Outreach at Aquia Church
Members coordinate the wide array of outreach work that this parish supports. This ensures focus, avoids duplication of effort, seeks and discerns new callings for outreach by our parish, and prepares recommendations for the Vestry regarding the allocation of parish funds designated for outreach. Local outreach includes GED/Headstart, SERVE ( Stafford County outreach), American Red Cross, Stafford Ministerial Association, Fredericksburg Area Foodbank, and Hope House. Regional and national outreach includes our annual parish-wide mission trip led by the Youth Group, Kairos Prison Ministries, Exodus Ministries, Red Lake Nation in Minnesota, and the Jackson-Field Home. International outreach includes Our Little Roses in Honduras, Young Life in Germany, the Diocese of Kigezi, Five Talents (microloans for new businesses in developing nations), the Diocese of Haiti, Operation Christmas Child, and Episcopal Relief & Development. The Outreach Committee looks for persons with a heart for Christ who are committed to being the hands and feet of the Body of Christ. Faith in action can be manifested in outreach. Parishioners who are interested in bringing focus and energy to our efforts and who can prayerfully contribute to this ministry are invited to participate in this joyful ministry.
We are hosting our Annual Craft Show and Pig Roast on Saturday May 9th 2015 from 9am-2pm.
