Faith in Action:

Operation Bear Hug!

This is the first time we engaged in this ministry during the Christmas Season. Thank the leadership of Nancy and John Austin the entire parish participated in not only donating over 80 bears to be presented to shut-ins, nursing home residents and patients at Shore Memorial Hospital:

The Youth Group and Sunday School wrapped them in bows provided hand notes and parishioners volunteers to deliver the bears, where allowed to the people personally. The entire parish prayed over the bears at our 10am Service.
Christ Church Giving Tree

  • This Christmas through the ministry of our parish's ministry of the Brotherhood of Saint Andrew and the participation of the entire parish our Giving Tree provided Christmas presents for children of three nearby families in need. Your generosity was so great that re received more gifts than asked for and were able to help more children!
