Missions & Outreach: What We Do

Outreach

 

We cook

On the third Thursday of each month, we gather in our kitchen to prepare a meal, then transport it to Lazarus House in Lawrence, where we serve and share it with clients who need our support.  view calendar to sign up

 

We walk

ACC's Junior High Youth Fellowship joins other CROP Hunger Walk participants in Concord each October to raise money to help stop hunger around the world.

 

We give

Each Christmas, many ACC members choose an ornament from our Mitten Tree and  purchase gifts for:
      - Acton Council on Aging
      - Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association of Greater Lowell
      - Lazarus House Ministries, Inc.
      - Massachusetts Department of Family and Child Services

Each Christmas, we fill bags with necessities for inmates at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Concord.  www.concordprisonoutreach.org

Each Christmas, we fill shoeboxes with toys and necessities for children from third world countries as part of Operation Christmas Child, a mission project of Samaritan's Purse.

We hold food drives within the congregation to provide nonperishable food to Mount Calvary Community Supper and Food Pantry.

 

We ring bells

Look for us outside area supermarkets in November and December as we ring bells for the Salvation Army.

 

We build

ACC members have helped build homes with Habitat for Humanity North Central Massachusetts.
