Freeman Chapel CME Church Implements Campaign

Freeman Chapel CME Church (Ashdown, Arkansas) has dedicated itself to addressing the needs of children in poverty. Working in partnership with the Pan-Methodist Campaign for Children in Poverty, the Church has decided to:
  • Utilize announcements during Sunday worship and on the Church’s main bulletin board for presenting information on employment, housing, and poverty in their local community.
  • Expand their involvement in “One Church – One School” through an “alternative high school”, and to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas Food baskets to needy families.
  • Recruit church members to volunteer at local schools as tutors and special event workers.
  • Collect donations, every three months, of clothes, shoes, and household items for the local Domestic Violence Prevention Resale Shop.

Reported by Mrs. Lynn White, CME Liaison (Arkansas Region).

Visit the 'Be Involved' page to see how congregations and annual conferences are reporting on their faith in action for children in poverty.


Reading the Campaign booklet is a first step for becoming familiar with this initiative. It offers information and resources to encourage your activism. It can be viewed and downloaded at The Campaign page.

We hope that you will contribute information about your work with children. Descriptions of your ministries will be helpful to others who want to deepen their involvement to care for children in poverty.

You can influence the Campaign’s effectiveness.  Be involved.  Offer your ideas.  Encourage others.

Trusting in God, we dare to envision a world in which every child experiences love, care, and hope. Together we can be the difference in the lives of children in poverty.
