Christ Episcopal Church members are God's hands and feet in the world who exercise many different forms of personal ministry. Our parish knows about and supports the mission of the Church beyond itself and we reflect the cultural diversity of our surrounding community. .
One of our activities is preparing a meal for "The Lord's Lunch"
Special events are posted in the parish's weekly announcements.
Each Sunday after the 10:00 service, we gather to greet each other, welcome newcomers, and visit with old friends and new. Weekly hosts are asked to bring light finger foods (fruit, cheese, crackers, cookies, etc.) We encourage all members to sign up to host, or to partner with a friend.

No experience necessary! Group members are happy to teach you how to knit and crochet - all tools and materials provided.
The Black Squirrel Piecemakers are a group of people who make quilts for babies in the community who are in need. We give the quilts to Project Linus who distributes them. We meet in the parish hall every Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until noon. No skills are required. Everyone is learning new skills. No sewing machine is required, but you nay bring one if you wish. We would love to have others join us.
The Socially Responsible Sweatshop is committed to repurposing landfill-destined textiles into useful, beautiful items. These items are lovingly crafted and priced affordably. Proceeds from the sales of these items are donated to provide extra funds for food-insecure community members and other social justice projects. The volunteers of the SRS strive to be helpful to our brothers and sisters while demonstrating responsible stewardship of our Earth and the protection of its environment.
SRS welcomes participation from folks of all abilities. We need sewists, people to cut out projects, and people to help with stuffing our mediation pillows. Regular hours are: Sunday and Monday 1-3 pm and Tuesday and Friday 10:00 am to noon at Christ Episcopal Church in the lower level. Enjoy fellowship and help to end food insecurity in Portage County.
