Service and Outreach

Social Justice Committee

Matthew 25 inspires the congregation to engage in service and social justice ministries. To strengthen the congregation’s involvement in service and social justice ministries.  Provide opportunities for members to express their faith by responding to the needs of others.  Work with other congregations or faith-based organizations to implement programs that serve the needs of others, while deepening the faith and life experience of the volunteers. (LSS, Safe Haven, Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Union Gospel Mission, and various CHUM programs including Food Shelf, Steve O’Neil Apartments, Drop-In Center, etc.)

If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact the office.
