Missions & Outreach Ministries

The people of CCE seek to be the heart and hands of Jesus by aligning our passions and strengths with organizations that work to meet the needs of our neighbors, both locally and internationally.  Throughout the Bible, we learn that God wants us to work for justice, especially for the vulnerable.  Justice and mercy are core values of what we strive to do in our service through Missions and Outreach.

The organizations we support have been looked at through this lens and include our four priorities of ending hunger, providing shelter, enhancing educational outcomes, and ensuring access to health care. Providing relief to the suffering is part of what we do, while also seeking opportunities for systemic, transformative change.

 SERVE ON A MISSION TRIP TO HAITI  
We have a long-standing relationship with two Episcopal parishes and their communities in Haiti. Our call to partner with and serve our brothers and sisters there continues! We are planning mission trips to Haiti and need hearts and hands to serve with us. Especially needed are doctors, PAs, RNs, NPs and anyone with medical experience -- but we also need folks to upgrade our partner schools and clinic. Trip timing will depend on availability and interest. If you’re interested in a mission trip to Haiti in 2019 or 2020, or in learning more about our partnerships, contact Penny Sellers, pennysellers@verizon.net.
