Throughout the year the Outreach Commission sponsors various projects.
Bethany and Hoffman Homes
As in the past, this year’s Christmas Eve offerings will be dedicated to UCC affiliates Bethany and Hoffman Homes that serve young people with residential and mental health needs. Donations to these special homes provide safe, comfortable and spiritually nurturing environments.
Christmas Gifts for Martin Elementary School
Our Holiday Ministry of gifting Martin Elementary School students for Christmas is underway. Please consider helping to make a youngster’s holiday brighter this season. Please take a gift tag from the poster on the Outreach bulletin board in the Narthex and return the wrapped gift with that gift tag attached no later than December 17. We are also collecting new hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves for the students in the School District of Lancaster who have been displaced due to the hurricanes.
Apostles Assistance Fund
Throughout the month of November, we received many generous donations to the Apostles Assistance Fund. The Wishing Well was filled with much-needed personal care and home care supplies for those in need in our community. Thank you all for supporting the Wishing Well ministry. It is an important part of our outreach to our neighbors in need.
Donations for Puerto Rican Families in Need
In November, Church of the Apostles collected both monetary donations and items for the Puerto Rican families displaced by hurricane Maria. Children also brought items such as new socks, underwear, towels, washcloths, soap, toothpaste, and toothbrushes to the Children’s Message on Sundays.
