Reaching the Unreached in Tanzania
We have an opportunity to help bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the Massai people of Tanzania in a very practical way. Our goal is to help finish a fresh water well project in the Kirya region of Massai country, near Kilamanjaro, Tanzania.
There is a newly planted church in Kirya and a pastor and his family now serves the people of this region. The well will change things radically for the Massai, as they now drink diseased water from a nearby river which causes the men, women, and children to suffer from many water-born diseases. Easily accessible and clean drinking water, drawn from church’s property, will allow many opportunities for the gospel to change the lives of these precious people.
Also, we have an opportunity to help purchase adjoining property for an expanded presence in that area that will include a secondary school where children will not only be educated, but also trained to work the land and given life skills. Our goal is to raise $2500 for the purchase of the land, and $5000 for the well.
Reaching the Less Fortunate in East Tennessee
Our annual Kids First Daycare/Stockings of Love outreach will help buy gifts and materials for needy families in the East Tennessee region. This year our ministry will include: families at the Knoxville Burundi Church, West Lonsdale Center of English; Briceville Elementary (107 students) and dozens of families in the mountains of Briceville.

Our goal is to raise $1000 for outreach to the daycare and surrounding area.
Feed the Children: We are once again offering relief to children and families in very poor areas of Kenya and Philippines that have been devastated by lack of food and income because of COVID-19 restrictions in those countries. We are working with Victoria Watoto Fund (Alloyce Leonard) and Just Rice Pastor (James Tica) who have been serving these families since the beginning of the pandemic. Your gift will help sustain these families during this prolonged difficult time. Our goal is to raise $1500 for this ministry.
Goal for the Well Project: $5000
Goal for the Land Purchase Project: $2500
Goal for Stockings of Love and Daycare: $1000
Goal for Feed the Children $1500
Total Hands & Feet Offering Goal: $10,000
We have been so blessed and we want to raise our level of giving to missions as well, so TCC will match everything given to this offering up to $5000!
