Outreach

    “We, for our part, will devote ourselves to prayer and to serving the word.”  — Acts 6:4

     

    As our church community continues to grow and welcome in new people we need times to get together and know one another as well as serving the community in Brooklyn where we are. Outreach functions best when it is lay-led; we often wait for our ministers to tell us how to serve others. At Holy Apostles we encourage you to bring outreach opportunities to the community, this is how our service at Masbia started 2 years ago. Have an idea for outreach that you would like to lead and see happen?

    Give a Family Christmas • Advent 2019

    As we reflect on the abundance in our lives and all the gifts that God has given us, especially around Christmas, it is a opportune time for us to give to others. For a few years, we have been working with SCO Family Services during the holidays to give Christmas gifts to families with one member who has a serious medical condition. SCO Family Services is a large non-profit organization that runs programs for children and families who have less financial stability than most of us. Names and ages of children are available in mid-November and gifts, wrapped and labeled are due at the church December 1. Questions? Please speak with Kallen Tsikalas or Email Community Outreach.
