Through the support of missions, the people of Moore's Chapel, have the awesome opportunity to reach outside the walls of our church in the name of Jesus and change lives in our community, nation and world.
Through the giving of time, talents, prayers, and financial resources each one of you has touched many lives.
On the local level, we have extended our hands to many men, women and children in Cecil County who are homeless and downtrodden. Through partnering with The Ray of Hope Mission, The Wayfare House a division of The Meeting Ground, and The Cecil County Help Center, we have provided for the basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, as well as support and counseling and education to help these people get back on their feet.
We have helped The Pregnancy Crisis Center through the baby bottle drive. We have brightened the lives of the men and women at Calvert Nursing Home with Christmas gifts. The Candlelight Service offering has gone into a community fund to help with emergency needs in the immediate community such as heat, electricity etc.

At Christmas you assembled shoe boxes with toys and articles that will touch the hearts of less fortunate children and show them Jesus.
