Current Volunteer Opportunities
Family Promise, March 8-22:
Christ Church partners with Family Promise to provide housing for up to 5 families, for two weeks, each year. Volunteers play a critical role in the success of providing the families a safe place to sleep, meals, transportation and a sense of community while staying at Christ Church. This ministry offers a wide spectrum of volunteer opportunities. We will host again the week of March 8-22. Family Promise is under the Clark’s Promise “umbrella” at Christ Church.

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.
