St. John's United Church of Christ




Outreach Ministry's goal is to support mission locally, nationally, in our wider UCC church goals and vision, and globally.  There are opportunities to participate both directly and indirectly in our outreach efforts.  Through reaching out to others and needs in our community and beyond, we hope to fulfill the commandment to love and to serve others as modeled for us in the life of Christ and in God's grace and care extended to all.

Our mission opportunities are reflected in the following list:

Local Outreach Missions St. John's Supports:

Additionally, each year at the Lenten season, we support a major mission effort. Much of this effort is to support mission in another part of the world.  Funds given in recent years in this effort support:

      1)  Individuals affiliated with a mission organization serving in another culture in providing expertise in a given profession that enhances the living for that community, or,

      2)  Support to education or improved living conditions for villages in areas such as Peru.

There is ample opportunity at St. John's for individuals to serve in outreach in a hands-on approach and/or financial support to the varied needs that exist in our world.

With our donations, the water system was able to be built along with education on the value of drinking clean water.  Each child received their on cup and each family receives a new 16-liter water bucket for daily refill at the water plant.  This project was through the Detroit Zoological Society.
