Outreach

Helping others in our community and around the world

Our Missions Committee

The Missions Committee is made up of a group of dedicated volunteers who meet monthly to discuss needs in the community and beyond and how we can best serve those needs.  They work with a Social Worker from Covenant to Care to provide for families with children in need, prepare and freeze meals to have available to those in our congregation and community who need them, send cards to those who are home-bound, ill, or in the military, organize clothing/toiletry drives for local shelters and fundraisers for other causes and much more.

“The mission of the Missions Committee is to assist others less fortunate than ourselves. We serve as the outreach arm of the church; soliciting, gathering and distributing gifts of all kinds according to needs of members of our Church, community, and the world.  We will also endeavor to teach the joy and grace of generous giving to our congregation.”
