Serving Others


At Christ United, serving others is second only to loving God. We invite you to share your gifts and talents with those in need and be part of our transformational ministries. The life transformed may just be your own.

We offer an abundance of opportunities to serve others at Christ United. To expedite your search, we broke our ministries up into the following four categories based on the area of need that they address.

Sew Surgical Caps for our First Responders

We hope that people will help out our front line servants by sewing surgical capes or order some on-line to donate. You can drop off your hats at the first responder drop sites. Feel free to google pattern options based on your skills level and/or supplies.


Sew Or Purchase Masks for  Those in Need

We’ve been made aware of a need fir cloth masks for some local residents (about 100).  These clients are all formerly homeless, many with mental health issues as well as significant health concerns like diabetes that make them high risk for COVID-19.  Disposable masks have been hard for them to obtain, and without masks they do not leave their apartments, even to visit the food bank and doctors appointments. If you have any masks, handmade or otherwise, to donate you can drop them off at one of our drop off locations.
