Outreach

Walton is devoted to finding ways for its members to demonstrate the love of God in our local and Global community. The outreach ministry is an integral part of Walton.

Members not only raise funds to help in disaster and poverty stricken areas around the world, but also they support local programs and volunteer their time in Oakville, Halton and Hamilton. We have several projects in the area,where we work with other Outreach Ministries who offer basic emergency services and resources for anyone who is struggling with poverty.

From collecting pennies to traveling to foreign countries to helping build shelters…Walton is there.
