Loving others = Serving others
We believe in serving outside of the four walls of the church. There are many great organizations in our community that we partner with to make a difference. You can be involved in everything from working with children and youth, to feeding the hungry and meeting the medical needs of those who have no access to care. Time commitment varies on the opportunity.
Christ Community Church & Manna Worldwide have partnered to establish an exciting relationship to help missionaries in Guatemala minister to children and families in need through their continuing efforts to build and sustain churches, feeding centers, and orphanages. CCC has been blessed with a unique opportunity to support, both financially and physically, a newly established feeding center in Rama Blanca, Guatemala. Also, Christ Community has been able to support and lead to the establishment of a church down there as well. To find out more about Manna Worldwide, click here.
