Social Ministry

There are many needs within our local, national, and global communities. Our social ministry committee is striving to meet some of those needs by extending christian compassion and support through our many social ministry programs.

The Social Ministry Committee is in need of additional members. The following quote by Menno Simons defines the purpose of Social Ministry.

“True evangelical faith cannot lie dormant. It clothes the naked, it feeds the hungry, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded, it has become all things to all people.”

If this quote is meaningful to you, we invite you to join us.

For more information please contact Marianne Burkholder, Norma Good, or Mary Jean Liller.
