Outreach at the Cathedral

The 5000 Club

Our 5000 Club food ministry began in the spring of 2006 as an effort to provide the hospitality of a weekly evening meal to those who in live in our neighborhood, including those without a home to call their own. The program quickly grew to where we are serving close to 200 meals a week, thanks to a strong corp of volunteers. They range from members of our cathedral and other area churches to individuals who simply want to help. Join the effort. Volunteers are always needed, particularly cooks.

Native American Ministry Council

The Native American Ministry Council of Christ Church Cathedral has been active since 1984, as the result of a bequest from Nina F. Lansley. The Council provides hands-on outreach by witnessing for, and building awareness of, the contemporary needs, values, and traditions of Native American cultures in the US and Canada; contributes to the education and theological development of leadership within Native American communities; supports initiatives to empower Native American societies and ministries related to life needs, cultural sustainability, and spiritual growth within Native American values.

Plumb Line

Founded in 1988, our Plumb Line ministry today is one of our congregation’s primary ministries. It is administered by volunteers and funded by the cathedral’s Mission Endowment Fund and the Outreach Committee. Volunteers work out of a cathedral office to help people who are facing eviction from their homes or who are in need of a gift from our food pantry. Fifteen social service agencies refer people to the Plumb Line. We serve more than 300 people a year and commit over $100,000 annually to the work of this ministry.

Community Grants

The Cathedral supports organizations that help those who cannot help themselves, and organizations that walk with Christ Church Cathedral in promoting reconciliation, social justice, and advocacy. Grant dollars are awarded to organizations that house, feed, and clothe the poor. However, the cathedral also believes in addressing the causes of poverty and routinely awards grant funds to groups that foster mentoring and educational programs to break the cycle of poverty.
