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 and global agencies to provide meaningful outreach opportunities and respond to needs.

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’re eager to share the exciting work taking place here and we hope you’ll feel called to join us. For more information, contact The Reverend Joan Kilian or Laura Konitzer.

Episcopal Relief & Development Support

As so much of our country is being ravaged by hurricanes and wildfires, please consider making a donation to Episcopal Relief & Development to support relief efforts. Your gift will provide our partners on the ground with critical supplies, such as food and water, pastoral care and other urgent needs. You’ll also help us assist with the long-term efforts needed to rebuild and heal. Please visit this page to donate. 

Updates From Our Partners During the COVID-19 Crisis

There are a few 'hands on' volunteer opportunities for those who are healthy:

  • 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)
  • Matthew 25 casseroles are continuing and we need cooks! Contact Cristina Warlick or Caroline Stoneman for the easy recipe and further instructions
  • 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.
