The Community Outreach Ministry shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone, through personal witnessing, and Word of God. It provides spiritual, educational, and social events and activities throughout for the community to promote Godly relationships. The ministry equips individuals to serve one another; within their families, and the communities. Matthew 28:18 – 20 & Acts 1:8
The Community Outreach Ministry
Reaches individuals who are incarcerated, hospitalized, institutionalized, and those in need of the gospel outside of a traditional church setting.
Leads by example, a lifestyle that demonstrates what it means to be a Christian (follower of Christ)
Teaches the Word of God in order to provide clear instructions and guidelines necessary to the develop the character and qualities of Jesus Christ. Teaching all to be responsible for ones’ actions, accountable to others, and the importance of serving the needs of others as the true leadership trademarks.
Disciple individuals in a manner that encourages a pursuit of the newfound relationship with Jesus Christ, while emphasizing the significance of committing and connecting with the local church.
Outreach is serving, encouraging, giving and showing mercy (Romans 12), just as the Good Samaritan showed “mercy” to the man who was beaten, stripped, robbed and left for dead (Luke 10). Outreach is a different act of worship, or spiritual sacrifice, from preaching and teaching, but equally as valid.
The ushers and greeters are members chosen to reflect the warmth and welcome of Christ himself; conscious of Christ’s words "For I was...a stranger and you welcomes me," (Matthew 25:35)
We believe that we are called to be Doorkeepers of the House of the Lord. Our goal is to serve God’s people by greeting, directing, and assisting members and others in a friendly and hospitable manner. And assist during offering, distribute programs, and assist in the case where emergencies may arise.
For a day in thy courts Is better than a thousand.
I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God,
Than to dwell in the tents of the wickedness. (Psalm 84:10)

endures forever--do not abandon the works of your hands. (Psalm 138:8) ~NIV

beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavouring to keep the Unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body, and one Spirit,
even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; (Ephesians 4:1-4)

FOUNDATION for CHRISTIAN LIFE
Further the Knowledge of the People
Model Sunday School
Sunday School is the best-structured agency of the church for effectively delivering the teaching ministry of Christ. The Unity aspects involved is its vital arm to 1) caring, 2) reaching, 3) teaching and 4) winning disciples for God’s purpose. The Sunday Schools function is defined as caring for the people spiritually, reaching people to teach them, and winning their hearts to Christ.
Deuteronomy 31:12 says, “Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:”. This verse reflects Unity of Faiths’ four distinct “areas” of its Sunday School ministry.
- Sunday school is the arm of the church that provides spiritual care to all its members, to “carefully observe all the words of the law.” Maturing and/or nurturing.
- The Sunday school is the arm that reaches people of all ages for Christ – to make
contact, with the people and motivating them to honestly listen to the gospel. Note
that those who gather are identified as fathers, mothers, little ones or children, and the
- Sunday school is the teaching arm of the church. “Teaching” to guide with learning
activities that meet the needs of the members. The Deuteronomy verse conveys that
step through the words “that they may hear,” - “that they may learn.”
- Sunday School is also the arm of the church that wins people to Christ. “Winning”
entails communicating the gospel in an understandable approach and motivating a
person to respond to Christ. In the Old Testament the expression “fear the Lord”
means to bring a person to reverential trust of God - a concept of salvation. The
description of a person today is one who “fear[s] the LORD”, as a person who receives
Christ, or trusts the Lord, for salvation.
