- We help the homeless and working poor by periodically providing dinners to two local shelters: Bethesda House, which houses approximately 15 men; and Dorothy Day Place, which cares for 20 women.
- Church members contribute non-perishable food throughout the year to Bethesda Help and Manna Food Center.
- We collect clothes year round and school supplies in the fall; and are an active Contributing Member to Interfaith Works.
- Church members organize dinner at a local restaurant for "Thanksgiving in February" and Youth participate in the "30 Hour Famine" to bring attention to the issue of hunger.
Our largest and most joyful outreach project is the annual Christmas Angel Tree Project. CSA is a staging location for clothes, toys and food baskets for families in need. Each year our children help many church members sort and package several hundred gifts make deliveries prior to Christmas.
We have a Covenant Relationship with two missionary families: Drs. Jeffrey and Ellen Hoover in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Nan McCurdy and her husband, Miguel Mairena, in Nicaragua. We contribute yearly to each missionary family, and support them in our thoughts and prayers.
We also contributed money to scholarships funds, and to the Women’s Clinic which provides free cervical cancer screening and treatment, and sends a doctor monthly to treat women in seven remote villages.
In addition, we continue to support children at the Mukui Primary School in the rural Kiambu District near Nairobi, Kenya. On a regular basis, funds are raised to support the neediest students to help them pay for school fees, uniforms, books, and school supplies. We also helped build and develop a secure library for teachers and students. Last summer, two of our members visited the school and helped to set up the library with many new books purchased locally. Students especially appreciated new soccer balls. Another mission is providing scholarships to orphaned students and clean water for the school.
