CHURCH OUT SERVING (COS)

OUR VISION:

A community that loves, and is transformed by it.

OUR MISSION:

Church Out Serving is a faith-based care network whose focus is to “love our neighbours.”

We do this with our actions, serving in practical ways, drawing together people who are committed to making a difference in our community.

OUR CORE VALUES:

As a care ministry that honours Jesus Christ, Church Out Serving is guided by these core values:

Faith-led – Because we believe that this ministry is inspired by God, prayer is at the foundation of our work, and our actions are a response to His guidance.

Compassion – Because we believe that all people are image bearers of God, we treat others with love, respect and dignity.

Community – Because we believe we are better together, we aspire to build healthy relationships and partnerships with our neighbours, in a safe environment.

Heart – Because we believe that serving is the expression of our other values, we seek to offer life giving help and hope, with humility, integrity and excellence.

OUR STORY

We believe that God is doing a work of grace here in our area, calling His Church to show His love in sincere and genuine ways.

In 2008, Christians from several churches worked together on a “Community Opportunity Scan” and wrote a report on the findings.  This report is available on request.

Since that time, through projects and partnerships with agencies, groups, churches, business and community leaders, and our county government, we are finding many opportunities to meet needs that were discovered in the Scan.

The needs were grouped into these 3 areas of focus:

Family Matters  –  Building Community  –  Overcoming Poverty

We are committed to love our neighbours, engage our culture and impact our community.

And we invite any who are interested in joining with us in this, to volunteer. Come, be part of the Church Out Serving.
