The mission of the Outreach Committee at EFC Newport is two-fold: first, to carry forth the Word to those that may not know Jesus usually referred to as “The Great Commission” (Matthew 28:16-20) and second, to conduct acts that mirror the acts of Jesus. This includes service wherever the need exists.
- Our Outreach program has three distinct areas of activity. They are:
- Local Evangelism and Church Growth
- Service Programs
- We have numerous Outreach programs underway now. Some are complex and require participation of the entire church while some are suitable for some groups or individuals just wanting to make a difference. They are summarized below. Moreover, we always have a need for leadership within the committee.
- Soup Kitchen
- Meets once a month at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Newport
- Feeds on average 50 men, women and children
- Volunteers needed for cooking, serving, cleanup
- InterVarsity @ Roger Williams University & University of Rhode Island
- College student outreach
- If any of the above events interests you (or you have an idea for a new outreach effort) please contact the church at 847-1490.
