Current Volunteer Opportunities

Habitat for Humanity of Wake County – Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities – We hope that you will be able to join us again this year as we partner with Habitat Wake to build homes in the coming months for hard working and deserving families in our community. As part of our involvement in the Episcopal Coalition of Churches, we are currently looking for additional Christ Church parishioners to volunteer on the following featured Saturday dates: Saturday (02/23), Saturday (03/02), and Saturday (03/09). In addition, we always appreciate additional volunteers on any of the Thursday and Friday build dates listed on the Volunteer Hub link below.

Family Promise, March 10-24, 2019 – Daily Volunteers needed:
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. Use the Sign up Genius Link to see volunteer opportunities and/or to sign up. For more information or questions contact Lynn Sledge lynn.sledge@earthlink.net or Tiffany Barry tiffanyvbarry@gmail.com.

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.

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. Contact: Mary Tucker mary.tuck8484@gmail.com

Hope for Jesus Children’s Home – Summer Mission Trip: This summer a group from Christ Church will be heading down to Honduras to spend time at the Hope of Jesus Children’s Home. This will be a great opportunity for members of the parish to visit with Christ Church Missionaries Mike and Kim Miller and assist them in continuing their work to improve the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children in Honduras. If you are interested in being a part of this trip and/or receiving information as more details about it emerge, please reach out to Suzy Lamb, suzyslamb@gmail.com, or the Rev. Daniel J. Reeves.
