Outreach means to reach or go beyond: extend according to the dictionary.
Others in our church and community may not realize the way we at Epworth reach out and extend to our community. Therefore we would like tell you some of the projects we have been involved in, either in the past, present or future.
Thank you for your generous support of the food pantry. Your contributions of food have been used to feed many families n the area.

These are just some of the ways in which we reach out. Outreach can't be done by just one person or even a committee. It takes the help and support of everyone. There is always room for improvement and suggestions. If you would like to be part of the We Care Committee contact Paul Miller at 885-1379 for more information.
