Outreach: Living Through the Word

Holy Nativity Lutheran Church is actively involved in community outreach focused on serving the needs of those in our local community and throughout Baltimore County and extending into regions of Baltimore City. Through the guidance of our Pastor, dedication and leadership of Debbie Heckathorn our Outreach Leader and through the service and dedication of numerous volunteers and Outreach Team Members we are able to host a number of events throughout the year.

We are always looking for opportunities to assist the community and those in need. Please contact Debbie Heckathorn for more details.

We would like to introduce to you the Outreach Ministry Team!
