About Teen Outreach
The Teen Outreach Committee was created as a way for the teen members of St. Elizabeth's Church to reach out to the community. We raise money which we invest to different organizations and use to take part in different activities hosted by organizations.
Helping those who are less fortunate through outreach is an important part of the church mission, and the opportunity to learn and serve will yield positive benefits to both those individuals and organizations benefitted as well as teen outreach members. In addition, the teens in the congregation who choose to participate will learn valuable life lessons and experience.
