We are always in need of volunteers and donations! Small acts transform the world. Be part of something bigger than yourself.
There are many ways you can help us at Victor’s Vittles.
If you would like to help, please contact the office at email@example.com or stop by during our hours of operation Saturdays.
One of our "crown jewels" of ministry is Victor's Vittles. This ministry has been in existence for over 15 years. Our members recognized the need...the basic need for food by members of our community. Answering God's call, they created this ministry where members of the community who are in need may come once a month and shop for their food needs. This operates 52 weeks out of the year, weather permitting in the winter, with a dedicated group of volunteers. You are invited to come check it out if you want to volunteer and community hours for students are also given.
We are also searching for other ways to reach out to the larger community. Our social ministry team constantly seeks ways to be a voice in the community and working with the community to bring God's kingdom of community and care into Carney/Parkville area.
Our social ministries consist of:
-Women of the ELCA
-Prayer Shawl group
Christus Comforters meet weekly to make quilts for those in need. We welcome anyone who wishes to join in the fellowship of working together. There are many components to the making of a quilt, such as color coordination, planning, cutting, serging and sewing. Or you can just join us for fellowship, you do not need to sew.
The New Beginnings of Hope Group is a 12 Step Program of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) who meet at Christus Victor weekly. They come together to discuss and help each other cope with the effects of alcohol on themselves and their families, and to understand the disease known as alcoholism.
There are no dues or fees associated with belonging to the group, but a collection basket is passed at each meeting to help defray the expenses of coffee, snacks (which are served at each meeting) and a donation to the church for the use of the hall. The group is open to anyone who feels they have a problem with alcohol in any way and wishes to seek help regardless of race, creed or sex.
Feel free to come to a meeting if you are interested and meet with a group of people whose only purpose is to stay sober and help others to learn a better way of life. Check the Events Calendar for the latest schedule.
