Approximately 10% of our annual budget is committed to ministry beyond our congregation. A portion of those funds go to the Disciples Mission Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to support ministries in partnership with other Disciples congregations and our ecumenical brothers and sisters. The rest is used to support outreach efforts in the Norwalk community and beyond.
During the year there are also six Special-Day offerings that are received that is “over and above” giving to designated ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Our congregation also supports numerous other outreach projects including an Angel Tree at Christmas, Heifer Project, and giving of food and money to our local food pantry. We have also “adopted” a cabin at our Christian Conference Center in Newton, IA
The Norwalk Christian Church coordinates the volunteers for the local Meals on Wheels program delivering noon, weekday meals to predominately older, less mobile or shut-in residents. This is a vital ministry to our community and new drivers are always welcome.
