Our mission is to reach out and serve the world.
We have a rich history of working hand-in-hand with local agencies to provide meaningful outreach opportunities that make a difference in our community. We’ve been blessed to play a role in the creation of groups such as Habitat for Humanity, Crisis Assistance Ministry, and Charlotte Family Housing. We’re proud to continue supporting many others.
On a global level, we’ve established a strong relationship with the Diocese of Costa Rica by helping build childcare centers and even a church.
Along with providing monetary support to agencies, we seek to equip our parishioners to be servant leaders in our city, our nation and our world. We provide opportunities for all ages to serve as the hands and feet of Christ.
We have a great partnership with Rama Road Elementary School! Learn more and get involved »

This summer, we are focusing on Creation Care. Mid-month in June, July and August, we will feature two new printable Creation Care Bingo Cards you can put on your fridge to keep track of progress.
If possible, as you complete a square, take a picture and share it with us on social media by tagging us (@christchurchcltoutreach). We also invite you to share the fun and the challenge with friends and family across the city or across the country and see who can call "BINGO!" first. Will you choose five in a row? Full card? Four corners? We will post some of our winners in upcoming newsletters.
We are working to support our outreach partners in the community. Visit this page to find details about what they are doing and how you can help.
There are a few 'hands on' volunteer opportunities for those who are healthy:
Galilee Ministries hosts several non-profits who are working harder than ever to meet the growing needs caused by the pandemic. There are opportunities to augment their food boxes or volunteer to distribute food.
Charlotte Family Housing is looking for a few volunteers to help move some appliances into their storage unit. A truck will be provided. For details contact Josiah Daniels at CFH.
Loaves and Fishes needs volunteers at mobile food pantry distribution sites and to pack food boxes (you must complete the whole application process, and we encourage you to take your own mask and gloves if you have them)
Give blood at local blood banks
Sew facemasks for medical personnel and high risk people. Here's a pattern approved by Atrium Health (the video makes everything a little clearer). Please check with Louise Bonner (our resident expert!) before sewing the masks. If you have any 1/16" or 1/8" elastic to share, please let Louise know. You can get them to Louise or drop them at the church.
Monday, September 14th at 6:30 PM via Zoom
Good Reads is an online book club to discuss books that address significant issues and that help us to pause to think about them, perhaps differently than we did before. Our reading selection for September will be Annette Gordon Reed's The Hemingses of Monticello. To help our small businesses, please consider ordering from a local, independent bookstore.
