Serve in the Community

The call of Christian service is not only to the church, but, even more, to the world.  As members of the Grosse Pointe and metro-Detroit community, Christ Church members are involved in countless ministries across Detroit.  As a community, Christ Church also organizes several service projects and opportunities throughout the year with our various ministry partners.  For more information about our outreach ministries, or to suggest a new partnership or opportunity, please contact the Rev'd Areeta Bridgemohan, 313-885-4841 ext 121, or

Opportunities to Serve at Buckets of Rain

Mercado Food Bank

Serve at Mercado Food Bank

Saturday, January 21, 2017 - 9 am - 1:30 pm

Join us to volunteer at the Mercado in partnership with Grosse Pointe Memorial Church. The Mercado is a charitable food bank that operates as a grocery store. Volunteers assist with item selection, re-stocking shelves and getting food into cars. Spanish or Arabic as a second language is a plus - but is not required to help. There are 5 spots available – on a first come first served basis.

Crossroads Soup Kitchen

Serve at Crossroads of Michigan
Sunday, May 7, 2017
8:30 - 11:30 am or 11:30 am - 3 pm

Crossroads of Michigan is a social services agency that provides counseling services, transportation assistance, food and clothing to people in need in the Detroit area. Its biggest outreach program is a soup kitchen that serves between 600 and 700 people every Sunday.

Take Them a Meal

Friends and family taking meals to those in need.

Sometimes our friends and community members are going through a transitional time – perhaps they have pastoral needs, such as an illness (hospitalization or rehabilitation) or experienced a loss in the family, or maybe they have a new baby.  If you would like to help this family by assisting with meals for a period of time, please fill out the form below and we will contact you and the recipient to finalize the details.

Summer Starters

Summer Sunday's starting June 25 following the 10 am Service

Every year many of Detroit children start their summer days hungry. Throughout the summer months, when children who rely on school breakfast programs often go without, Christ Church volunteers gather to make difference.

Every summer Sunday, following the 10 am service, we'll roll up our sleeves to fill 50 breakfast bags with seven healthy and hearty breakfast meals, to be distributed to low income children through Crossroads' Summer Lunch program.
