During the Covid-19 crisis Navah is supporting the work of Freedom Fire Urban Ministries.
Freedom Fire cares for those greatly impacted by the Coronavirus. They are distributing care packages to children and families living in and around Federal housing. They will also distribute similar care packages to the homeless.
Through our Home Churches we are buying and packing care packages to be distributed by Freedom Fire. We have committed to a monthly amount so it's very important that you email Tim Goddu and let him know how many packages you are dropping off.
Here is the list of what they would prefer in each pre-packed care package:
Care Package List:
-Peanut Butter And Jelly
-Bread (2 Loaves Per Bag)
-Canned Food (I.E.Spaghettios And Ravioli) - the 'easy open' cans are best
-Fruit (Fresh And Canned)
-Paper Products (Toilet Paper And Paper Towels)
These Pre-packed Care Bags Can Be Dropped Off At The Following Times And Places:
Freedom Fire Southside: 1111 E. 85th St., Kansas City MO
On Sundays From 11am To 1pm. and on Weekdays From 2pm To 4pm.

Report June 2020
Navah is standing in the gap in serving those living on the margins in Kansas City through our partnership with Freedom Fire, an urban ministry to the homeless and single parent families.
Over the past three months our church provided over 500 two-ounce bottles of hand sanitizer, and 180+ personal care packages to FF for distribution. Thanks to all the HC families that participated and those that gave through FaithFund in this vital and necessary outreach!
Additionally, Navah has committed to serve once a month (the third Monday of every month) with Freedom Fire's outreach "Church Under the Bridge" to the homeless population living under the Oak St-18th St bridge in downtown KC. Our role is to provide a team of 4-5 volunteers, including a worship leader, a devo leader and prayer ministers. What an amazing ministry for your home church to share in. Our remaining dates this year (all Monday nights from 5:30PM-6:30PM) are: July 20th; Aug 17th; Sept 21st; Oct 19th; Nov 16th and Dec 21st). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to sign up to serve!
