Mission and Social Justice

Our Mission Statement

Mission/Outreach is an integral part of VGCC ministries. We will pursue opportunities that are reflective of Justice and Peace, denominational and ecumenical, local and global, participatory and financial. Our mission and outreach will make a difference – empowering recipients and inspiring givers to act in the spirit of Christ; exemplifying the 3 Great Loves: Love of Neighbor; Love of Children; Love of Creation.

Mission Action Team

(Jeannie Harrington and Nancy Morlock-Hollins, Co-Chairs)

Our Mission Action Team is in the community. In September we walked in the Family Promise Walk to raise funds that directly benefit families with children experiencing homelessness in our community.

In October, many attended the Ally Up Annual Breakfast Fundraiser for Inside Out Youth Services.

We are gearing up to serve a few meals for the families in the Family Promise program.

Our Mission Action Team continues to use the 2nd and 4th Sundays for a Mission Reflection. We have been able to raise awareness of missions through these short talks along with our information tables.

Please join us! We meet after church on the last Sunday of the month.
