[thus said the Lord], "for I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me." the righteous will then answer him, "When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we ever see you a stranger and welcome you in our homes or naked and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?" The King will reply, "I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!"
~ Matthew 25:35-40 ~
Our Mission Statement
The purpose of this committee shall be to extend Christian compassion and helpfulness to the ill, the aged, the orphaned, the underprivileged, the imprisoned and in general, to persons of all ages in need of aid in body or soul. We shall strive to enlist in these efforts to as many as possible of the individual members and organizations of the congregation. We shall further have the duty to study conditions, primarily in the local community, in order to bring cleansing and healing light of Christian truth to bear upon critical problems through thoughtful Christian discussion of facts and issues.
