Youth Summer Volunteer, Mission, and Outreach Opportunities
"... and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave; just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many." - Matthew 20:27-28
We are called to serve, and we are happy to offer our students opportunities to serve others over the summer. Join us for one of these opportunities to break down barriers and love our neighbors:
Christ Church Vacation Bible School Teen Helper
We have made the very difficult decision to postpone our VBS fun for later this summer. The Diocese of NC has ordered no in person gatherings until May 17 at the earliest. With all of the uncertainty of what things will look like beyond that date, we agreed that it would be best to hold our resources for a date that feels more feasible given our current situation. That date will be determined closer to the end of May when we know more about how things will shape up when the worst of this is over.
Please continue to check back to this web page for updates - new dates, times, and registration details for teen helpers.
Christ Church Freedom School Teen Board
June 29 - July 31, 2020
Freedom School is a five-week summer program led by college interns that combats summer learning loss by providing a unique program that unlocks the long-term potential of children in grades K-8 with limited means by igniting their passion for reading and learning. With a focus on literacy, character education, and community involvement, typically Christ Church hosts a Freedom School site at Rama Road Elementary School. This summer due to the COVID-19 crisis, Freedom School will look a little different. Click here to read a letter from Freedom School Partners, Chief Operating Officer, Paul Barnhardt. We hope you will be a part of this fun, transformational, and joyful program. To serve this summer at a Freedom School R.E.S.P.O.N.S.E. site click here.

Youth Costa Rica Trip
We invite high school students to join us as we engage in true relationship building with our Costa Rican brothers and sisters. We will spend a majority of our time at the Altura Hotel near the Poas Volcano learning how to be in relationship together as we participate in a youth retreat like no other. We will combine efforts with youth from the Diocese of Costa Rica to learn from and grow with one another. Get ready for a new kind of spiritual awakening!
We will not be taking a group to Costa Rica this July due to COVID-19, but we plan to offer this trip in July 2021. We hope your child will join us! Confidential scholarship assistance is available.
