The annual flea market is held in September to raise monies for the church. The flea market has been running for over 25 years and is our biggest money making event to be used for the “church’s wish list” as suggested by the rector.
“Survivor’s Day” is recognized by the WOCC in many different ways – once we danced, distributed bookmarks, etc.

The Ark – located in Baltimore City is a daycare for children of homeless parents so their parents can go to school or look for jobs. Several members of WOCC go on a monthly basis to read and play with the children. We also decorate t-shirts in the spring and sweatshirts in the fall as gifts for the parents to give their children.
Springfield Hospital – located in Sykesville, MD – members of WOCC go to Springfield monthly to socialize and play games with the residents. We invite the residents to Christ Church in June for a picnic. Also, at the Christmas dinner we collect wrapped gifts for the residents of Springfield.
