Helping to Serve our Communities Local and Beyond

Reaching out beyond our doors is a key part of the work and mission of South Congregational Church. Just a few of the many, varied outreach activities include:

  • Regular hands-on volunteering at Bon Appetit, a soup kitchen in Biddeford

  • Supporting the local Habitat for Humanity through direct labor as well as financial gifts

  • Collecting clothing, warm items an gift cards to be distributed through Grace Street Ministry, in Portland

  • Supporting Caring Unlimited through a team’s participation in Ellie’s Walk as well as financial gifts

  • Financial support for a student at a girls’ school in Kenya

  • Knitting hats and mittens for students in the local schools

  • Providing assistance and a welcome to a refugee family as they settle into the area

  • An alternative gift-giving program at Christmas that includes a dozen varied charities

  • And so many other organizations and activities, including new opportunities each year

Your participation is encouraged! The Outreach Committee is always eager to find ways for interested people to participate in ongoing activities, or to explore possible new programs that the church could support. Participating in the church’s wide outreach efforts is a meaningful and rewarding part church membership.
