Outreach and Mission

The Apostle Paul wrote to the church in Rome: “Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are man are one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have
different gifts, according to the grace given us.” Romans 12:4-6.

Outreach and Missions Committee is responsible for ministries of fellowship, compassion, and unification within and outside our
church. We believe that we are a part of a world-wide church, and as such we are called to reach out to our world in compassion and service.

Our congregation care includes the following:
Shepherding: Includes calls, cards, and visitation to members who are unable to attend services long or short term. A card
ministry extends shepherding by sending cards in times of joy or sadness. Also, the Post Project takes CDs of the service to those
who can attend.

Milestone Celebrations: Recognition of individuals on their 90th birthdays. Children participate to bond the generations.

Birthday Fellowships: After-services refreshments honoring birthday celebrants each month.birthday fellowship

L.I.F.E.: Sponsored events provide Learning, Inspiration, Fellowship, and Enrichment;
open to all. Includes trips, activities, and other events. (See the events page for schedules)

Outreach ministries support the needy in the community and beyond.
