OutreachThe work of the Outreach Committee is based on developing relationships with local, national, and international social service/social justice organizations and supporting them, financially and with our labor when appropriate, in their work to help others survive and prosper. This is in accordance with the Vision Statement of Second Congregational Church of Boxford:

“God has given each individual unique and diverse gifts. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to use these gifts in service of God, ministering to those in need for the benefit of all creation.”

The Outreach Committee works with and supports other church committees to create Outreach opportunities for all the members of our church to share their gifts and to make a difference in the lives of others. We are responsible for:

*     determining the organizations that the church supports financially through our annual budget allocation;

*     providing educational opportunities that enable both children and adults to learn about the work of the organizations we support;

*     encouraging members of the congregation to be involved directly as volunteers;

*     providing guidance and directions in supporting the United Church of Christ’s benevolent opportunities; and,

*     offering timely opportunities to aid others to survive and recover from disasters that occur locally, national, and internationally.
