Serve-A-Bration

Join us November 3 - 9 for our parish-wide week of service. 

Would you like to help make or serve food for those who need it? Have you ever visited the campus of Rama Road Elementary School? Are you interested in learning more about The ROC or any of Christ Church’s 18 partner agencies? Serve-a-bration is your chance to do all of this and more.

We have opportunities planned each day for all ages and a wide variety of activities. We hope you and your family will take advantage of this week to get your feet wet and try something new.
