Tree Church Project
Join us for the 4th annual Tree Church Trail 5K Run & Walk at 8AM on March 4, 2017
Please join us for our 4th Annual Tree Church Project 5K Run / Walk and help us building Churches in Kenya for communities who worship under trees. The Diocese of Marsabit in the Anglican Church of Kenya is predominantly Muslim. As the Church has grown, these first generation Christians only have trees or outcroppings of rocks under which to worship. In 2014 Christ Church constructed a church building for the Samburu people in the Game Community of Marsabit. This community used to worship under an Acacia tree which was in danger of being washed away by a seasonal river. In 2015, we built a Church for the Boran people in the Elebor community, which had used an outcropping of a rock under which to hold their church services. This year, help us to build another permanent Church for the Gabra people of Maikona in the Marsabit Diocese of the Chalbi Desert in Northern Kenya and help our new brothers and sisters in Christ know the love of the greater body of Christ.
The Tree Church 5K Trail Run/Walk is being held at Charleston County’s new Laurel Hill Park in Mount Pleasant on Saturday morning, March 4, 2017. All of the proceeds will go directly to build a church in Goro Rukesa in the Marsabit diocese of Northern Kenya. Registration is only $25 and $15 for accompanying children; sponsorship levels begin at only $300. Prizes for overall and age group winners.
La Gonave Partnership with Churches in Haiti
Some 15 years ago, Christ Church contributed funds to build a church on La Gonave Island in Haiti called Church of the Holy Spirit. Christ Church continues to support Church of the Holy Spirit and its parochial school substantially by funding teacher salaries as well as supplying medical and other needs.
