Christ Community Outreach Center
WHO WE ARE
Just as we believe God specifically has placed Christ Community Church campuses in strategic geographical locations, we also believe God has called us to the Pleasant Street Neighborhood in DeKalb. Within the 1-mile radius there is a high immigrant community, including many single mothers and at risk youth.
Just as the early church in Acts, our heart is to be the physical demonstration alongside the Gospel message within the Pleasant Street Neighborhood. The purpose of the Christ Community Outreach Center is to create a bridge within the community to serve people in under-resourced neighborhoods by facilitating ongoing life-enhancing services that result in transformative experiences with Jesus.
WHERE WE ARE

DAY OF SERVING
The Christ Community Outreach Center kicked off the summer with our first outreach event on Saturday, June 12th! Due to the pandemic, the building was in need of some cosmetic updates. Together with the amazing help and generosity of the DeKalb and St Charles campuses, we had almost 50 people serve that day! It was a great time of service, but most importantly fellowship. We are so grateful for having such wonderful volunteers to support us, and look forward to doing this each and every year moving forward!
Thanks to everyone who helped make this day such a success!

At Neighbor's House, the goal is to help students reach their potential through literacy enrichment and healthy relationships. Each summer, they run programs across DeKalb County to provide literacy enrichment, social/emotional support, and relationship building for students in under-served communities and income-eligible housing. During the school year they provide homework help, literacy support, and healthy adult interaction for students. To find out more about how to get involved, check out their website.
