Local, National, & Global Outreach Committee
Southminster's Local, National, & Global Outreach Committee (LNGO) is an active, multi-generational group working together to share our passion for faith in action in the world. This passion has long been a marker of Southminster people.
The LNGO Committee is committed to raising awareness and providing information about social issues on all levels: GLOBAL, NATIONAL and LOCAL.
Mission and Service
On the global and national levels, LNGO promotes awareness of the United Church of Canada (UCC) Mission and Service Fund (M&S). This important program supports many service ventures in Canada and around the world. At Southminster, the LNGO group leads our annual fund-raising commitment for the M&S Fund and shares information about M&S during worship and in congregational activities.
United Church of Canada Concerns
The LNGO Committee also pays attention to other international matters of concern to the United Church of Canada.
At the national level, LNGO continues to respond to matters of social justice.
Most recently the committee wrote a letter to the Federal Government to express its distress over the Government’s decisions to radically cut spending on Aboriginal health care,
Through the LNGO Committee, Southminster has become a supporter of Dignity for All: a Campaign for a Poverty-Free Canada .
Locally, LNGO leads Southminster’s ongoing support of community outreach partnerships and justice-seeking programs and activities that include:
