Missions & Outreach Ministries

The people of CCE seek to be the heart and hands of Jesus by aligning our passions and strengths with organizations that work to meet the needs of our neighbors, both locally and internationally.  Throughout the Bible, we learn that God wants us to work for justice, especially for the vulnerable.  Justice and mercy are core values of what we strive to do in our service through Missions and Outreach.

The organizations we support have been looked at through this lens and include our four priorities of ending hunger, providing shelter, enhancing educational outcomes, and ensuring access to health care. Providing relief to the suffering is part of what we do, while also seeking opportunities for systemic, transformative change.

Here are some volunteer opportunities that we have organized though Christ Church. Also, see below for our Volunteer Bank, which lists ways to serve on your own, with your family, or as a small group.

RE-ESTABLISH RICHMOND REFUGEE RESOURCE FAIR
Help our newest RVA neighbors on Saturday, June 22!

ReEstablish Richmond provides services to refugees so they can thrive in our communities. On Saturday, June 22, their annual Resource Fair will provide resources to people in need. Please consider helping!
 
 Christ Church has been asked to send volunteers for two specific tasks:
 
#1: Fair drivers and ambassadors- Individuals and/families can sign up to drive a client and their family to the event and take them home. We are also asking drivers to stay at the event with the family and act as an ambassador or fair guide to make sure the family gets the information they need. We are looking to recruit at least 50 of these, so it is a high area of need. 
 
#2: Donation Room Coordinators- We will have a shoe/book donation room. We need a group of people to help with picking up book donations and bringing them to the YMCA. For the day of, we would need a few people to man the donation room. We could use a group of 3-5 people who can help before and the day of the event.
