The members of Christ Gospel Church work closely together on special volunteer and community outreach projects. This includes preparing food boxes for the Hope & Justice Project, an organization that helps people affected by domestic abuse and violence; they visit local convalescent homes, singing special songs, which they hope brings joy to those in care. The church also sponsors the Aroostook Area Agency On Aging, which provides a wide range of support services for older adults and their family caregivers.
