Special meeting to be held

Sunday, Oct. 14

At the June Bishop’s Committee meeting, there was a good discussion on how best to bring our discernment process to a fruitful conclusion. After reviewing the recent congregational meetings and responses to tour recent survey, it was agreed that we would call a special meeting in each congregation this fall, at which a motion to review and extend our current Covenant four an additional four (4) years would be offered. Included within that review would be provisions for our succession plan upon Fr. Chip’s retirement.

We’re looking for some

help at the altar

With fall having arrived, the time has come to start recruiting some new Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, and Acolytes for both of our churches. If enough people step forward for training, we can lessen the burden on all who serve in this capacity, as our ranks are presently thin enough we often have to schedule folks more often than once a month, which would be the ideal. Interested? Speak with Fr. Chip.

Inquirers’ Class now

underway

All sessions to be held at Trinity Church Monday evenings at 7 p.m. If you are new to the Episcopal Church, or perhaps are a long-time member who could use a brush-up on the things that make us who we are as Episcopalians/Anglicans, we invite you to join us Monday evenings at 7 p.m.  for our fall Inquirers’ Class. We meet in the Guild Room at Trinity Church. This winter, as the time approaches for Bishop Hirschfeld’s visit to Christ Church in late February, we will repeat the course for any who might wish to take it here at Christ Church. Our topic this coming Monday, Sept. 24: Church History: The struggles of the early Church, leading to the creeds and the challenges of the Church in the Medieval Ages, the Protestant Reformation on the Continent and in England. The birth of the Church of England in America and its transformation into the Episcopal Church we know today.
Dedication of the Ruth Power Memorial Pastoral Care Center - On Sunday, Sept. 16, members and friends of Christ Church, along with family members of our dearly beloved late pastoral care coordinator, Ruth Power, gathered to dedicate our new Pastoral Care Center in her memory.
