Grant Request Information

“This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.” – 2 Corinthians 9:12

Our Mission
The mission of outreach at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church is to model the love of Christ by helping the underserved, the disadvantaged and others broken by life’s circumstances. While providing immediate needs such as food, clothing and shelter, outreach volunteers also offer service, emotional and spiritual support. Funding is targeted toward Christian programs in the greater Houston area, particularly those with opportunities for our volunteers to build relationships through hands-on involvement.
