Outreach Committee

outreach committeeAbout The Outreach Committee
On behalf of the Parish, the Outreach Committee partners with the Philoptochos chapter to follow the Way from Matthew 25:35.

…For I was hungry and you gave Me food
…I was thirsty and you gave Me drink
…I was a stranger and you took Me in
…I was naked and you clothed Me
…I was in prison and you came to Me

The committee arranges multiple opportunities for Parish members to participate in outreach events:

To feed those who are physically hungry or may be spiritually unfulfilled, yearning, or uncertain about life’s purposes:
– Sack Lunch Program, 5th Fridays:  ~4 people, assemble and deliver 100 lunches
– Saturday Lunch (First Presbyterian, Evanston):  ~8 people, serve and clean up
– Senior Center Luncheon (Glenview): ~10 people, serve and entertain
– Blood drive (twice a year)

To provide drink to those who are physically thirsty or may be spiritually in need of refreshment:
