Is to embrace our community with the love of Christ reflecting in the church the cultural diversity of the community believing that We are all created by God.
To reach our community with kindness and compassion to share the love of Jesus not only with words, but with actions (” faith without work is dead”, James 2:14-26). We accomplish our mission by partnering and collaborating with the community, churches and our congregation.
It is an exciting outreach ministry that is highly relational. It is an opportunity to engage the community of all ages, discover the presence of Jesus in different scenarios, and to relay the greatest story ever told. The language of love, kindness, compassion and genuine concern is universal. Spanish and perfection are not required.

The Hispanic Outreach has been in existence since 2009 primarily in Cabrillo Village. Since then we lead the Fall Mission 2010 at Cabrillo Village with six days of activities with the participation of our congregation. We have distributed clothes and spread the gospels in their laundry rooms and whenever is possible. We have several movie nights for the kids a year, free Book Fairs and a Health Fair partnered with Clinicas Del Camino Real in 2012. Las Posadas” in 2012 and 2013. We have a tutorial program lead by Rich Smith and Millie Macavoy every Tuesday from 3:45 pm to 5:00 pm for 5th through 8th grade helping them with their homework. We have about 10 to 12 kids every Tuesday at their recreation center.
AUGUST 5, 2017 SANTA PAULA
It was a great day to build relationships with other churches from the area and the community. The Hispanic Outreach had the opportunity to serve and bless the community and sharing God’s love in a tangible way. Our table provided for the children face painting, drawing games, and water coloring, but most of all the opportunity to show love and smiles.
“For we are God’s handiworkcreated in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do”
