Outreach

Love Your Neighbor

The ministry of outreach—heeding God’s call to serve our community and the world—is central to our vitality and health as the Body of Christ. Christ’s command to care for the least among us is not the only reason for our care and acts of faith: We are promised new life when we give of ourselves by following Christ and participating in the kingdom of God by breaking out among us and in our lives.

Join us in working, praying, and giving to spread the kingdom of God. Your time, your prayers and your gifts are all needed as we strive to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world.

  • Grace in the Park

    We go out each Sunday after the 10:30 am service to Antlers Park (on Sierra Madre) to provide compassionate spiritual support; deep, meaningful community building; and direct experience of the love and depth of the Christian Way. Contact: Fr. Brendan

  • Grace Sowers

    Committed to changing the dynamic of poor eating for those in need, we’re a faithful (and fearless) group of gardeners growing produce in a small -- and productive -- growing space here on campus and in our backyards. We occasionally offer GSA (Grace-supported agriculture) markets after services on Sundays, sharing produce for donation with funds going directly to supporting our partner, Ecumenical Social Ministries and partnering with Freshfoodconnect.org to deliver excess produce to neighbors. Contact: Susan Bassett

  • The Lord's Dinner

    Several times a year, we join other Episcopal Churches in town to serve a hearty and nutritious dinner to neighbors-in-need in a warm and friendly setting at Sacred Heart Church on the west side. On an ongoing basis, we're collecting supplies and making warming candles that become part of the "giveaways" at the Lord's Supper. The candles are the most sought-after items we provide; demand always exceeds the supply. Please donate leftover candles and metal cans (5-1/2" tall and 4" around) to boxes clearly marked in Parish Hall. Contact: Martha deUlibarri

    Working with Lutheran Refugee Services, we befriend, listen to, guide and inform refugees that have just moved to the area. Members of our group work 1-on-1 with a family or individual for six months after completing training. Contact: Jen Williamson
