Many years ago, we asked ourselves this question: “If Christ Church ceased to exist, would our neighborhood miss us?” To be honest, we weren’t comfortable with the answer.
Since then, we have worked to be a very real and concrete blessing to our neighbors. We have sponsored many neighborhood events (various kinds of recycling efforts, a gas buy-down at a local gas station, concerts and cultural events, etc.) and continued to pursue opportunities to make a very real difference within our neighborhood.
We’ve formed partnerships with a few of our neighbor schools – Trailwood Elementary, located just east of Nall on 95th Street, and John Diemer, located just south of 95th Street on Lamar. Our hope is to help the parents of these schools by stepping in and filling volunteer needs. We work at events such as auctions, book fairs, carnivals, family science nights, etc. This allows parents to simply enjoy the events with their families.
