Outreach

Ministry of Luke

We have volunteers to facilitate any needs that someone in our Community might have. This could range from providing meals, visiting the sick, providing transportation and whatever is needed.

Tithing

Spirit of Peace gives at least 15% of its monthly income to a needy group or individual. The Community decided to give most donations to people who would otherwise not have the necessary resources to get through a one-time crisis. You’re invited to make suggestions to the Community Council as to recipients of this donation. We also work with the YWCA, Providence Center, First Call for Help (dial 211) and the Missoula County Helath Department to help the needy.

Contingency

We have a contingency fund which helps Spirit of Peace members (or their families) who are in need. We have purchased plane tickets, helped with housing, and medical expenses.

Family Promise

We are involved with Family Promise which provides housing at the Meadow Lark for families who are in need of a temporary home. We volunteer by assisting with meals on a rotating basis with other groups. We have a coodinator and liaison with Missoula Interfaith Collaboration and a coordinator for bathroom supply donations for families moving into new residences.

Community Council

Members-at-large and coordinators make up the Community Council. The consensus method is used to make decisions. The Council meets as needed. The meetings are open to all Community members.
