Missions/Outreach

 

 

 
 
Missions and Outreach is dedicated to serving those in need within our church, our community and our world!
 
 
 
 
We are very active with “The Families in Need” program through NESAP in Hampstead. Every year we sponsor 6 families in our community for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This includes a church wide food drive and grocery gift certificates to help to complete the meal. In addition, we provide gifts of needed items to be placed under the Christmas tree for these families.
 
Church Visitations and one of our favorite old-time traditions, Christmas Caroling, keep us connected to some of our members and shut-ins who can no longer join us for worship. A phone call, a note or a visit can really brighten up someone’s day.
 
From a global perspective, we have for the past 15 years participated in a mission in India, “The Ellestries Ministry” and have contributed to the care and education of children in that region. An extension of this program is our “pickle jar” which has taught the children of our church to share what they have with other children who are less fortunate.
 
Since 2014, we have participated in a local ministry "Loaves and Fishes" feeding the needy in Westminster, MD.
 
 
 
All are invited to join us and participate as we serve one another in Christ’s name.
