Department of Outreach
The Department of Outreach has, as its major responsibility, the
concern for the
Community at large, and the surrounding neighborhood in particular.
This department gives evidence that our church cares about our
neighbors and humanity in general. This department works with others
to alleviate human suffering, and to alleviate the cares of the
homeless, hungry, unemployed, and those needing specialized guidance
and assistance. We continue to be involved in the Jefferson Park
improvement committee and Habitat for Humanity. Two homes were
completed and dedicated to selected families in 2003.
It is god when you truly obey our Lord’s command:
“You must love and help your neighbors just as much as you
love and take care of yourself.”
