Each month, we designate a local, national, or international ministry as our “Outreach Partner of the Month.” Usually, members of the parish are already involved somehow in the ministry. We educate ourselves about the work of the ministry, invite representatives to come and speak about it, and distribute literature.
During each Sunday service, the ushers pass the offering basins to collect pledges and other monetary gifts of the people. All loose cash and coin placed in the offering basins not designated for church or other specific use is immediately donated to the Outreach Partner of that month.
