Our Church. Our Community. Our World.
Our Community Outreach Programs
The Outreach Committee is responsible for providing and maintaining effective programs of outreach of the Church and is concerned with providing for the Church’s mission to the individual members of the Church family, the community and to the world.
The committee is also responsible for providing opportunities for Church members to be personally involved in showing Christ’s love to those in need and administering the outreach budget of the church and respond to special requests for funds (primarily from organizations).
The committee fulfills these needs of the Church family by maintaining awareness of the moral and social issues or practices of concern to the Christian Church and by keeping generally informed of the individual needs of the Church family.
Additional functions include developing programs and courses of action believed reasonable and necessary to fulfill the Church’s obligation with respect to missionary and benevolent concerns.
For more information about our outreach programs or to become a volunteer, email us at outreach@stphilipsjax.org.

Addressing Citywide Concerns
iCare
