Outreach Ministry Team

God, through the Holy Spirit, has equipped each believer to serve Him within the Body of Christ through the distribution of spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 12:7).  At Macedonia, we believe these gifts can be best utilized through organized Ministry Teams.  The Outreach Ministry Team is made up of Christians who believe that God has given them the gifts of evangelism, serving, exhortation, showing mercy, and giving.  Members of this team are actively involved in developing, planning, and implementing events and activities that are designed to reach our community with the Good News of Jesus Christ.  This team is responsible for discovering new and exciting ways to introduce new members of the community to MBC.

C.A.R.E. NIGHT
The second Wednesday of each month is designated as C.A.R.E. Night at Macedonia. C.A.R.E. is an acronym for “Christians Actively Reaching Everyone.”  On C.A.R.E. Nights we reach out to those in our church family who need encouraging by sending cards, making phone calls, or visiting.  There is also a meal, signup the Sunday prior is required.   
Below are some of the ways we’ve reached out to our community:
  • Goodie baskets for teachers in our local schools
  • C.A.R.E. packages to military personnel
  • Treats for our local firefighters & law enforcement officers
  • Nursing home visits & gifts for residents
  • Homebound member visits & gifts
  • Road-side litter pick up
  • Projects for Hesed House of Hope
  • C.A.R.E. packages for College Students and Missionaries
COMMUNITY CANVASSING
The Outreach team helps to plan and organize community canvassing projects that promote special events and activities sponsored or associated with the various ministries at Macedonia.

THANKSGIVING HOME-BOUND MEALS
On Thanksgiving the Outreach team organizes the preparation and distribution of meals to the home-bound members in our church family.  This special day gives us a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Christ with others.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH EVENTS
The Outreach team plays an integral part in helping to plan and carry-out events designed to touch the community.  Our July 4th Celebration and Fall Festival are a couple of annual events where this team’s efforts are showcased.

SPECIAL PROJECTS
There are a number of special ministry projects that come up throughout the year.  The Outreach team is instrumental in making these opportunities for ministry known to our congregation.  In the past we’ve been able to partner with local church ministries like Christian Ministries of Lincoln County, East Lincoln Pregnancy Counseling Center, A.R.M. Mininstries.
