We hope you can join us for the benefit on Thursday, May 18, at 6:30 p.m. This year's event features live music and a roving illusionist, and live and silent auctions full of exciting trips and experiences, fine food and wine, and beautiful gifts for your home and family. Tickets to the benefit are $125 and can be purchased here

Our theme is “Building On Our Dreams,” reminding us that, only four years ago, we started with the idea of building a new outreach ministry in New York City that eventually led to a mission to serve families living in poverty with infants and young children.  Out of our hopes and aspirations, El Nido was born, and we now have a safe haven for these families in Washington Heights.

In addition to our Washington Heights ministry, Christ Church runs a number of other Outreach Programs:

  • Supporting our partners in Cartagena, Colombia, where education, spiritual growth, and micro-finance initiatives are bringing hope to an entire community.
  • Service to the homeless of New York City through our Sunday Sharing Table.
  • Our ongoing relationship with the residents of the Methodist Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation in the Bronx.
  • Programs dedicated to helping New York City children in need through partnerships with the New York City Mission Society and Concourse House, a residence for homeless women and their children.
  • Engaging our partnerships throughout the United Methodist Church, including the work of the United Methodist City Society and the United Methodist Committee on Relief.

If you have any questions about the benefit, feel free to contact our Co-Chairs, Lara Theriault (larat@me.com)  and Jin Hi Rheem (jinhirheem@me.com).
