Salvation Army Giving Tree

at Christ Church

Christ Church begins its annual Salvation Army “giving tree” tradition on the first Sunday of Advent. Tags will be hanging from the tree for you to choose. Each tag lists the gender and approximate age of a child in need. You can buy a toy, plus something useful such as an item of warm clothing, and bring your present to put under the tree by this Sunday. There is also a box for canned goods to donate to the Salvation Army. A second tree outside the sanctuary will provide a place where you can donate hats, scarves and mittens for Cross Roads House. The same deadline applies to this effort.

Vicar’s Discretionary Fund

needs your help

With the arrival of Thanksgiving and Christmas, we come to the time of year when demand on the Vicar’s Discretionary Fund is the greatest. The money in this fund helps many people, both within but largely beyond our congregations. There is no overhead cost. It is flexible and convenient. It allows me to meet needs and know that the money is being used for the right reasons.   Please make checks payable to your own church, with the memo, “Vicar’s Discretionary Fund.” Any amount is appreciated. Thanks, on behalf of those you have helped, for your support.

Journeying the Way of Love

Joint Advent program at Christ Church

For the season of Advent, Christ Church is hosting the Episcopal Church’s new curriculum, “Journeying the Way of Love.” This program consists of four sessions centered on the coming of Christ as revealed in the first two chapters of the Gospel of Luke. Luke’s gospel provides a pattern for understanding how we can live the Way of Love as individuals, as families and friends, as a community, and out in the world. This program will be offered each Sunday of Advent at noon in Christ Church’s Education Room. Participants will be encouraged to read and reflect on a series of passages in Luke throughout the season of Advent and “try on” the spiritual practices of the Way of Love. To accompany this curriculum, participants will also receive a copy of the Journeying the Way of Love Advent Calendar, which offers daily suggestions for engaging in the seven practices that encompass the Way of Love. When the group gathers each week, participants will reflect with one another on how they experienced taking up the practices in the calendar. This program is free and open to all in both congregations. Join us as we Journey the Way of Love.
