Wholistic Missions

Moving toward a problem, need, or broken thing in our path, in Jesus' name.

Wholistic Missions, is simply your active love for God translated into an active love for people. This love notices, empathizes, and acts on behalf of others.

Wholistic Missions isn't a program, it's a lifestyle. It's how we, Severn Runners, are committed to living out our time here on this earth. How can you get involved in Wholistic Missions? Start out by noticing the people God has put in your life. Who are they? What do they need? Next notice what you have in your hands...both literally and metaphorically. How can you answer a need they have with the resources you have available? Remember that it's all about relationship! Begin loving the people in your path well. They will see and hear Jesus through you!

Saucy Sundays at Severn Run - The First Sunday Each Month

We have partnered with our friends at The Transformation Center to provide the Lilies Place pantry with 500 pasta items every month. Any pasta item counts, but the most helpful items are sauces with meat, pasta meals in a can (e.g., Chef Boyardee, Spaghetti-Os, etc), or any pasta sauce. If you buy your items at the store, you can drop your items at the Missions Area in the Atrium the first Sunday of each month. If you have questions, contact Vicki Delair.

Try out this saucy life-hack! Set up a reoccurring online order of sauce to ship straight to The Church at Severn Run (8187 Telegraph Road, Severn, MD 21144) at the beginning of each month.
