Board of Mission & Ministry
The Board of Mission and Ministry is responsible for the special access of Social Ministry and Local and World Mission.
The Board assists the congregation in organizing an effective ministry to the community. Ongoing ministry projects include Eastern Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministry, Pregnancy Care Center and The Corner Table.
Eastern Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministry (ECCM) This organization brings together the resources of the Christian community to serve the people in need of crisis assistance, support and education. Many area churches are members. Each year, the first week in May, our congregation is responsible for providing volunteers to work at ECCCM. Church members are also urged to volunteer at ECCCM anytime they can helping bag food, sort clothes or whatever needs doing. A food tree is kept in the transept area of the church year round where members can place donated items. Frequent bulleting inserts remind members of the constant need for food. This food is transported to ECCCM on a regular basis by a board member.
Pregnancy Care Center (PCC) is an organization that exists to uphold the sanctity of human life by demonstrating the love of Christ to women facing crisis pregnancies through the provision of spiritual, physical and emotional support, and by proclaiming the Gospel to the community-at-large by promoting a Biblical view of sex and marriage through education.
Occasionally we help them with their quarterly newsletter mailing or some other project with which they need assistance. A small crib is kept in the transept area where members can place donated items. A board member transports these items to PCC on a regular basis.
The Corner Table is a Soup Kitchen outreach ministry provided by the people of the community for the hungry in the community. Their primary purpose is to provide nutritious meals in a comfortable environment for any men, women or children in need. Food left over from various church events is donated to the corner Table. Church Members also make food donations.
