 Outreach | Missions 

The purpose of our outreach at St. Christopher’s is to live into our Baptismal promises that, by word and example, we seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves. We serve others by concentrating on the basics: love, food, warmth, and shelter. Through outreach and development, we take our lives outside the walls of the church. We are active with non-profit organizations individually and corporately. The intention is to be out in the world as the people of St. Christopher’s and, ultimately, the body of Christ.

 Houston Elementary School 

Every year, members of St. Christopher's provide school supplies for each student at Houston Elementary School. During the summer, money is collected, supply lists are checked, items are purchased in bulk, and individual bags are packed. The week before school begins, bags are distributed. 

 Adopt-A-Box 

Each Sunday parishioners donate food and household goods to help Adopt-A-Box for a Haven family. This box will go with them when they move into their own home.

 Share the Warmth 

Parishioners collect blankets during the winter for distribution to the Red Cross and the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office. These organizations, in turn, give the blankets to people in need.

 The Haven 

St. Christopher's Episcopal Church has adopted the Haven as one of its primary ministries. Services offered include encouragement, through outings such as picnics, and the Adopt-A-Box program.  

The Adopt-A-Box program provides food and supply boxes for those who move out of the Haven into permanent housing. Household supplies and food collected every Sunday will be stored and boxes made for families as needed.

St. Christopher's members also participate in the Sertoma Club's Auction for a Cause in support of the Haven. Each Fall, items to be auctioned off are collected by parishioners.
