From our church members and friends of Belle-Terrace Church and a few of the local stores in our community and surrounding communities, we have received donations of food, store gift certificates, clothing, appliances, toys, school supplies and furniture. We are very grateful to you for helping us to keep this project going and we pray that you will continue with your donations of clothing, food, etc. We do appreciate you and offer a very hearty thank you for your support. On a regular basis, we send clothes to Haiti, we take clothes and bread to Freeman Personal Care Home, Daisy Vincent Personal Care Home and clothes and blankets to the homeless. We have also participated in the preparation of hot meals and delivered food to the homeless. However, our primary concern is to ensure that our local clients are properly supported from our pantry with food, clothing, toys, school supplies and furniture. One of our pet projects is the giving of Thanksgiving Baskets. We have given from 30 to 52 Thanksgiving baskets every year in addition to the number of clients we serve monthly. These baskets contain enough food for a family of four or more.

The signature ministry of Christ Church is the Soup Kitchen, which operates every Saturday. This is an important day to hold the Soup Kitchen as many other social service agencies do not offer assistance on the weekend. Volunteers from around Augusta come to Christ Church every weekend to help feed the hungry. The Soup Kitchen is one of Augusta’s busiest, and served over 10,800 meals in 2011. Many of these meals are served to children and families. The Food Pantry is operated by Christ Church on a monthly basis. We offer food to families and individuals with a valid ID on the third Thursday of every month beginning at 11:00 a.m. A similar ministry is the Clothing Ministry which provides clothing to those unable to purchase it. Clothing and other donated items are distributed at the weekly Soup Kitchen and monthly Food Pantry. Christ Church has also entered into a partnership with physician assistant students at the Georgia Health Sciences University who run a medical screening clinic one Saturday per month at the Soup Kitchen.
