Outreach Ministry

Outreach Committee

The Outreach Committee selects a Mission of the Month for each month of the year.  Loose offering from the offering plates plus designated Mission Fund donations are collected and sent to the chosen mission of that month.  Their selections support local, regional, national and global missions.

Catfish Days Booth

During the Catfish Days Flea Market, the last Saturday of July, there will be a booth to provide information about the church and offer a sweet treat to visitors.

Kuzma Care Cottage

Kuzma is a local food pantry that is a community-wide mission started by St. Rose Catholic church.  On the first Sunday of every month, a special collection is taken during worship to support the work of Kuzma Care Cottage.  Many of our church members regularly work a shift at the Cottage to distribute food to those having a difficult time.

Our Caring Closet

Our Caring Closet is a clothes ministry that was started in our church and out-grew the space.  They offer free clothing and small household items to those in the community who could use some extra assistance.  Yearly, the congregation collects new socks and underwear for the Closet’s distribution prior to school starting. Several of our members work at the Closet on a regular basis.

Christian Help Association

CHA or Christian Help Association is a community-wide organization that operates during Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter to provide extra food for members of the community in need.  Our church purchases, in bulk, several items to be included in the Christmas food baskets, as well as having a gift tag tree for toy donations, and help collect coats, mittens and hats.  At the same time, our Sunday School children collect a new book for each of the children up to age 17 whose families receive assistance. Many members assist with packing and distribution of these items ahead of Christmas.
