Objective of the Missions Committee
The objective of the Missions Committee is “to assist the congregation of St. Matthew’s in ministering to all persons of the world in need through programs of relief, rehabilitation, service, and prayer…in the spirit of Jesus Christ.”
Goals of the Missions Program at St. Matthew’s
- To inspire, inform, and educate the congregation concerning opportunities to serve in God’s mission. An emphasis is placed on “feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, educating the poor, aiding the sick, and providing for those in need.” To know no boundaries, to serve local, national and international scopes.
- To provide an opportunity for every member of St. Matthew’s to participate in a mission outreach project. This stewardship is part of the tradition and fabric of our faith community.
- To form “work teams” from St. Matthew’s to support Local, National and International mission projects.
- Provide the children and youth of our church opportunities to actively participate in charitable acts of universal love through projects supported by adult leadership.
