Outreach Commission


The Outreach Commission oversees all aspects of the local outreach ministry for Community Mennonite Church.  The Outreach Commission will deal primarily with ongoing programs at CMC with an eye to local needs and how to best meet the needs of the community.

The primary assignment for the Outreach Commission will monitor and improve upon what is being done locally and to keep CMC members informed of needs and concerns. The Outreach Commission will resource and give counsel to the various committees and representatives who regularly report to the commission.  The Outreach Commission will process and develop recommendations for Church Council  (but not make final decisions) on matters that pertain to the committees and representatives related to the commission.
