Each year the Outreach Committee provides grants to non-profit organizations to further our mission to further the “ . . .  Gospel imperative to feed the hungry, clothe and shelter the needy, care for the sick and visit the imprisoned, as well as the Christian call to be an instrument of healing in our broken world”.
