We Engage in Many Missions, both Internally and Externally Including

SOUL's (Serving Others in Unity and Love) is an ecumenical outreach ministry involving more than 14 churches that take turns preparing and serving a meal to hungry individuals every evening.  Christ Episcopal Church has a team that serves a meal every fourth Thursday of each month.  If interested, sign up on our volunteer form.

The annual Walk for Hunger is sponsored by the Food Bank of the Albemarle and held each October. A team of CEC volunteers of all ages walks to show support, raise awareness and generate donations.  If interested, sign up on our volunteer form.

CEC's annual packaging event to support Stop Hunger Now takes place each November on a Sunday afternoon.  Volunteers work together to prepare bags of rice, dehydrated vegetables and protein that are sealed and stored until shipped to countries suffering from hunger and natural disasters.

Each year the CEC outreach volunteers prepare Easter baskets for the residents of Benjamin House.
