The Outreach Committee of the Episcopal Church of Christ the King and Holy Nativity, Sturgeon Bay and Jacksonport, selected “Cradle to Career” as the recipient of its second-quarter 2019 outreach grant. The church has pledged one thousand dollars per quarter to local community service programs, in addition to its continuous support of the Lakeshore CAP food pantry.
Door County Cradle to Career is a program of the Lakeshore CAP (Community Action Program). It serves Door County residents who are pregnant or are parenting at least one child under the age of five years. Case manager Kris Miller connects families with resources that help meet basic needs and supports parents as they work toward educational, career and financial goals.
The Door County Episcopal Church of Christ the King and Holy Nativity is making the Christ the King facility in Sturgeon Bay available for retreats for small groups within congregations of the Diocese of Fond du Lac. The facility can handle groups of about 20 participants.
Such group retreats could include youth groups, Bible study groups, or a congregational vestry that is looking for a place to meet away from their own church. Such retreats could be a day-long event, or for overnight stays.
The sanctuary is available for worship. The former rectory includes the upstairs, with two bedrooms, a long hallway, and a bathroom with shower.
The main floor of the rectory includes a living room (seating 12 comfortably), a dining room, a fully furnished kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher, and two restrooms.
The basement is a large open room for activities or for sleeping.
For use as an overnight stay, the participants would be responsible for their own supplies: cots, air mattresses, sleeping bags, and linens. There are several grocery stores in the area, and many fine restaurants. The activities in Sturgeon Bay/Door County are bountiful.
There is a small charge for custodial services, and a contribution toward the cost of water and electricity is welcome.
The facilities are not available for personal or private use, but for congregations of the Diocese only.
