Missions and Outreach
Commitment to serving others beyond the four walls is an important part of our calling in Christ Jesus. We provide both financial support as well as face-to-face and hands on opportunities, which embody the love of Jesus for others. We seek to be in mission work locally, nationally, and globally, or as we put it: Here, Across the Street, and Around the World.
October is our Prison Ministry Opportunity: the Maryland Kairos organization is a multi-Church group of laypersons and Clergy that will be sharing God's Love with Prisoners and the Spouses and family of prisoners. Through prayer, visitation, art, and other means, we sponsor two efforts: The first is Kairos Outside which is a ministry to the adult women who have been touched by a loved-one's incarceration. A second effort called Kairos Inside sponsors a retreat and monthly prayer visits to the Jessup men's prison (MCI-J). Both ministries have big events this October. Stay tuned for more opportunities to share. More information about Kairos can be seen at: www.marylandkairos.org. Contact the Church Office who can get you in touch with the coordinators if you are interested.
