Partnering with you in your child's formation
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers (and sisters), you did it to me.” – Matthew 25:40
Kids in Need is a annual outreach event at Christ Church, mobilizing the efforts of hundreds of parishioners to meet a very practical need in our community: new backpacks and school supplies for families who can't afford them.
We plan to collect, or purchase with donations, 625 backpacks and fill them with school supplies through Kids in Need. The supplies and backpacks will be given to Christ Church's partnering outreach agencies who, in turn, will distribute them to the families they serve.
Kids in Need is a boon to their efforts relieving poverty and creating inroads for Christian ministry. We have a long-standing relationship with each of our outreach partners. You can see a list of these ministry partners at the bottom of this page.
Get the whole family involved in the act of giving. We would love to receive donations of new or unused, sturdy backpacks from those who are able.
Please deposit your donation at a drop off location inside Archgate, the Chapel, or the Fellowship Hall on the weekend of July 9 or 16.
A monetary gift can greatly help us reach our 625 backpack goal. Please designate checks or envelopes by writing “Kids in Need” on the memo line. They may be placed in the offering plate or delivered to the Ministry Center offices during the week. You can also give online with a credit card or eCheck.
We need over 30 volunteers to assist with collecting, sorting, and preparing the backpacks for delivery. Volunteer opportunities are available the weekends of July 9 and July 16, on Sunday, July 23 during the services and until 3 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, and during the week of July 24 – July 27. To volunteer, Send an RSVP using the form below.
