“Seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself. Strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.” (Baptismal Covenant)

Outreach

 

                                                  Christ Church Outreach

The people of Christ Church care about our world and hope to live into our Baptismal Covenant to serve Christ in all people. We do this on an ecumenical basis with our work and donations to Grace Lutheran Church’s Food Bank in Somers Point. We also support our local community, as well as persons and communities in need in other parts of the United States and the Developing Countries.

Most of our Outreach Ministry is in the form of personal time and effort in support of our local Shore Memorial Hospital and the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. Several of our parishioners volunteer to help at the hospital in a variety of ways. Every year the parish organizes the collecting of toys for children of families who are served by the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. In addition, personal care items are donated for the children’s mothers so that each child may give their mother a Christmas gift.

Christ Church Soup Fellowship!

 We had a wonderful year with our outreach ministry to the community of providing food and fellowship to our neighbors.  We are especially blessed with the connections we made with residents from Spring Village in Galloway and Shalom House in Ventnor. 
 
Our ministry is blessed by all those who volunteer to help and supply food the second Thursday of each month!
 
Additions!
 
Beginning on Thursday, January 14, our Soup Fellowship will be providing a speaker to share something of interest or helpful information at each fellowship.  Our first speaker will be Henry D. Marcus, JD, who will give a talk on Judaism and the Messiah!  Each month we will welcome a different speaker and topic.
 
New Volunteers Needed!
 
We are ready to form a schedule of volunteers for 2016; we need volunteers for setting up and serving, food donations, and guest speakers.  The goal is to have this in place for at least the next six months so as to run efficiently, successfully, and in an organized manner.  Contact Father Justin at ccsprector@verizon.net or at the office 609-927-6262 to volunteer time, food, or be a guest speaker.  There will also be a sign-up sheet in the narthex.
 
Many Blessings for a Christ- filled New Year!
 
Father Justin

Drink Pouch Brigade 

Recycle your waste with Capri Sun® and Honest Kids®

Bring your empty juice pouches to the collection box, and we can earn $0.02 per pouch to share through our ministries!

We are now helping the environment and using that mission to aid our church ministries.  In our household, we can easily collect three or four juice pouches a day, and those pouches are not biodegradable.  They will stay in landfills forever.  TerraCycle will take these products and upcycle them into new, cool products, and then they will send us $0.02 for each pouch.  We can then donate that money to the ministries in our church.
 
Please start collecting your empty juice pouches and bring them to church with you.  After we have collected the required amount, we will send them to TerraCycle and start earning points.  Don't forget to save your pouches in coffee hour, too!
 
Here is a video explaining the process.
