What is local outreach?
Local outreach is your chance to put your passions to practical purposes for God. It is meeting local needs in a way that shows God’s love for our community. What interests or skills do you have that you want to put to use for God’s Kingdom work? You ask, “What can I do?” We ask you, “How can we help you do what you think needs to be done?” You or a group put together a plan and you meet the need. Or, join a current project—short-term or long-term. It’s all about showing Christ to the greater Port Angeles area through works of caring. For more information, contact Tanya at the church office, 452-3351.
Here are a few opportunities—Perhaps one of these will interest you. Or, perhaps you see another need that needs to be met. It’s reaching Port Angeles while sharing God’s love with people in a tangible way.
These consist of a non-perishable meal, snacks and other helpful items to give out to the homeless and down-trodden in our area. For more information, or to find out how you can participate, contact Kathy Craven via the office, 452-3351.
