Jesus calls his followers to make disciples of all nations. We work to build up the worldwide church and to mobilize the people and resources of our local parish to respond. Christ Church has partnered with the Province of Rwanda and Compassion International to bless 1.2 million Anglicans in a geographic area barely larger than North Texas.

Local Outreach

Annual Outreach Events

Kids in Need

Each July, we collect backpacks and school supplies for children in our community whose families are economically struggling. As a congregation, we sort and stuff the backpacks with school supplies. These packed backpacks are then distributed to the agencies surrounding us.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child shows God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Every fall, Christ Church packs shoeboxes filled with gifts and an invitation to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. These boxes are collected and distributed worldwide by Samaritan's Purse.

Thanksgiving Outreach

Each Thanksgiving Christ Church, working with local agencies, collects food for the needy in our community. This involves a large number of people, from the monetary donors to the volunteers who sort and distribute the food to the folks who coordinate the entire event.

Ministry Partners

Christ Church's social service partners have a proven track record of effective service. We encourage our community to contribute their time and talents to our partner agencies. Please note that while we support these organizations, they are not Christ Church affliated.

Matthew 25 Initiative

The M25 Initiative is an Anglican outreach that supports national compassion and mercy ministries, fulfilling the biblical call to love the least of these.

Global Mission

A Legacy for Rwanda

Christ Church directs much of its global mission effort toward Rwanda—a beautiful country recovering from a difficult past. Since a nation-wide genocide in the early nineties, Rwanda has experienced amazing healing. Today, Rwanda has great hope, but rural villages are still searching for ways to care for their children.

Since 2019, Christ Church has partnered with the Province of Rwanda and Compassion International. We are annually building preschools, churches, nutrition programs, and child sponsorships for rural villages, with a goal to bless 1.2 million people in a geographic area barely larger than North Texas. As God calls us to be a church of compassion, Rwanda is a place where compassion can build an powerful legacy.


Five preschools and three churches serving 750 families

Christ Church builds preschools and churches where families are isolated and 75% of Rwandan children lack educational opportunities. Attending school improves every aspect of a child’s life, keeping children safe and uplifting their future.


Daily nutrition programs serving 750 children

Christ Church has established multiple nutrition programs in conjunction with our rural preschools. One cup of enriched porridge provides a child with a daily supply of calories, vitamins, and nutrients, at an age when it is vital for their growth.


Sponsorship support for over 300 children

Christ Church partners with Compassion International to sponsor Rwandan children located in the same villages as our preschool and nutrition programs. Christ Church visits Rwanda annually to meet and serve these children as they grow up.
