Since the apostles, the ministry of service has been an integral part of the nature and practice of Christianity. The Faith in Action Vision for the next decade seeks to engage those within and evangelize those outside our community through consistent patterns of service that nurture faith in the Triune God.
Focus on Faith in Action:

If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday. - Isaiah 58:10
Since St. Paul gathered the collection for the poor of Jerusalem, the Christian Church has recognized the social implications of its belief. For almost two thousand years churches have taken care of the poor, fed the hungry and soothed the sick. We meet Christ, not only in the proclamation of the Word and the celebration of the sacraments, but also in loving service to our neighbors, particularly in those persons and relationships where He has taught us to look for Him. This work is part of our tradition of faithful stewardship and mission in the world.
We want to be the kind of community that tells the story of Jesus Christ through our work in the world. We are people who are called to be disciples and sent to be apostles
Christ Church Faith in Action Ministries are led by parishioners and supported by staff members, Frances Poe, Director of Faith in Action, and Sally Skardon, Faith in Action Coordinator. Tim Wilson chairs the Faith in Action Coordinating Committee.
