Outreach and Mission

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. 

Current Outreach Opportunities

Men's Service Days at the Galilee Center - Make a difference at the Galilee Center and in our community! Join the Men’s Ministry as they volunteer at the Galilee Center this fall. Service work includes painting, landscaping, and performing minor property repairs on the second Saturday of the month from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM. All skill levels are welcome. The Galilee Center is a place of learning, serving and fellowship for refugees, immigrants, and other residents of Charlotte. Contact Hayward Morgan at  for more information. Click here to sign up.

Men's Shelter Volunteers - Christ Church has an ongoing commitment to the Men's Shelter of Charlotte to serve dinner at the Statesville Avenue location. We are currently looking for volunteers to serve over the next several months. This is a great way for individuals or families to make an impact on the Charlotte community. To sign up or for more information, visit  www.christchurchcharlotte.org/shelter.

The Rama Road Girl Scouts NEED YOU!
Our Rama Road Girl Scout Troop is a well oiled machine but we do have some open positions for women who want to make a difference in the lives of young girls who need your time and attention. We serve 70-85 girls per year. Many of these girls aren't able to be successful in school and come from single parent households where parents are often struggling to make ends meet. Participating in Girl Scouts gives the girls a sense of accomplishment and builds self esteem. They are also have experiences like camping and theater that they otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend.

Our troop meets 2 Mondays a month from September - May. In order to keep this troop going and not have to reduce the size,  we are looking for the following:

1. Assistant Troop Director - This job is for the big picture person who can over see and delegate. It is a job where you would learn how to run the troop this coming school year and then assume the director role. You would not be directly leading a patrol but overseeing the program and the rest of the team. During meetings, you will help where needed.
2. Assistant Treasurer/Registrar - This job can be done from home on your own time. The first year you will be in training and then take on the job of treasurer/registrar the following year. The busy times are September, October, and February. You register girls and adults. Other responsibilities are filing expenses with the church and managing the troop account.
3. Assistant leader - This is a show up job. The leader will tell you what to do. For someone who enjoys making a difference with a kind and caring hand.
4. Substitute leader - This is like the assistant job but you only come when you have signed up to sub for someone or to chaperone a field trip.
5. Teenage Girl Assistant - You need to be able to be at Rama Road Elementary by 2:45. Girl Scout experience is preferred but not required. You will assist leaders in your assigned patrol. This is a great way to earn service hours if you enjoy working with young girls.
