The Chapel Hills Outreach Program Features 

  • We recognize that we are blessed as a congregation and believe that sharing resources, be it time, money or materials is an expectation of us.

  • Dedicated financial funding for specific groups on an annual basis sourced from our operating budget.

Outreach & Social Justice 

  • Sandwich Making for the Homeless

  • Winter Hats & Mittens Drive

  • Refugee Kits with MN Council of Churches

  • Whenever possible, we strive to combine both education and personal engagement along with our gifts. We encourage neighborhood involvement.

  • In addition to not only “doing good for those in need”, we also try to engage in opportunities to support, advocate for and learn more about a variety of social justice issues.

  • We strongly support and welcome the LGBTQ community. 

  • We believe God expects us to be stewards of the environment and as a small token of support, we recently installed and maintain a rain garden.

  • Over the years, we have been actively involved with economic development (KIVA), scholarship sponsorships (Mexico) and youth homelessness (Minneapolis).
