Christ at the center
We love others because Christ first loved us.
Our mission is to break the cycle of poverty in Jackson and its surrounding areas. Our goal is to work with the entire family unit, thus changing the family climate, creating hope for all generations.
We work to provide spiritual, emotional, mental, physical and financial supports that allow individuals and families to become well adjusted and whole.
When our community is getting help, we can provide strong foundations for children. These foundations help develop long lasting, healthy relationships in Jackson.
Compassionate Ministries Center - The Table
There is an old testament Bible story of King David’s best friend, Jonathan. As a child, Jonathan’s son, Mephibosheth, had a tragic accident that left him unable to walk or care for himself. After Jonathan died, David promised his friends’ son that he would always eat at the king’s table and would always have a place to live. “So Mephibosheth ate at David’s table like one of the king’s sons” (2 Samuel 9:11).
So, just like King David welcomed Mephiboseth at his table, we are called to welcome everyone to our table! Because of this, we’ve chosen to refer to our Compassionate Ministries Center as “The Table.”
Whether it’s our David’s Promise participants and families, individuals participating in our Community Empowerment Program, families receiving a Thanksgiving basket, or an individual receiving food assistance from our community garden, “The Table” is where we can ALL go for the nourishment we may need; whether it be food, information, community, or compassion! “The Table” represents our love and acceptance of all people!
CMJC EXISTS to
PROVIDE HOPE AND SUPPORT TO OUR jackson, mi neighbors
Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County (CMJC) is a faith-based ministry serving the greater Jackson County area since 2012. We are aware of the difficulties this world can bring. Life can bring unemployment, sickness, family and financial stresses; some brought on by the choices we make, others not foreseen, unpredicted. CMJC is passionate about meeting the immediate needs of those in our community. We also are passionate about helping others with long term solutions to life’s adversities.
Through the building of relationships with those we serve, our hope is to assist families and individuals in becoming self sufficient. We understand this takes a community of people, serving together, building a better Jackson!
