Missions & Social Action Committee

As the congregation is committed to allocating 25% of the annual operating budget to mission and outreach, the Mission and Social Action (MSA) Committee’s main responsibility is to facilitate this process through grants to local and international programs.  Our congregation currently supports five local programs:

  1. The Open Door Shelter in Norwalk, which serves homeless and working poor individuals and families
  2. Shelter for the Homeless in Stamford, serving homeless men
  3. Pilgrim Towers in Stamford, an apartment complex for seniors living on a low, fixed income
  4. Pivot Ministries in Norwalk and Bridgeport, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for men
  5. Re-Entry Ministry in Bridgeport, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program for women.

In addition to these local organizations, our congregation also has ongoing relationships with the Maasai and Daystar University in Nairobi, Kenya.  We have partnered with the Maasai for many years on a variety of projects, as well as sponsored two students at Daystar.

MSA is comprised of 8 members, chaired by a Deacon and with one Trustee member.  Members commit to a three year term, are nominated to serve by the congregation’s Nominating and Governance Committee, and elected by the congregation.
