Missions & Outreach Ministries

The people of Christ Church seek to be the heart and hands of Jesus by aligning our passions and strengths with organizations that are working to meet the needs of our neighbors— here in Richmond and far beyond. Because God’s work is the healing of the world, we wish to focus our giving on life’s fundamental necessities—without which the ability to live a healthy life and fulfill one’s God-given potential is impossible. Accordingly, we partner with organizations working to end hunger, provide shelter, enhance educational outcomes, and ensure access to health care. And because we long for an equitable and just world in which the need for crisis responses are the exception and not the norm, we support organizations dedicated to systemic, transformative change. Christ Church organizes a variety of volunteer opportunities for parishioners and we encourage everyone to serve as they feel called.

Put your faith in action this season!

 VOLUNTEER AT THE SOPHIE HOUSE CHRISTMAS PARTY 

The Sophie House, just down the street from us, helps single women and their children move from crisis to stability. They help women who have suffered personal loss, divorce, complex health issues, poverty, unemployment or under-employment, and many others. On December 8, YOU will have the opportunity to help these women and families experience some Christmas Love!

Sophie House clients will be invited to a special Christmas Celebration at the Garage on Saturday, December 8. Before the party, CCE'ers and other community partners will be able to purchase gifts (stay tuned for how you can help purchase gifts). Then, mothers and children will ‘shop’ for each other discreetly, wrap presents, enjoy food, and play fun games.

Volunteers are needed! Click here and sign up to lead crafts, help with gift-wrapping, and play games with the families.

  SUPPORT THE HOPE FOR HUMANITY GIVING TREE

Thanks to the support of Christ Church, the students at Hope and Resurrection Secondary School in South Sudan are becoming the leaders their country so desperately needs. Beginning December 2 the Giving Tree will be in the milling area of our sanctuary. Take a handmade ornament from the tree, make a financial contribution, and become part of this tremendously successful project that is changing lives in South Sudan.

 SERVE ON A MISSION TRIP TO HAITI  
We have a long-standing relationship with two Episcopal parishes and their communities in Haiti. Our call to partner with and serve our brothers and sisters there continues! We are planning mission trips to Haiti and need hearts and hands to serve with us. Especially needed are doctors, PAs, RNs, NPs and anyone with medical experience -- but we also need folks to upgrade our partner schools and clinic. 

Trip timing will depend on availability and interest. If you’re interested in a mission trip to Haiti in 2019 or 2020, or in learning more about our partnerships, contact Penny Sellers, pennysellers@verizon.net.
