Compassion Initiatives

Let's be all IN! 

*INvite *INvolve *INvest!

 

We would like to encourage you  to invite your friends and neighbors, get involved and get invested in the life of Christ Church! Every month we will be focusing on some way we can reach out and tangibly make a difference in the lives of others. Throughout the month we encourage you to bring in a specific type of donation that will benefit those in need in our community or those in need around the world.

MAY COMPASSION INITIATIVE

 The baby bottle campaign for the Harmony Women's Care (formerly CareNet-RI) begins on Mother's Day and ends on Father's Day in June. There will be no virtual campaign this year, but we encourage you to pick up a baby bottle starting on Mother's Day (May 8) and fill the bottle up with coins, bills or checks (made out to Harmony Women's Care) and return them by Father's Day (June 19). Harmony Women's Care helps to give women with unexpected pregnancies the option to choose life for their babies.

Help the Ukrainians

With the war raging in Ukraine, we are focusing our efforts on helping the refugee crisis in Poland and nearby countries. We have been partnering with Sanctuary in Providence to collect funds to help offset the cost of a van that will be used by a church on the ground in Poland to help move supplies into and people out of Ukraine. You can give through our online giving (give to Ukraine). Go to sanctuaryri.org/ukraine for more information and updates from the team on the ground in Poland. Although April is over, the war is not, so you can continue to give to this initiative as you feel led.
