Mission & Action

Do you want to make a difference?

What is Mission & Action?

Mission & Action is a church committee that enables you to help others in need, whether it be a single mother from Exeter who receives food from our Pantry,  or a homeless family at the Seacoast Family Promise Shelter. M&A also encourages Environmental Justice, through support of local farmers, Fair-Trade food and products, and re-learning to be kind to Mother Earth herself.

What makes our Mission & Action distinctive?

Our team contributes their time, talents, and resources to help local non-profits that make a difference right here in town. We also help to raise awareness of issues of social justice and sustainability through out the world, because we understand the inter-connectedness of the web of life. What we do here in Exeter has a ripple effect that spreads wide….

How will I benefit from involvement with Mission & Action?

When you partner with us, you join a compassionate and dynamic team who is making a positive impact on others. On our team you will:

  •  Exercise your creativity by finding different ways of looking at problems and their solutions.
  • Enlighten us about what you are passionate about, and who knows – it may lead to a project!
