In keeping with Faith United’s mission statement of “Know God, Grow in Faith, Serve Others”, the goal of the Mission Ministry team is to provide as many and varied opportunities as possible to serve our brothers and sisters in our local community and around the world. We attempt to complement the individual charitable initiatives that are near and dear to our congregants’ hearts with opportunities for mission projects that bring us together in fellowship. 

We are always reminded of Paul’s words in II Corinthians 9:7, which tell us that “"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver" as we look for ways for the Faith United community to be cheerful givers - of both their time and monetary contributions. To that end, we have several special offerings throughout the year to support various causes. These include:

 

Dakota Partnership                                                   Love INC

One Great Hour of Sharing                                      Christmas Joy Offering

Kentucky Mission Trip                                               Food Resource Bank

Feed My Starving Children                                       Together We Cope

Tinley Park Food Pantry                                           Jones Center

Presbyterian Disaster Relief                                     Grace Seeds Ministry

BEDS

The Mission Ministry team continually works with the Faith United congregation to identify carefully the opportunities for service that match our interests and abilities, to allow us enthusiastically to experience the fulfillment and joy that comes with serving others, and to seek humbly and prayerfully to glorify God in this ministry.
