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. 

Christmas Offerings

The Outreach and Mission Commission has designated two recipients of this year’s Christmas offerings:

Episcopal Farmworker Ministry (EFWM) is a joint project of the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina and the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, based in Dunn, NC. They work with agricultural workers (farmworkers, meat processing plant workers, and workers from nurseries, packing houses and poultry, swine, or livestock farms) and immigrant families in Eastern rural NC. Their ministry coordinates direct services, leadership programs, community education programs, and advocacy in support of the community. Since 1982, they have worked with farmworkers and their families to create a better world for the future generations.

Refugee Support Services of the Carolinas’ mission is to facilitate programs and intercultural relationships that promote refugee self-sufficiency and enrich our community. They connect refugees to the greater Charlotte community by facilitating reciprocal relationships between refugees and Americans through the Fruitful Friendships Program. They also teach self-sufficiency skills to refugees, empowering them to thrive in American society through our various programs, including Refugee Help Centers, educational programs, and occasional special events. They strive to educate Americans about refugees and the refugee population in their community.

We invite you to give generously by check, text, online, or the Christ Church Charlotte app.
