Ways to Serve

Serving in God's name is a natural progression in the life of faith. As we grow closer to our Creator, we naturally want to reach out and serve people in need.We encourage everyone in the Christ Church community to let the Spirit guide them in this process.
 
For some ideas, consider serving within the church, within the community or in ministries around the world. You'll also find links to these areas of service listed at left.

If you want to serve right now, here are a few opportunities:  

FRONT DESK RECEPTIONIST 

Christ Church is seeking volunteers to serve as receptionists at the church's front desk. If you are available half-days during the week, enjoy meeting and greeting people, answering phones, directing visitors, and are able to multi-task, please click here to contact Cynthia Metzger Phipps for more information.
