Local Outreach Committee

We are committed to loving and serving people in the name of Jesus.  Outreach is not a project, plan, or simply a day you circle on your calendar.  It is not a task, but involves a conversation with the lonely, kindness to the stranger, and acts of service to the needy.  It often requires sacrifice and compels an individual to move beyond their comfort zone.  Outreach is a lifestyle.  At St Giles, we are committed to seeing corporate outreach carried out together as a body of believers.  However, we also believe that outreach should go beyond the confines of organized structure and into the the schools, neighborhoods, and workplaces of individual believers.  Ultimately, outreach is a lifestyle. We are committed to providing opportunities for the body to serve the needs of the local community.  We are also committed to encouraging the body to making outreach a part of their lifestyle.  Finally, we are committed to seeing the body adequately equipped to do the works of ministry of outreach.

Here are a few current outreach partnerships

  • Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry
  • Love INC
  • Pregnancy Resource CenterClippers1
  • Samaritan’s Purse “Operation Christmas Child” shoe box ministry
  • Room in the Inn is a ministry that partners with local churches to provide food and shelter to homeless people during the winter months.  Churches offer a warm, safe place to sleep, serves three meals (dinner, breakfast and bag lunch) and then return guests the following morning to uptown Charlotte.  The program is a unique way for people of faith to become directly involved with people who are homeless.  St. Giles is pleased to partner with St. Andrew’s UMC to provide meals for homeless guests.
