Anyone who attends Christ Community is part of this family. We welcome you and love being a part of your journey with Jesus. You are family here. But in order for this family to thrive, we need a group of stakeholders.Stakeholders are a group of people who love Jesus and who love this church, and who want to officially commit themselves to this church’s vision and to be a part of owning that vision. We have put together a simple online process for anyone who wants to officially become a stakeholder of Christ Community.

Zoe’s Study Buddies
tuesday nights through may 31
7 – 8:30 pm
Kinyarwanda, Tigrinya, Somali, and Rohingya are just a few of the languages our students can welcome you with! We are a group of 8-12 high school and middle school students looking for one-to-one academic tutoring. Coming from various language backgrounds, these teens need extra English language support, specific to the subjects they are learning in school. We are looking for academically minded, faith-oriented individuals interested in building cross-cultural relationships within our Study Buddies community. In addition to our Tuesday night one-to-on tutoring in subjects like English Language Arts, Algebra, Biology, Geometry, Physics and U.S. Government, we have periodic cooking nights where our young friends can share a taste of their cultures with us. Also, we could always use a few more prayer buddies who are interested in lifting these teens up in specific ways. Typically, we pair a tutor with a student who has a specific academic need, so study buddy pairs sometimes shuffle from week to week within the group. If you’re interested in stopping by Zoe’s Cafe on a Tuesday night to see what we’re all about—Welcome!
Please e-mail Georgia with questions and for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our church family gets to participate in an awesome opportunity as we walk in love and make a continued impact for a community in Peru, as well as sponsor the children there through Compassion International.
Our challenge is for each individual or family within Christ Community to reach one child living in poverty for Christ. For a child in poverty, sponsorship will mean access to food, clean water, medical care, educational opportunities, age-appropriate Bible teaching and you. When you choose a child and commit to his or her care and support, you have the power to change everything for that child.
