The Outreach Committee is really the entire Galilee congregation. Outreach activities support people in our own congregation as well as local and international communities.
Galilee Community: We address the needs of our own congregation on an individual basis. If someone in the congregation has a need, or knows of a member in need, they can contact the committee or the pastor. At Christmas we honor some of our senior members with a special gift as well as providing gift certificates to Target or Cub to some families.
Local Community: This ministry addresses the needs of our greater metro community by supporting various programs such as:
World Community: This ministry addresses the needs of our world through support of individuals and organizations which serve the Lord at an international level including:
- Michael Lundell, a missionary in Romania
- Bega Kwa Bega, Uhominyi ministry in Tanzania (members of Galilee also privately sponsor students in secondary boarding schools).
- ELCA Disaster Response to help families through floods and tornados, and other natural disasters.
