Current Volunteer Opportunities
Giving Tree – A great outreach project for the whole family! All Gifts are due back December 11! Christ Church will again sponsor families from The Growing Together Preschool (GTP), and Step Up Ministries. GTP is a preschool program housed here at Christ Church that serves three and four year olds living in public housing. Step-Up Ministries is a yearlong life skills program. Beginning Sunday November 17, there will be a table in the commons area with tags that have clothing and gift ideas for a child. We will also have donations cards available for various amounts. Funds collected will be used by our youth to purchase Christmas gifts for the children from Step-Up Ministry. This is an easy and wonderful way to help out if you cannot shop for a child. Join us this year as we share Christmas cheer with our neighbors. Questions? Liz Stroff

Refugee Resettlement Ministry: Christ Church volunteer teams mentor a Syrian family who arrived in Raleigh in 2017 and a Congolese family who arrived in the fall of 2018.
