Donate shoes and clothes to provide relief, create jobs, and empower people to break the cycle of poverty
One in five children in developing countries survive on $1.90/day. That’s nearly 385 million girls and boys living in extreme poverty worldwide. They lack all the basics we often take for granted, including a proper pair of shoes. And because they’re still growing, these shortfalls create serious consequences for their futures.

In your own small way, you can help. Christ Church is collecting gently-used shoes and/or clothes for Soles4Souls so they can turn your donations into opportunity for children and families worldwide. Bring your items to the Garage Building on our campus Monday-Friday 8:30 AM - 5 PM or Sunday mornings and feel hopeful that these donations will be used by Soles4Souls -- by helping parents earn income through small used shoe businesses, or through disaster relief by restoring their sense of hope amidst great loss, or through free distributions by proving them brand new shoes that protect them from injuries and diseases. Your support makes a difference! Contact Adam Williams with any questions.
Sundays at 9 AM: Stories, Music, and Fun for families with "Church on the Playground"
Sundays at 9 AM | CCE Playground
The Children's Ministry Team warmly invites kids of all ages to gather on the playground before, during, or after worship at 9 AM on Sunday mornings. Bible stories, music, and activities will keep little bodies engaged and growing with God. Grownups can chat, kiddos can play, and everyone can gather in the spirit of holiness. Families are welcome to come and go as needed from the sanctuary to the playground. The worship service will be streamed to an outdoor speaker so you can listen to the indoor service, too, and Holy Communion will be served on the playground. Additionally, the Family Room (on the left side as you enter the sanctuary) will be open for diaper changes, nursing, rocking, etc.
...And the door shall be opened unto you! Church Office Update
Good News! Our church office lobby will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday - Friday. We hope this will make it easier to drop off/pick up items for ministry or general church purposes. Some staff are still working from home for health or family care reasons, so please be sure to email or call if you'd like to meet with a staff person. We're always happy to make an appointment! Facilities and preschool staff are on campus, so you likely won't be alone when you next visit Christ Church.
Farming help needed to provide fresh, healthy food to others
Tuesday | May 11 | 9 AM -12 PM
Imagine living where there are no grocery stores, no farmer's markets, no access to fresh food -- within miles on any direction. You can help people in Richmond who live in these food deserts! Serve at Shalom Farms and help hungry people have access to fresh food. We need a few helping hands to grow, weed, and harvest vegetables.

Shalom Farms is a regional food access and community development project. Its mission is to “ensure access to healthy food and the support to live healthy lives" through sustainable food production. Their ministry provides healthy food to thousands of our RVA neighbors and helping hands are needed!

The next service date is May 11. Click below to sign up and our lay leader, Linda Nelson, will send you more information.
