National Missions

Our Outreach Ministry

Our church continues to grow as we reach out to people whether it is the immediate community, Canada or the world. The Outreach ministry is soon to be called National Missions and beyond Canada missions will be called International Missions. But whatever the name, the purpose is the same, the Outreach Ministry, as does the entire church, has a heart for people and a desire to reach out with the good news of the saving Grace of Jesus Christ. We want to love our neighbours and show them that love in many ways as God leads us.

Every year at the beginning of winter and as we approach the Christmas season, the congregation starts a "Mitten Tree". This was the suggestion by one of our members and it continues to grow each year. By the time that December arrives, the tree is covered with mittens, scarves, hats and socks thanks to the loving contributions of the church members. All of these articles are then given to the Love Committee to be distributed to all that need them.

Vacation Bible School is another ministry that reaches out into our community and every year we prayerfully hope and anticipate that many children, that are not coming to Sunday School, will attend this wonderful week of fun, fellowship and the teaching of the love that God has for them.

Outreach also involves concerts, Bible Studies and many other activities as the need arises.
