Welcome to Outreach ! We hope you will take a few minutes to view this DVD and become familiar with our many projects at Nativity. The Outreach Committee is charged with responding to the needs of those outside our parish family. In addition to basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing, we see our scope as addressing a variety of other needs. The Adult Learning Center, for example, assists those interested in learning to read and those preparing to take the GED. We have adopted the residents of the Russell Erskine apartments and provide fellowship projects to make their lives more pleasant. This year we started Greene Street Market, offering local growers a place to sell their wares and offering the community a wonderful place to spend a summer Thursday evening. The Outreach Committee is open to any and all who share our passion for working to make things better. Please join us, the first Tuesday of each month, when we meet to discuss our projects. Outreach has long been an important part of the ministry at Nativity and the Vestry typically assigns about 10% of the budget for Outreach efforts Wayne Laney Outreach Chair Church of the Nativity The slideshow will advance automatically.
