Serve With Us: See What God Can Do Through You

Serving others is a great way to form community and make Christ Church feel like family! We believe that God gave each of us unique abilities and talents so that we can be a part of transforming the world around us.

No matter your skill set, there is a role for you here! From our food pantry to serving in children's ministry, from Global Mission Trips to our new Missions Cafe, teams of friendly folks work together to build the Kingdom of God — and they could use your help.

Not sure where you'd like to plug in? No worries! Contact Kelly Shiell at or 630.321.6761.
