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. Our current outreach partners include:
In our community and the U.S.
- Beaches Dial-a-Ride
- Beaches Habitat for Humanity
- Sulzbacher Beaches Clinic
- Episcopal Children’s Services
- Feeding NE Florida
- Foster Closet
- Hart Felt Ministries
- Mission House
- Pie in the Sky
- Police Athletic League Jacksonville
- Rhoda Martin Early Learning Center
- St. Mary’s Episcopal Church
Outside the U.S.
Christ Church makes grants to nonprofit programs that provide basic needs to the most vulnerable of our neighbors. In addition to small grants (typically $10,000 or less) for such work, the Outreach Ministry provides 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 associate rector.
THE GRANT PROCESS IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. We will re-open in September of 2021 to accept grant requests for the 2022 budget year.
