Community Outreach Ministry
The Community Outreach Ministry exists to foster the participation of our congregation in volunteering their time, talent, and financial resources to organizations serving the many and varied needs of our surrounding communities.
To be a loving, Christian presence in our community by serving the physical and spiritual needs of those in and the surrounding area.
Philosophy of Outreach Ministries
“And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 NIV)
One of the Great Ends of the Church is the promotion of social righteousness; and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.
To lead the congregation in ministries of personal and social healing, and reconciliation in the communities in which the church lives and bears its witness.
God sends the church in the power of the Holy Spirit to exercise compassion in the world, feeding the hungry, comforting the grieving, caring for the sick, visiting the prisoners, freeing the captives, reaching out to college student & young adults and befriending the lonely.
The purpose of Outreach Ministries is three-fold:
- To develop mission awareness in the congregation through all forms of communication;
- To provide limited assistance through money, goods and services to several local agencies on an annual basis;
- To reach out beyond our immediate community, nationally and globally in an effort of furthering the work of Jesus Christ.
