Serving in the community...

Community Link at Alliance Bible Church

Community Link ... Radiating Christ in the community.

 

Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house…praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved. Acts 2:46-47

 But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.  James 2:18

 

Community Link is a ministry of Alliance Bible Church that encourages radiating the love of Christ to our community by connecting the congregation to volunteer opportunities with nonprofits and community groups.

 We are working with the following organizations:

Exploit No More

Mission: Motivated by the love of Jesus, Exploit No More’s mission is to dismantle the local sex trade of children by using three key approaches: awareness, advocacy, and aftercare. Exploit No More is working to establish an aftercare home facility where juvenile victims of sexual exploitation can go to receive long-term residential care and love. They cultivate awareness about child sex trafficking in Milwaukee through trainings, outreaches, and film screenings, to help hotels, businesses and everyday citizens identify potential trafficking situations. Exploit No More educates law enforcement and key leaders about child sex trafficking and mobilizes support for sound, victim-centered policies.
