Haven of Hope and Blue Monarch the Last of our Missions for 2014

This Christmas our mission offering will go to two powerful local missions to women in troubled situations: Haven of Hope and Blue Monarch ministries.  Haven of Hope at root is a domestic violence shelter for women who find themselves living in abusive circumstances.  They describe their mission as:

To provide proactive, curative, and preventive measures against domestic, sexual, and other violent crimes.

To provide resources to strengthen and empower victims to resolve their own issues and problems.

The other mission is Blue Monarch, based on the mountain.   Whenever you eat a piece of pie or have lunch at the Blue Chair Cafe in Sewanee, you're dollars are going into this remarkable ministry.  Here is what they do in their own words:


Blue Monarch, a long-term residential program for determined women and their children, provides a safe, nurturing and challenging environment, where they can overcome abuse, unhealthy choices and emotional wounds, while they restore family bonds and gain independence and maturity through the experience of God's love.

"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come."
2 Corinthians 5:17

Blue Monarch is a non-profit designed to serve the abused and addicted women along with their children. We accept women who are currently recovering from physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse, alcohol or drug addictions, poverty and mental health issues.

Blue Monarch offers each woman a one to two-year residential program specifically designed to fit her individual needs and help her further her education, break her addictions, become a better mother, obtain a job and gain independence.

We will take an offering to be divided between these two missions on Sunday, December 21.  What better way to celebrate Advent and Christmas than by remembering and offering our compassion to these women and their families!

We regularly post the newsletters for both of these ministries on our bulletin board in the fellowship hall.
