Outreach Ministry Team
The work of the Outreach Ministry Team falls under parish Vision Statement #5
We believe that God is calling us to further develop active relationships and engagement within St. Peter’s and beyond as we: (1) respond to human need by loving service, (2) seek to transform unjust structures, (3) challenge and resist violence, and (4) pursue peace and reconciliation.
St. Peter's actively supports a number of initiatives ranging from local to global. These have included:
- St. Matthew's-Maryland Community Ministry
- PWRDF Emergency Relief
- San Pancho Baby Clothes Project Newborn clothes for mothers in Mexico
- North Point Douglas Women's Centre
- Habitat for Humanity Providing lunch for builders
- Local Investment Toward Employment alternate Christmas hampers
- Grow Hope Project
Compassion for others and a passion for social justice undergird our choices of projects to support.
The Outreach Ministry Team exists to support the work of the congregation by:
- Keeping the lines of communication open and offering oversight regarding all outreach initiatives at St. Peter's
- Informing and engaging the congregation about outreach initiatives
- Discerning new initiatives
- Staying abreast of Diocesan and National Church initiatives
- Offering suggestions for financial donations
The committee meets bimonthly. Anyone interested in outreach ministries is encouraged to attend. For more information please contact the office at 204-488-9083.
