Valentine's Day Care Packages
It's time to let our college-aged kids, and those serving in the military, know that Christ Church is thinking of them. It's one of the ways we love our neighbor as Jesus teaches.The Valentine's Day care packages are a little different this year, and we need your support to make it a success.

Thanks for the continued support. If you have any questions contact Kim or Ginny.

Here's to starting off 2021 with some love and goodies!

Beyond the Parish
"From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference"

Starting January 18 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day), The Episcopal Church launched "From Many, One: Conversations Across Difference,” a campaign urging Episcopalians and our neighbors to engage in the spiritual practice of listening and honest conversation across the many differences that separate us.

Resources from the Cathedral of St. Paul to support us during this time

Our siblings at the Cathedral of St. Paul in Boston have published this curated list full of resources of all kinds, grounded in our life in Christ, to help us through this time of Pandemic.

How would you spend $300 billion?
That was Andrew Carnegie’s net worth, in 1901, in today’s dollars.

He had just sold Carnegie Steel to J. P. Morgan. He was 66 years old. He had limitless money and no job. What to do? Read this week's organ notes to find out how some of the money was spent.
