Service to the Community

Answering God’s Call In Our Community and the World

Service to our Capitol Hill community and the world beyond is a valued part of the life of our congregation. In addition to encouraging members to engage in their own acts of service and ministry, we regularly participate in organized ministries led by the Outreach Committee.

Our current partners and volunteer needs can be found below, but if you have suggestions, please don’t hesitate to send them to the office for forwarding to Committee Chair Eleanor Billington. 

Current partners

Join your fellow parishioners between services on the first Sunday of each month to prepare and distribute 100 full lunches to our homeless neighbors. Sign up to purchase supplies, oversee preparation, or deliver.

The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys was organized as the Episcopal Diocese of Washington’s response to the serious educational challenges facing African American boys in low-income communities in the DC area. The school, named in honor of the first African American bishop of the diocese, opened its doors in 2008 with a single class of 13. Today it serves 85 students in grades K-5. The school is supported by the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, Episcopal parishes, and individual donations.

Calvary Women’s Services are a full-service network designed to raise women out of homelessness. Sign up above to participate in our monthly dinner preparation to serve 20+ women living in Calvary’s transitional housing. Additional support or donations can be provided via their shop or Amazon wish list.

Episcopal Relief & Development is an outstanding disaster relief organization tied closely to the mission of our Episcopal faith. CC+WP has regularly supported its mission, and donated to several funds, including its US Disaster Relief Fund.

Everyone Home DC began as Capitol Hill Group Ministry (CHGM), a grassroots response by several Capitol Hill churches – including CC+WP – during the turbulence of the 1960’s to collectively address the challenges faced by their congregants and communities. Today the organization serves thousands of vulnerable individuals and families in Capitol Hill and across the District.

CC+WP works closely with Good Neighbors Capitol Hill – an organization comprised of eight diverse Capitol Hill congregations – to welcome and support refugees being resettled to the DMV area.

SMGW is a faith-based community partnership serving the greater D.C. area. It brings together our neighbors who face poverty, homelessness or other debilitating challenges with partner leaders, donors, volunteers, and staff in a shared ministry that aims to improve the lives of all throughout the Washington area, one step and neighbor at a time.

For more than a decade, Serve Your City has provided life-changing experiences and opportunities for at-risk DC students. Since March 2020, SYC has served as the infrastructure hub for Ward 6 Mutual Aid, a partnership of more than three dozen organizations—many of them hyper-local, Black- or Brown-led groups—that came together to share resources and save lives after the COVID-19 pandemic struck the District.
