Support our Backpack & School Supplies Drive
Every year, the people of Christ Church commit to providing backpacks and school supplies for the students at George Mason Elementary School. We are blessed to be in partnership with GMES as part of Richmond Hill's Micah Initiative and provide support to the this school throughout the school year. Students and teachers at GMES face grave hardships and many children do not have enough resources to thrive at school. Your support is so needed and appreciated! Please consider purchasing a backpack and school supplies for these students and bring it to church by September 3. Click below for a mobile-friendly shopping list or pick up your paper copy in the milling area.
Save the date, Sunday, September 10 for the best block party in town!
Kick off a new year of ministry together by joining us for our Community Block Party.
All are welcome to a time of music, fellowship, and good food on the lawn at Christ Church. We’re inviting the congregation as well as neighbors of all ages to come together to celebrate. The bluegrass band East of Afton will play music outside from 4-6 PM, with the Keith Elgin Band picking up at 6 PM in the Garage. Food will be available by food trucks on an affordable pay-as-you-go basis and we’ll have low-key games for the young and young-at-heart. So bring your lawn chairs, invite your neighbors, and come prepared to meet new people and catch up with old friends.

Women's Summer Book Night
Get your book, give it a read, and then join other CCE women for a special night of discussion & fellowship. The book is “Soul Keeping: Caring For the Most Important Part of You” by John Ortberg .  In an age of materialism and consumerism that tries to buy its way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. With characteristic insight and an accessible story-filled approach, Ortberg brings practicality and relevance to one of Christianity’s most mysterious and neglected topics.

We will meet Wednesday, August 30, from 6:30-8:30 PM at Julie Finnegan's house to discuss. Invite your friends, all are welcome! RSVP to Becky Hansell at beckyhansell@gmail.com

Time for a change!
Christ Church is excited to move to a new kind of ministry tool called Realm. This online program and accompanying mobile app will support how you are involved in your church life. Not only will this improve work life for our clergy, staff, and lay leaders, it will make it easier for our entire church family to connect with each other, keep up with what’s going on, and grow as a connected community of people called to be the church.

Realm will replace CCE Online which means that for most of August, parishioners will have limited have access to CCE Online. Stay tuned for more details and look forward to the big invitation to join Realm this fall.
Our Sr. High Missionaries sing for residents of a retirement home in Logan, WV.
