Benevolence/Outreach Ministry

 

outreach ministries

Jesus said, “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:34-40)

Few themes are stressed more often in the Bible than helping those who are facing difficulties. We share the love of Christ by offering assistance through a variety of programs and special activities.

At Lincoln Park, we are a church that is dedicated to helping people.  Jesus has called each of us to look out for the needs of one another.  The goal of our Benevolence program at the Lincoln Park Church of Christ is to show kindness, compassion, generosity, and goodwill to those in our surrounding community who need help. We have several programs in place to help address the needs of the church and the community.

There are many ways to be involved in this ministry to find out more,
