Striving for justice and peace, and seeking to serve Christ in the world, our parish Outreach seeks to mutually transform and empower lives through hands-on service and by sharing resources with our neighbors, both locally and globally.
Mission & Outreach Committee Meeting
Mission and Outreach Steering Committee
The M & O Steering Committee helps to manage and monitor the outreach programs supported by Epiphany leader/volunteers. A major function is to allocate and manage the funds voted for outreach by the Vestry in the annual budget. The committee is responsible for communicating with the parish about our programs and volunteer opportunities, always striving to engage more parishioners in mission
All parishioners are invited to attend our meetings. We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month in the Suter Room to initiate special programs, invite new members, monitor our budget, review and approve grant applications and plan regular communication to the parish. If you enjoy making a difference in the world and would like to be involved, please contact Celia Ceruolo or Carol Hollingshead.Mission and Outreach Quick View
Caring for your resources
The 2016 annual budget allocated 6.95% of anticipated revenue to Mission & Outreach. The Mission & Outreach Steering Committee has allocated 90% of this amount to be given to the programs that we support, and 10% to be available for grant requests. In the interest of fairness, programs that are supported by the most parishioners receive the most money.2017 Mission and Outreach Budget
Our grants are distributed on an “as needed” basis for emergency or one time needs only. The request must be submitted on the below form, following the guidelines. The committee will review and vote on the request in a timely manner.
