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.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO SERVE AT SHALOM FARMS

Are you interested in helping people in Richmond who live in a food desert, i.e. lack access to fresh food? Consider joining our Shalom Farms Volunteer Group to help grow, cultivate and/or harvest fresh vegetables through the ministry of Shalom Farms.

Shalom Farms is a regional food access and community development project. Its mission is to “ensure access to healthy food and the support to live healthy lives" through sustainable food production. Their ministry provides healthy food to thousands of our RVA neighbors and helping hands are needed!

Christ Church has supported this ministry for many years and participants say it is meaningful way to help others -- plus, the fresh air and hands-in-the-earth provide a great stress releiver!  We plan to volunteer with the West End Islamic Center once the farm is open to volunteers again. Stay tuned!

Please contact Rev. Richard Pelkey if you have any questions.
