Eastminster's Missional Work
Core Missional Targets
To reach out to organizations in our own community and around the world to assist people and communities with shelter, food and water. We have expanded our missional targets to now include educational materials and supplies as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our annual budget is $30,600. The following organizations are recipients of our mission budget(CITA, Community of Hope, United Way, Sower’s Field, Brevard Indian River Mission, Daily Bread, Pregnancy Resources, Seafarer’s Ministry, Space Coast Center for Women and Children, the Sharing Center, His Place, African Dream Project, Habitat for Humanity, Pridmore Center, Madagascar Missionary Projects, Nana’s House, St Stephen’s Way and Unique People with Purpose.
In the past two years, we have also had a Mission Match in which a family of the church has contributed $25,000 annually and the congregation has generously matched this amount. In 2020, we raised approximately $49,000 through this initiative. The recipients of these funds are the Madagascar Mission Project, Second Harvest Food Bank, Daily Bread, Habitat for Humanity and the Interfaith Food Distribution Drive, and we will also be using some of the funds in December to provide Christmas gifts to families, individuals and especially children in Brevard County through an initiative that we will be promoting after Consecration Sunday known as the Joy of Christmas.
Eastminster Presbyterian Church also has two other mission-oriented funds during the year. The Women’s Tea event raised over $4,400 for the Dock in Brevard County. The other fund is the Samaritan Fund which provides assistance to individuals and families in need at our church. (Managed by the church itself.) Approximately $2,500 have been distributed from this fund in 2020.
We have food drives and educational material drives throughout the year in which our members donate products through the church as well.
