Outreach of the Church
Lunch with Christ
Christ Episcopal Church offers help to our neighbors who are in disadvantage and give to them a sack lunch to alleviate their physical hunger. The lunches are prepared for community members led especially by the Daughters of the King.
Christ Episcopal Church partners with other churches and organizations to provide meals to the guest at Ewing House AIDS Services of Dallas (ASD).
The mission of ASD is to create and strengthen healthy communities through the delivery of quality, affordable, service-enriched housing for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS. ASD’s mission includes advocacy, education, and the development of affordable housing options and community development opportunities, both for its residents living with or impacted by HIV/AIDS, and for economically disadvantaged people.
Christ Episcopal Church is one of the many volunteer groups that serve meals at The Bridge.
Since May 2008, The Stewpot has been the sole meal provider at The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center, serving 1,000 meals per day, 7 days per week.
The Stewpot offers a safe haven for homeless and at-risk individuals of Dallas, providing resources for basic survival needs, as well as opportunities to start a new life.
At its main location on the corner of Park Avenue and Young Street in downtown Dallas, The Stewpot provides casework assistance and enrichment programs to individuals and families experiencing homelessness, as well as Children & Youth and Family Stabilization programs to at-risk children and their families.
Red Cross blood Drive
Once a year during April, Christ Episcopal Church joins with the American Red Cross to donate blood and save lives.
Mission Statement: The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
Bright Spot Reading Program
The Bright Spot Reading Program is a 2-week program. The program is designed to help children grades 1-5 on their reading skills and strengthen or develop them before the new school year begins. The children will get reading practice, improved reading skills, play with games, build crafts, and fellowship. Once a week, the children will go to the North Oak Cliff Library on Ninth Street to increase their knowledge.
