Responding to Jesus’s mandate in Matthew 25 to feed, clothe and care for those in need, the Outreach Ministry of Christ Episcopal Church assists those who serve the most vulnerable in our community, our nation and the world. We do this through an annual grant-making program, by identifying ways parishioners can provide hands-on service and encouraging participation. A more detailed overview of our ministry can be found here. In 2016, our outreach partners included:
In our community and the U.S.
Outside the U.S.
We make grants, typically $10,000 or less, for programs that address basic needs of our most vulnerable neighbors. In addition, we provide funds to organizations with local, national or international Episcopal affiliation, especially those founded by Christ Episcopal Church or impacted by significant parishioner participation. Recipients are selected in an annual process by a committee of parishioners, under the guidance of the senior associate rector.
Our grant application process will begin again in September. For information on outreach, contact the church office at 904-285-6127.
