The Missions Committee supports selected local agencies that address various needs in our community on a quarterly basis. The funds used for this endeavor are requested by the committee from the Church Budget prior to the building of the annual budget and are subject to ongoing review. On occasion new agencies are added and others removed or given reduced funding due to changing circumstances
Each committee member is an advocate or intermediary for an agency being assisted so that a relationship is created with the group being helped. Checks for funds approved at quarterly meetings are personally delivered by committee members to further establish our support.
There is a loose change collection tradition called “Dimes” which encourages attendees to save loose change for a weekly offering. The sum of this money is primarily used for kids missions and programs focused on summer and Christmas activities for local children.
In addition, our members volunteer their time and talent to these organizations, as well as other agencies in the local area.
