Statement from the President
We are giving away Christmas Trees to families affected by Covid19 in our area. This is the least we can do, to help bring back the joy of Christmas to kids and families. It's tough on all of us, but together we can make it happen, together we can stand, and together we can fight this pandemic.
It has been a tough, terrible year for all of us. Many lives have been lost and many families crippled. Communities are paralyzed and folks are hopeless. We believe in unity, togetherness, love, sharing, upliftment and empowering others. That's why we decided to bring some sunshine, some hope and a smile back to faces through Christmas Caroling. We shall be caroling outside nursing homes, and in the communities of Hazleton, West Hazleton, Drums and Freeland starting December Saturday the 5th, 12th, and 19th 24th.
Last Summer we gave away 30 used bikes to kids in need in our area. This year we our goal is collect 50 bikes or more to benefit kids in need locally. Think back when you were a kid, the kind of freedom a bike brought to you. Every kid deserves a bike. Donate your used/ new bike for a good cause.
Each Christmas we go to Kensington Philadelphia and celebrate the birth of Jesus with the unwanted, unloved and unwelcomed.
This year we took with us Santa Aka Kensington Santa and a Christmas Tree Aka the Kensington Tree. We served between 300-500 people that day.
Each Year around Thanksgiving time we go to our local police for a visit. This program helps bridge the gap between the police and the community. We get to meet our officers and they get to meet the locals as well.
Friends Can Make It Happen is a mission of JourneyMate Church.
We acquired the former St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Hazleton as our new home.
We are working on the piping and heating and soon we will be open for services.
We will keep you updated on this! We give God all the glory and all the honor.
We Participated for the first time in the Hazleton City Funfest. Looking forward to 2020 event.
We collected 300, backpacks and other scholastic materials and donate it to kids in need in the Philadelphia and Hazleton areas.
Thank you for supporting children's education. Together we can make it happen for them.
On Saturday August 24th we distributed used bike kids in need. I will never for get this 9 year old telling me she's never had a bike in her life. It was a blessing to give her a bike. That was her first time to own a bike and her smile on her face was priceless.
Thank you Friends for supporting us and making it happen for them. #FCMIHBIKES4KIDS

Hazleton City Community Clean Up Project. Volunteers always welcome.
It's our city, therefore our responsiblity
June 29th we will once again be in Philly. We will be providing meals, haircuts, sharing the word of God and praying for anyone who would like prayer. Please pray for us as our team of approximately 30 people go into the drug infested streets to proclaim the gospel of Jesus with action.
Each year we host in event in the city of Hazleton to benefit the less fortunate children in our area. The beginning of school can often be stressful for families who do not have enough finances to provide for their children's school supplies. We try to ease that burden by providing backpack's full of school supplies and gently worn clothes and shoes. We are always in need of back packs and school supplies such as pencils, pens, erasers, notebooks, rulers, etc. If you would like to donate or volunteer please contact us at 1-570-636-1383. You can also mail a donation to
52 Foster Avenue Freeland, Pa 18224.
Our Karamoja Sandal fundraiser is still going on.
Did you know? In Africa some sandals are made from used tires. Because of that the sole of the sandal never wears out. With your gift of $2.00 you can give someone a pair of sandals for a lifetime.
