St. George's Episcopal Church | Growing in Christ's Love and Service | 5520 Far Hills Avenue, Dayton Ohio  45429 | 937-434-1781

Service in the Community and the World is reaching out in Christ's love ...

 St. Georgeís engages in outreach to those in need in our local community and beyond, guided by our Baptismal Covenant and the Episcopal Millennium Development Goals.

 

Outreach Commission


The
Social Issues Committee examines the needs and concerns of those in the greater community and the world beyond our congregation and coordinates outreach ministries. The committee makes recommendations to the Vestry regarding outreach grants and sponsors the annual Spaghetti Supper and Rummage Sale which benefit outreach projects. Social Issues sponsors St. George's participation in Blanket Sunday, and community food collections. The activities of our Social Issues Commission raises the membersí awareness of community, regional, and worldwide needs and issues.  Some of the organizations funded by St. Geroge's include:

Alcoholics Anonymous

Blanket Sunday is one way St. George's partners with Church World Service.  The Tools of Hope & Blanket Program provides the right tools at the right time and makes a world of difference in the lives of people in need.  Blankets, tents, bedding, and other emergency supplies in the wake of natural disasters and human calamities are very real tools of hope.
