Community Outreach
We contribute from our monthly financial collections to a local, national, or international group chosen by our congregation. We often invite representatives of these groups to speak to us so that we can learn of their work and support them with prayer. The topics of our Wednesday meeting readings from the Bible and Science and Health often address these issues from a spiritual standpoint.

We have tithed to the Boys and Girls Club of San Juan Capistrano, The Gang Prevention Task Force, Laura's House (shelter for battered women), San Juan Capistrano Public Library, and Mainstream Recovery Group (a residential treatment center for recovering substance abusers).

Recipients receive our financial support for 1-3 months. Some organizations have received ongoing support throughout the year, such as Family Assistance Ministries, which helps women and children get back on their feet.

This Church supports CREER (Spanish for “to believe) in its mission to “develop children, youth, and families through educational, health, cultural, sports and leadership programs.” Our prayers, our tithing and our involvement constitute that support.

Since 2006, a group of 20 teens and adults have built houses for a family in need in Tijuana, through the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) “Homes of Hope” organization.  Click here for more information on this year's missions.

Our church has been actively supporting the Ngochoni Petals of Africa School since 1997 with prayer, book donations, and financial contributions.  The school's mission is "to impart knowledge to children, including less fortunate ones, in a sound environment maintaining high moral and academic standards."  The Headmistress, Administrator and Treasurer of the school are class-taught Christian Scientists and natives of Kenya.  In 2014, 176 students are attending pre-kindergarten through eight grade classes. Donations, earmarked “Petals School,” are
welcome.  Click here for more information about the school.

Our church has also supported members who are active in their communities helping the Navajo community in northern Arizona, Marine Corps recruits in San Diego, and persecuted ethnic hill tribes in Burma (Myanmar), where we provided two satellite communication systems to help raise awareness about injustice in Burma. We support each of these efforts on an ongoing basis through prayer and, when appropriate, through donations.  Donations for the Burma effort can be earmarked “Burma Matters.”

We also have been sending useful items (phone cards, books, magazines, CDs, personal items, etc.) to United States soldiers on rest and rehabilitation at Camp Assayliyah in Qatar in the Middle East.
