Serve in the Neighborhood

You are the light of the world. … Let your light shine before others.”

Matthew 5:14 and 16a

We are a missional church. Because God is on a mission to give life to people and transform the world, we too do mission. God is seeking a people who will join Him in healing the brokenness in our lives, our communities, and around the world.

Whether it is in our church and neighborhood, or in our city of Milwaukee, or beyond the city around the world, there are many ways for you to serve and participate in God’s mission with us. Check out opportunities to serve with us. You’ll find yourself being a part of something greater than yourself when you serve others.

Food Collection

food

Our Missions Team sponsors a food drive from the 3rd Sunday – 4th Sunday of each month (except November). Bring non-perishable food items to church anytime during that period and drop them into the boxes in the Jones Narthex (we welcome donations anytime, place food in the barrel near the elevator). The food is then taken to the United Methodist Children’s Services food pantry. A monthly list of food needed at the pantry will be printed in the Sunday Bulletin on the 3rd Sunday services of each month.

God's Love in Action

The FaithWorks team has adopted the motto of “God’s love in action” inspired by the words of Mother Teresa in her book, The Simple Path. We are faithfully involved with the following community outreach services: Northcott Neighborhood House, United Methodist Children’s Services, Milwaukee Rescue Mission, Homebound Care for our own church, MacCanon Brown’s ongoing ministry for the Homeless, and Salvation Army.

Our group has sponsored community chats with the directors and volunteer coordinators of the organizations listed above in order to learn more about the needs of the communities they serve daily. As a result, we have a new vision of our group to build bridges that will connect us to the greater Milwaukee community where we can begin to fill the great commission beyond the walls of our church.

We are ready and willing to serve in whatever capacity we are called!

T-Shirts

Long-sleeve t-shirts with the FaithWorks logo are available for purchase. There are children’s and adult sizes. The cost per shirt is $20. They can be purchased in the church office or at FaithWorks.
