Connecting you with a "Simple Way to Serve"
Anyway you can help is gladly accepted including: time, talents, prayers, services and financial support.
Serving our immediate community and community at large; from Buffalo NY to Haiti. In Haiti we have been working for years helping build a medical clinic, providing meals in a local school, and providing clean drinking water. In conjuction with Fincial Literacy Ministery, CIA also fundraises to be able to give a bible to each graduate of a literacy program.
CIA and its volunteers goes in to a different mission each year to give it a recharge for all the great work they're doing. We might work on homes and paint, repair electrical and plumbing problems, build a garden, furnish a house for refugees or fix up the mission. Whatever the needs of the mission are we have a great team of volunteers ready to help.
Collecting a forgotten necessity for those who need it most. Our member churches collect NEW men's, women's and children's underwear during the month of September. We then donate to 6-8 local missions.
CIA volunteers help raise funds at the Christmas in the Country show at the Erie County fair grounds. Volunteers sell bags at the fair to support our mission.
A high point of our Christmas season is getting to go to local group homes to carol. We sing our favorite Christmas songs, share fellowship and cookies with the residents.
