Outreach

The vision of the Outreach Ministry Team is to “regularly and actively seek opportunity where, through God, we can lift up a life.”

The Outreach Ministry Team of Christ Church reaches out to our local community, our Cape Cod community and our global community. On an on-going basis, Christ Church supports the Harwich Food Pantry through food donations and through the sale of food cards to either Shaw’s or Stop and Shop. The Food Pantry receives 5% from each $10, $20 or $50 food card sold. The Food Pantry is also supported by  the annual “Souper Bowl of Caring” that takes place each Super Bowl Sunday. During the summer growing season, parishioners plant extra rows of food in their gardens, donating their excess fresh produce to the Food Pantry.

Each year a $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a Harwich resident graduating high school. The graduating senior must plan to attend a Massachusetts Community College or a Massachusetts State University.

Christ Church has partnered with Habitat of Humanity of Cape Cod and has participated in the building of eight homes in Harwich, providing volunteer workers, financial support and food.

The Outreach Committee annually sponsors an African Team Ministries Jewelry and Craft sale. All proceeds from the sale are sent to African Team Ministries, providing funds for orphan and refugee relief and missions in East Africa.

Through the Jubilee Ministry of the Diocese of Massachusetts, the Outreach Ministry Team has committed to sponsoring the secondary education of eight Ugandan orphans.

 

  • Upcoming Events

    Beginning March 8 we will have a Lenten program two days a week. Wednesday mornings in Lent we will focus on the prophetic call to ministry in the themes of Lent and ask questions like “how can I make a difference in today’s world?” We will use reflections by Dan Berrigan and Joan Chittister in a program named “The Prophet in You: Gifts for Prophecy and Transformation.” On Fridays, we will study the text and music of the Fauré Requiem. The class is from 10:30am to almost Noon, and optional Stations of the Cross are at noon.
