The Outreach Task Team of Westminster United Church seeks to:
Help build positive connections within the congregation and community:
Support families in need within the congregation and community:
Respond to national and global concerns:
Promote social justice issues:
Provide information and support towards peace, the environment and multi-faith understanding:
Sometimes outreach ministry can be done more effectively by working in relationship with groups and organizations already dedicated to helping others. Through their expertise we work together to do what we could not do on our own.
Mission & Service of The United Church of Canada
M&S is a practical way to respond to the many needs in our communities, our country and the world. UCC responds to disasters such as the Syrian refugee crisis and the Fort McMurray fire through its Emergency Relief Fund. Donations can be made anytime through the office or your offering envelope.
The first Sunday of each month is designated Bread for Life Sunday. The congregation is encouraged to bring loaves of bread and monetary gifts which are delivered to Carmichael Outreach. Carmichael Outreach offers a housing support program, food security and nutrition program, free clothing and household boutique and addictions/mental illness programs.
Regina Anti-Poverty Ministry
The Regina Anti-Poverty Ministry (RAPM) is a social justice ministry of Wascana Presbytery of The United Church of Canada. RAPM advocates and educates with and for those seeking social and economic justice. The work of RAPM is divided in three areas: individual advocacy, public education and social justice.
Lumsden Beach Camp
Westminster United offers financial support to children and youth attending Lumsden Beach Camp. LBC is a United Church camping ministry fostering relationships, leadership, faith in God, environmental stewardship and a connection to nature in a safe, inclusive and sustainable community.
If you have a passion for putting your faith in action, serving “the least of these”, advocating for justice, and a love for your neighbour, the Outreach Task Team is a great way to serve. We heed the call for charity, justice and peace.
Call the church office or email firstname.lastname@example.org to be connected; or attend a monthly meeting, held on the third Sunday of the month (Sept-June) in the Lounge after worship.
