From time to time we all face difficulties—some more serious than others. Sometimes our usual ways of coping don’t seem to be enough.
How can churches help? 76 churches (and counting!) from eight denominations across Ontario are finding the Congregational Assistance Plan (CAP) to be an exciting, affordable tool for extending the hand of Christ to those among them who are hurting. Schools and workplaces are doing the same!
