FRIENDS GATHERING RESPITE CARE MINISTRY

Friends Gathering provides mental stimulation and socialization opportunities for anyone who has been diagnosed with dementia or other debilitating disease.

Embrace Grace

This group provides emotional, practical, and spiritual support for single, young pregnant women who find themselves in an unexpected pregnancy. The primary goal of Embrace Grace is to empower the church to be a safe and nonjudgmental place for these young women to run to when they find out they are pregnant, instead of the last place they are welcomed because of shame and guilt.

James 1:27 Projects are one of the many ways that our Christ Church family can help our members in need with repairs or small projects, in and around your home. If you are in need of help, send us an email explaining your situation and someone will reach back out to you shortly.
