LOCAL MISSIONS

Join Us at Jubilee Day

Jubilee Day in Mechanicsburg, PA, is the largest one-day street fair on the East Coast, and we’re excited for CLA to participate this year! This all-day event will be held on Thursday, June 16. We will sponsor the event’s petting zoo and will have a vendor booth with various kids’ activities. We love our local community, and being part of this event will offer a great opportunity for our staff and volunteers to provide a fun, meaningful experience for families, connect with attendees and share information about CLA.

We will have a variety of volunteer opportunities available, such as setting up the petting zoo area the night before, greeting guests during the day and more. Additional details will be coming soon! In the meantime, with questions, please email cla@clacamphill.com.

DOMESTIC MISSIONS

Philadelphia Dream Center

Philadelphia is an amazing city that invested so much in establishing our nation, and yet it is leading in deep poverty among big cities and has an estimated 100 deaths every month due to opioid addiction. Nearly 20 percent of Philadelphia residents live in food-insecure homes, often leaving children to go many mornings and evenings without a proper meal.

David and Shirrie Dominguez saw these needs and were moved to do something. Nearly six years ago, they set up a partnership with the Los Angeles Dream Center in preparation to become a part of the solution and provide an unorthodox city with an unorthodox church and share the Good News of Jesus.

God gave them big dreams, and He is providing the resources to awaken a city that desperately needs Him! Starting humbly by serving out of their home, they moved several times over the years and continued to increase their footprint and reach. God has now provided a 50,000 sq. ft. facility that will be a beacon of hope in a spiritually dark area.

This facility has four buildings, including a school where they will be able to provide an after-school program, helping kids to learn a new way of life and get them off the streets. They will also have a church where the Gospel message will be shared and two other buildings that will likely be used for men and women who are in desperate and hopeless situations.
With a need to renovate these spaces, the next steps for the Philadelphia Dream Center could include you!
  • Pray for the ministry teams to stay strong in this spiritual battle and to reach the hurting and the lost
  • Serve in a way God is leading you, even if it is out of your comfort zone
  • Give if you feel God is nudging you to do something more
