Reaching Out

Ministry to Special Needs Kids:  Along with our All God’s Children Worship, the Holy Spirit is also sending us out to serve special needs kids. We participate in a Downs Syndrome Buddy Walk in the fall and an Autism Run/Walk in the spring. We also travel to churches or conferences to inspire others to get involved in worship and service to special needs kids.

Healing Prayer: We offer healing prayer every Sunday during and after worship. Our healing prayer includes prayer for physical needs, prayers for those we love, prayers for the healing of memories, nurturing prayers, or prayers for families. We track prayer requests, and have intercessors with a special calling to pray every week for those in need.

The Mount Olive Township Food Pantry:  Christ Church supports The Mount Olive Township Food Pantry as part of an interfaith offering to the community. We gather donations and help staff the needs of the pantry. As you arrive in church, place your offerings in the food pantry tub in the vestibule. Or volunteer to help deliver food or work the pantry! Any donation you can give will help Mt Olive help our neighbors in need.

International Family Ministry:  We support a child in Bolivia with our donations, prayers and cards.

Operation Christmas Child: Every year, we take part in Operation Christmas Child, filling shoeboxes with gifts to be sent all over the world.

The Knitting Group makes scarves and prayer shawls for a variety of needs, including Seaman’s Church Institute and local ministries to children in hospital or in need.

The Yard Sale: Our annual yard sale brings our community together to raise money for children’s ministry.

Coupon exchange: Bring in the coupons that you won’t use so that they can help others who might use them. We have sent our coupons as far away as Japan to support a military family, and as close as our own neighborhood. This simple offering is a way for us to remember others as we prepare for our own shopping needs.
