthening families and individuals, evangelizing and discipling children and adults, establishing child sponsorships, giving humanitarian aid, and providing the operating needs for Casa Mephibosheth orphanage.
One way we have supported CCM in the past is by sending a team of our own consisting of Philadelphia Sisters and Christian men who also attend TAMU and Blinn. We had the privilege of going to Nicaragua for 3 years from 2016 - 2018. Unfortunately, we have not been able to go back to civil unrest and now COVID. We are praying that we will be able to go back next year.
The other way we have supported Chosen Children's Ministries in the past is by hosting Joy to the World 5K in the fall semester. We put on this race for 10 years, donating all the proceeds to CCM. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, we are not able to host the race. Instead, we are putting on Phillies Phun Run this semester. Phillies Phun run is a walk-a-thon that is going to happen on November 21st. You can join Phillies in supporting CCM by walking on November 21st anywhere you are, by donating, or by buying t-shirt or sticker. For more information about Phillies Phun Run, click the link below:
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
SOS Ministries "exists to rescue, restore, and release, and to put ourselves in the world of those we serve so that we might help revolutionize their lives." The ministry works in Bryan and surrounding areas to bring the light of the Gospel and quality programs to help raise up leaders from the streets. Today, SOS partners with approximately 300 volunteers, and over 75 churches and organizations to effectively take the love of Jesus Christ to the streets.
God has called us to dedicate our time and talent as a testimony of His transforming power to raise up, equip, and empower others to “Save Our Streets.”Phillies has proudly supported this local ministry with donations from Songfest. We no longer do Songfest, but now put on a concert called Beats for Our Street in the spring semester. All proceeds from Beats for Our Streets and parts of the proceeds earned by our vendors go directly to SOS. Unfortunately, we were not able to put on Beats for Our Streets this past spring semester due to COVID but are hoping to host the concert this next spring.
Throughout the year, we support SOS by volunteering at SOS throughout the year in leading Bible studies, helping in after school care, and putting on girls' night. This is such a sweet opportunity for Phillies to get to share the love that we receive from God to others.
