Carter-Westminster doing Mission
Carter-Westminster engages in various mission effort and projects, two of which are centered on the request Jesus made to his disciples, then and now: “You give them something to eat.” Mark 6:37
On the First Monday of each month we make sandwiches (a lot of sandwiches!) for The Night Ministry of Chicago. The Night Ministry works to provide housing, health care, and human connection to members of our community who are struggling with poverty or homelessness.
Every 5th Tuesday of the month (whichever months of the year have a 5th Tuesday) our Deacons sponsor and work with the Community Kitchen at A Just Harvest – which serves a nutritious dinner 365 days a year to anyone in need. Our Deacons and other volunteers prepare the meal in our church kitchen, pack the food in our van, transport it and help serve it at the Community Kitchen.
Carter-Westminster also supports the Irving Park Community Food Pantry – with food, fund, and volunteers. Food is collected on Sunday mornings to help stock the pantry shelves.
If you are interested in volunteering to help with these mission projects, or wish to donate to them, please contact the church at 847-673-4441 or email Kathi at the church office.
On Monday June 6 our Mission Committee and others worked to make sandwiches to support The Night Ministry of Chicago. Check out these pictures of our faithful “sandwich-making” Presbyterians!
And here is Pastor Ken, working to fix one of the church ovens. We think he should keep his day job!
