OUTREACH

 OUTREACH

 “The church is the only cooperative society in the world that exists for the benefit of its nonmembers.”

-William Temple.

As a local body of Christ, one of our highest callings is to reach out to others with the message of salvation and be witnesses among them -- salt and light (Matt 5:13-15) in a dark and decaying world --

OUTREACH AT HOME

Hispanic Outreach Ministry

The Hispanic Outreach Ministry exists to share the good news of the Gospel to Spanish speakers in our community. They offer a small group community to anyone wanting to know Jesus or wanting to grow deeper in their faith. They also offer weekly prayer and study opportunities and simultaneous interpretation during Sunday worship services. If you want to connect or know someone who does, email Janna Gonzalez or call 281-486-9350 ext. 304.

Impact Week

Since its inception the summer of 2008, Impact Week has been one of our most effective church-wide efforts to reach out to our community and share the unconditional love of God with our neighbors. Led by our youth ministry and supported by a strong contingent of volunteers from our church family, Impact Week is an effort to pray for and serve our neighbors, with “no strings attached.” Our goals during Impact Week are to “Love God. Love Others.” (Mark 12:30-31) and to put “God’s Love in Action” (I John 3:16-18).

Christian Outreach Alliance

COA is a cooperative of local churches ministering to the people of Clear Lake and surrounding communities with programs such as after school tutoring, Girl Scout troops, summer camps, and special events. The goal is to reach out with God’s love to see the Clear Lake Area transformed into a community with less crime, fewer high school dropouts, a lower unemployment rate, and a presence of God in every household.

Boy Scouts

We lend our facilities to two Boy Scout Troops. This partnership is mutually beneficial as they get to use our building and storage and we get to ask them to help us with certain service projects. One of the Troops even serves on our Lawn Crew. We are thankful for the opportunity to support them in their good works.

Impact Houston COC

Impact Houston Church of Christ began in 1987 in downtown Houston with the mission of bringing the love of Jesus Christ to all. Each Sunday, one of the area Churches of Christ brings and serves lunch to approximately 400 members at Impact; many of these families are from the homeless population of Houston.

We do this once each year, and provide help in other efforts, as needed.
