Acolytes and acolyte masters needed
Acolytes are a valuable ministry at Christ Church. By assisting with worship, it's a special way for young people to have a deeper connection with worship and their church. Our church community also enjoys seeing our young people serve as active leaders during worship. The tasks are easy, and the reward is great! Acolytes must be a rising 4th grader or older.

Adults are also needed to serve as Acolyte Masters, helping the acolytes on Sunday mornings. Any adult can serve as an acolyte master and many parents of acolytes find this to be a meaningful role. Training is provided. Interested? Contact Scott Arnold, whose contact information is listed in Realm, or Michael Compton.
Share your voice! Complete the survey for our Rector Discernment process
The CAT (Congregational Assessment Tool) is your chance to help our rector discernment process. Please make time to answer the 86 questions. This information helps determine our church's current vitality, the priorities of where we want to go, and the areas that need immediate attention. Your input is vital! (Paper copies will be available upon request: just let staff know you need one.)
Co-Ed Bike Ride this Saturday
Our men's ministry will host a Capital Trail bike ride on Saturday, Sept. 24 and everyone is invited, including significant others. Meet at the Charles City Courthouse parking lot at 10 AM to ride east (towards Williamsburg) for approximately 1 hour, then turn around and head back and eat lunch upon return. It is a wide, paved, mostly flat path and you can go at your own pace for whatever distance you are comfortable! Questions? Contact Rich Hull (contact information in our Realm Directory) or Michael Compton.
If you haven't yet donated to our drive for moms and babies, now is your chance
Our drive for CrossOver Healthcare Ministry is wrapping up and we're amazed at your compassion! Can you help us support this amazing organization that provides high-quality healthcare to those in need? Here is a list of items needed. We will offer a special blessing over these items this Sunday before we send them out to the mission field. Thank you for your generosity. Please contact lay leader Mary Susan John or Keith Tan with any questions you may have.
Confirmation Interest Meeting this Sunday at 10:15 AM
All youth in high school this fall (classes 2023-2026) are invited to participate in this year’s Confirmation class. If interested, please gather for an information meeting on Sunday, September 25 at 10:15 AM in the Garage Building.
A Prayer for our Transition
God of change and transition, we ask for your blessing as we move toward the call for a new rector. Help us stay faithful and steadfast during this time of change – committing ourselves to prayer, Bible study, and regular attendance in worship. Please enable the discernment committee to offer its best God-given gifts of wisdom, compassion, compromise, and deep faith as we discern the best choice to lead our church. We thank you, Lord, for blessing this work in your Kingdom. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen   
Giving to Christ Church funds ministries that make disciples
Funding the mission of the church is as important as ever. Lives are being changed through our mutual ministries and we couldn’t do it without you. Your support is a blessing that blesses others. Thank you!
