The Deacon Fund extends compassion to the Christ Church Chicago family to help meet acute material need. Anyone who is an intimate part of the Christ Church Chicago family—including church members and regular attendees—is eligible to receive financial support from the Deacon Fund. Funds are distributed through a committee of five Deacons, who may also elect to help global ministry partners under unusual financial circumstances or emergencies. Church officers and staff are also eligible for Deacon Fund assistance in some circumstances.
You may donate to the Deacon Fund during our special offering, traditionally taken on the second Sunday of the month. You may also donate online and choose Deacon Fund on the drop down menu.
