Outreach


Mission and Outreach seeks to serve those less fortunate members of our local and international communities.  We actively support the local community:  Arundel House of Hope, Habitat for Humanity, Holiday Sharing, Paul’s Place, SPAN, Winter Shelter, and the Severna Park Community Center.  We also provide our facilities to Boy Scout’s of America, Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, Mother’s of Multiples, and the Aspergers Support Group.

All are invited to join the Mission & Outreach Commission with both their time and talent to fulfill our greater mission “to serve.”  We welcome your help in the work of the commission to assist those who need our support. Contact our commissioners for more information about any of our outreach ministries:
