Ministry for Outreach
We are committed to loving our neighbors and helping those in need. Our mission and outreach efforts help the hungry and the homeless, support children and families and seniors in need, encourage peacemaking and stewardship of the earth, and help those recovering from disasters. Members are personally involved in charitable causes and vital service organizations, locally and globally.
A few causes we've supported:
Area Food Pantries
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
Schoharie County Recovery
Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless
Parsons Child and Family Center
Troy Area United Ministries
PAZAPA School for Disabled Children,Haiti
Prevent Child Abuse
Japan Aid Relief
Bethlehem Festival Fund
Family Promise is an organization we are currently working with to help those who are homeless and overwhelmed by their situation. Four times a year we host a few families in the evening and overnight at the church. We socialize with them and feed them. During the daytime they go to work or the day-home where they get support from the organization itself.
You can learn a lot from their stories! It's an enriching experience for everyone involved and we couldn't do it without our volunteers!
