Sharing the Love of God through worship, education and outreach.

Mission & Outreach

Committee Chairperson, Kathy Sanford, has a full plate of mission and outreach opportunities in which anyone can become involved. Our hands-on service work helps us connect our faith to our daily lives through our actions.

Sister Carmen Food Pantry ~ nonperishable food donations are received on an ongoing basis through the white cupboard pantry located just next to the kitchen door in the church foyer. Our goal is to donate 1,000 pounds of food in 2017.

We support EFAA (Emergency Family Assistance) Apartments with monthly donations as they are communicated to us. Bins behind the Welcome Center receive these donations. Currently, our residents especially need bleach, diapers (size 5 and 6) and wipes, deodorants for men and women, body wash for adults, and toilet bowl cleaner.

EFAA receives our gifts through Angel Tree. During the upcoming holiday season, look for a Christmas Tree just outside the sanctuary with angel ornaments. This year, we intend to support all 11 apartments including the parents or guardians as well as the children.

Anyone can get involved with Mission and Outreach activities. Seasonal and even weekly Mission and Outreach opportunities come up all the time. Updates will appear on this page so check back often, please.
