Our local mission partners provide us with unique opportunities to serve our community and region. By engaging in local missions, you not only impact the lives of those you serve, but you find yourself being impacted yourself, in ways you didn’t think were possible.
Whether it’s Little Angels or Feast for Friends, we have several options for our church to get involved in local missions throughout the year, and others as needs and opportunities present themselves. We hope you will engage with local missions and help carry out the redemptive work Jesus has commanded us to do.
Life Forward helps women and their families make life-affirming decisions through God’s love. Through our participation in the “Change for Life” baby bottle drive and the “Strides for Hope” 5k run and walk, we can help support the many families that benefit from the variety of services offered by Life Forward.

The Bear Ministry
The Bear Ministry makes cute, comfort bears from scratch, then sends them into the community where they are placed with those needing love and encouragement. The volunteer team gathers once a month to sew, stuff, and dress the bears which are then distributed to area hospitals, schools, and police departments where they then go to those that need them.

The Box Ministry
Starting the fall of 2022 we are launching a college focused ministry here at Christ’s Church and it is simply called The Box ministry. We recognize that the college years are critically formative years in all aspects of a student’s life socially, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. While they are well on their way to independence there are still opportunities to guide and influence along the way. Often that comes from outside the immediate family and that is where we want to come alongside the family in this new ministry as Guardians.
As a Guardian, your tasks will be multi-faceted and require a commitment of time and resources to invest in the lives of our next generations of leaders and influencers for the sake of the Gospel.

Christ’s Church partners with local parents to provide Christmas gifts for children in need, offering them the opportunity to register for our “Little Angels Shoppe.” Church members graciously donate new clothes and toys so the parents can come to shop for Christmas gifts to give to their children.
