Current Volunteer Opportunities

Hope Charter Reading & Lunch Buddies – Weekly: Christ Church partners with Hope Charter Leadership Academy, a nearby K-5 tuition-free school, by providing more than 40 weekly volunteers as reading buddies for kindergartners and first graders and as lunch buddies for students in grades 2-5. Volunteers work with the same student throughout the year, often forming lasting connections. For more information, please contact Caroline Campbell – caroline_campbell@yahoo.com.

Shepherd’s Table Soup Kitchen – Second Wednesday of the month: Shepherd’s Table Soup Kitchen at Church of the Good Shepherd serves a free, hot and nutritious lunch to more than 275 people Monday-Friday in downtown Raleigh. Christ Church volunteers serve the second Wednesday of each month. Shepherd’s Table is under the Clark’s Promise “umbrella” at Christ Church. Clark’s Promise is a growing ministry of Christ Church that serves the needs of our neighbors in Raleigh who have no real place to call home. In addition to Shepherd’s Table, Clark’s Promise supports Family Promise and the Street Outreach Team at Triangle Family Services. Volunteer Sign Up: http://bit.ly/shepherdstableSpring19

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. Working closely with Lutheran Services Carolinas, a local refugee resettlement agency, the teams function as “circles of welcome” for the two families and connect them with educational, health, employment, and social services as they make the transition to life in Raleigh.
