Fellowship and Outreach Ministries
Christ Church has been involved in outreach ministries both within the La Crosse community and on a global scale. As a member of the worldwide Anglican communion, we have supported a host of overseas efforts in Pakistan, South Sudan, Kenya, Haiti, Zimbabwe, and many other locations. Closer to home, we are a part of the Diocese in Eau Claire and we partner with fellow churches throughout western Wisconsin to serve our neighbors. Within the La Crosse area, we work with many organizations to assist our community and provide services to those in need.
Our Diocese also has a long history of serving vulnerable populations. James Lloyd Breck and others helped the Native American population in the 1800s. In the 1970s and 80s, Christ Church provided education and assistance for Hmong refugees in the aftermath of the Vietnam War. Our connection with the Hmong community is celebrated with Hmong story cloths displayed in our church. Most recently, the Diocese of Eau Claire named Mother Tanya Scheff of Ashland and Chequamegon Bay as Canon for multicultural ministries. Much of her work focuses on helping Native communities in Northern Wisconsin while assisting multicultural efforts across the diocese.
These outreach efforts reflect our inner faith as we strive to walk with Christ, sharing love and hope. Please reach out to us about assisting with any of the outreach ministries. We always are looking for more volunteers!
