Serving the larger Community
Siesta Key Chapel members contribute financially and volunteer with many agencies as part of a core Mission Outreach program. Involvement with these agencies can be direct or indirect. If you would like to become involved and volunteer, please contact our office.
Most of these agencies are only able to survive because of their volunteers. Volunteer shifts can be as short as an hour a week, and we hope you find in your heart to participate. We can tell you from experience, you will be glad you did.
Other ways we connect to our neighbors: Community Outreach.
Community Outreach at Siesta Key Chapel provides information and services needed in the local community. Siesta Key Chapel wants to be a good neighbor and partner in sharing God's blessings with those around us. As written in Matthew 5:16, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
Mission News: February 23rd, 2019
Roger Sandt, the chair of the Community Outreach Committee, recently journeyed to Honduras on a week-long medical mission trip with Central American Relief Efforts (CARE), a non-profit with a close relationship with First Presbyterian, Lancaster PA (Roger’s home church).
Complete medical examinations will be performed on over 1,000 patients in a four-day period and prescriptions will be written and filled within an hour after examinations.Some of the patients are in their 70s and 80s, who must walk on rock and stone streets strewn with deep ruts which are not fit for cars let alone poorly-covered feet.
And, yet, they come because this is their only medical-care option.
Be sure to thank Roger for all he does for the underprivileged he meets along the way, no matter who or where.
