The Welfare Ministry is a huge ministry that has to do with hospitality. The purpose of welfare is to help members of the church to become self-reliant and to care for the poor and needy in the church, and also reaching out to those in our community (e.g. the Orphans, sick, homeless & widows.) Wo do visitations (i.e. we visit the sick, new, current and old members, etc.), event planning (e.g. baby showers, picnics, weddings, etc.), community outreach, and pray for families, the needy and the sick.
The welfare ministry gives us an opportunity to look into the life of our Lord Jesus Christ and also to experience the type of life he lived while on earth. The bible made it clear to us in Matthew 25vs40: "And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, in as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." The ministry of our Lord Jesus was focused on giving to the needy.
