Serve Our Schools
We believe that all kids matter to Jesus and that the local church is uniquely called to care for children in our community who would benefit from another caring, reliable relationship. Research shows that the common factor in determining a child's future success is if they have stable, committed, healthy relationships with adults in their lives.
Christ Church partners with organizations that are serving in local elementary and high schools. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to develop relationships with students and impact our local schools.
Join us after worship on July 24 at our Butterfield campus to learn about how you can serve students in the 2022-2023 school year.
Please register to attend the Information Meeting on July 24.
