According to the Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church, "outreach ministries" include addressing racial and other societal issues, assisting the poor and needy, supporting higher education and campus ministries, promoting health and welfare, promoting unity among Christians, and examining and improving the status and role of women in the church. The Outreach committee supports congregational and community organizations.
The outreach committee answers or reports to the Church Council. The Book of Discipline establishes the Church Council as the administrative body of the local charge, which is the local church or a group of local churches served by the same minister. The Church Council is responsible for overseeing outreach and other programs and ministries of the local church or charge.
The committee members typically are nominated or recruited by the nominations committee at the church.
The committee at Trinity United Methodist Church promotes the local CROP Walk, Operation Inasmuch, Treats for Troops, and the Christmas Giving Tree, just to name a few. Volunteers are always welcome to help. For more information, please contact the church office, 989-
