Current Faith in Action Projects  

Children supported – Faith in Action sponsors two children through Global Ministries Child Sponsorship at the Family Village Farm, Kasam, Vellore, India.  This center near Vellore, India, provides food, clothing and shelter in a home-like setting for poor, orphaned children. The children live in family groups of up to ten children with a surrogate mother and grandparents. Following their early education, the children also learn vocational skills.

Reducing Gun Violence – Deaths caused by guns are a huge problem in our country. The Faith in Action group will be exploring a balance between protecting rights of sports shooters and the rights of everyone to be safer from violent or careless owners.  See the Advocating for Justice page on this website for more information.
