Two Penny Missions seeks to partner with the community of Northeast Louisiana to help individuals meet immediate needs, while opening a relationship with the Church to introduce Jesus Christ to the lost.
Two Penny Missions will be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community by building servant relationships and demonstrating kindness and love that reflects a relationship with Jesus Christ.
"While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. "I tell you the truth", Jesus said, "this poor widow has given more than all of the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has"."
