Outreach Ministries

Overview

Matthew 25:35-46 New International Version (NIV)

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

On Sundays, we worship God. We lift our prayers and concerns up to God. And the rest of the week we are called to be Christ to our neighbors, to strangers and loved ones alike.” Through our outreach ministries, we provide food to the hungry, we help clothe the naked, house the homeless. Those we encounter, we encounter as Christ. Another part of our outreach is our some of out fellowship activities. Being in the community while doing seemingly ordinary social activities such as bicycling together and/or golfing together, we are gathering to be a community that shares our love of Christ with one another…with our friends, with our loved ones, with strangers we encounter.

 No matter how we serve, in ways big and small. we are knit together as one, with the love of Christ.

Supporting Emmaus House
