The Mission Committee is sponsoring a Book Drive to support the children at Urban Promise now through October 1st. First Pres Caldwell has had a long relationship with Urban Promise and actively supports their mission: “to equip Camden’s children and young adults with the skills and knowledge necessary for academic achievement, life management, spiritual growth, and Christian leadership.”
We are collaborating with the Urban Promise Librarian, and the Girls Empowerment Leader. They have given us a list of specific needs for the library along with Bible Study Guides needed for the Girls Empowerment Group. The prices for the books range from $4.00 to $15.00. Purchases can be made directly through a registry at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/registries/custom/1M0PUDQLI9H4Y/guest-view.
The registry can be found at the Amazon home page by clicking the REGISTRY page which will bring you to the next page and ask for “Registrants Name” – type in Urban Promise and next tab select CUSTOM REGISTRY. We are listed as URBAN PROMISE BOOK DRIVE. Note there is no reference to First Pres Caldwell.
We will have books available for purchase after the September 25th Service. You can also support the project with a financial donation by going to the DONATE section at the church website and clicking the drop-down menu for the Urban Promise Book Drive.
