We like to describe ourselves as a mission charge with a church service. That's how important Outreach is to Faith. We focus on local and global causes as chosen by the congregation. Twice yearly the Outreach Committee invites a charity to provide the message at the church service. One service will highlight a local charity and the other a global.
Some of our outreach initiatives are listed on the left. Click on the item and it will link you to a page with further information. Please get in touch with us through the Contact Us if you are interested in helping.
No One Goes Hungry
Shirley is volunteering at an organization called “No One Goes Hungry” in Halton. This group is preparing and delivering meals out of the Connect Centre in Milton, for those less fortunate in Acton, Georgetown, Milton and Oakville. They are currently inviting anyone who might be looking for a volunteer opportunity to do back up for basic cooking, and meal delivery. No experience necessary, just willing hands to help others.
January Minute for Missions
Outreach reminds you that the United Church's Gifts With Vision catalogue is active until September 2022.
In January we are focusing our Outreach support on the Afghanistan Refugee Fund at Maple Grove United Church in Oakville. They plan to bring 3 Afghani families to Halton. The families have been chosen and are currently in hiding. The Maple Grove congregation is anxious for their arrival. One family's needs for a year will cost about $40,000. Outreach is supporting this worthwhile charity on behalf of our Faith family.
CUP OF LOVE FOR OUR WONDERFUL MILTON DISTRICT HOSPITAL STAFF
Our Faith family once again showed their generosity and caring, this time toward the staff at Milton District Hospital. The dedication displayed by all hospital workers coping with the pandemic protocol while providing care to those in need has not been taken for granted. We, at Faith have shown our gratitude by giving $1,000 to allow all staff a Cup of Love in the form of a coffee at the Tim Horton’s outlet.
