Ministry and Outreach

Throughout the year, church youth are encouraged to be involved with Ministry work. During the Christmas season, youth are invited to participate in Operation Christmas Child by filling shoe boxes for underprivileged children.

This past year, our children and youth worked with a local homeless facility, Program Reach. They raised funds and sponsored a family night, providing a PDQ dinner, crafts, face paining, balloon creations, and more. Another family night is planned for the fall of 2019.

This fall, Chapel youth have been collecting and packaging hygiene items for Bahamian families effected by hurricane Dorian.
