Every week volunteers from Christ Church make vital contributions to the health and vitality of our city, state, nation, and world through our social service ministries, civic organizations, non-profits and global ministries.

The web of leadership and support that find their spiritual home here create immense gifts enabling our interests and partnerships in Christ’s name to flourish around the world. They serve as volunteers in shelters, on non-profit boards, grant-making agencies, church commissions, government and municipal funding agencies …the list is nearly endless.

Members of Christ Church form a network of related organizations and coalitions that direct their impact precisely where Jesus has taught us to serve. This effort and talent goes largely unnoticed and unacknowledged. I get to learn of these gifts and services as a pastor and I only see a fraction of how Christ Church people make a difference that is shaped by the spiritual life offered by our faith community. This harvest of service comes to mind every Sunday we are dismissed with the words, “Let us go forth in the name of Christ.”

Thank you for those of you who serve in this way.
