Temporary Response Team: for Senior Citizens
We have a team who has been developing and training coaches who will be caring for our Senior Citizens during this time. They make phone calls to keep in touch and assess needs. They also pick up and deliver groceries and prescriptions while maintaining safe distance and hygienic conditions. If you are interested in serving or need help during this time, email the church office.
Christ Church Care Center
We have a team of volunteers who help those that find themselves under-resourced for whatever reason. They can assess your situation and help find or provide resources as available or as determined. We have many links with State and Local resources. Please the Care Center or leave a message at 401.886.9251 and someone will call you back. You can also come to the church on the 2nd, 3rd & 4th Fridays of each month (except July) from 9-11:30am to talk to a volunteer.
precautions being taken at christ church
We have taken the pandemic seriously and are following State guidelines. Hand sanitizers are available upstairs and downstairs. If you are fully vaccinated, you are now able to go without a mask. Chairs have been put back to their normal arrangement both upstairs and downstairs, so we are at full capacity. We have a second viewing area in the Connection Cafe.
During Sunday School, all children are signed in one at a time and required to use hand sanitizers and face masks. All adults in the Ministry Center are also asked to wear a face mask even if vaccinated. Individual baskets with any craft or school supplies are provided for each child. Parents are not allowed past the registration desk. We do appreciate it if children are pre-registered for Sunday School so we know how many to expect.
Ways to Reach out Locally
Give Blood: The Rhode Island Blood Center has a critical need for donations and expects the demand to remain high for the foreseeable future. It is safe to donate at any of the center’s six sites: Providence, Middletown, Narragansett, Warwick, Westerly, and Woonsocket. Visit here or call (800) 283-8385 to make an appointment.
Meals On Wheels: This program is in great need of volunteers who are healthy, to deliver meals to those who are housebound and in need. They will need as much person power as they can get over the next few weeks. Interested parties can call 401-351-6700 and speak to Ozzie to pick up a volunteer day or two. They are also in need of more hand sanitizer and shelf-stable food.
