MIssion and Outreach Committee

Our mission is to spread the Word of the Gospel, the sacraments and God's Love and fellowship to the unsaved, unchurch, alienated and less fortunate members of the community of Dexter and surrounding areas through missions of the church. We also focus on providing opportunities for mission for our congregation.

Backpack Blessings is a mission of our congregation, which bears witness to God's Love by providing breakfast, lunch and snacks each weekend to school children in the Dexter School District who face food insecurities. Our goal is to supplement the meals that the children receive while not attending school. Backpack Blessings not only feeds the child, but all members of their household. Through this mission, not only food, but the unconditional love of Jesus is served by our many volunteers who use this opportunity to actively serve and share in ministry.

"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ," Galatians 6:2
