Sunday Worship
In the courtyard at 10:00 a.m.
We are so fortunate to have our lovely courtyard in which to safely gather outdoors for worship. We look forward to seeing you at 10:00 a.m. this Sunday; please check in at the front gate upon arrival. Children ages 4 to 11 years of age are invited to join Children's Chapel during Sunday worship. They gather in the outdoor classroom at the flagpole and rejoin their families at the Peace. Children ages 4 & 5 are asked to bring an adult with them to the program.

If you are unable to join us in person you may access the service live on Facebook.

Come and Pray, Stay to Play!
Connections for families beginning in May
Come and Pray, Stay to Play is a brand-new offering that will begin in May. Two Sunday's each month, families are invited to enjoy the playground together after church. This time of laughter, freedom, and fun is the perfect way for children and grownups to connect!

The first Sunday of the month, beginning May 2, 2021, will be for our youngest children (ages 1-5) and their families. The second Sunday of the month, beginning May 9, 2021, will be for our elementary aged children (ages 6-11) and their families.

For more details about the exciting plans and important protocols for each age group's gathering please visit the Christ Church website.
Parish News
Baptisms on Pentecost
A joyous Pentecost event
Baptism is initiation. When you are baptized, it means that you belong to something. It is your entry into belonging to the community of the church through a ritual immersion in water and the invocation of the Trinity. Baptism marks the beginning of the Christian life by water and the Holy Spirit.

It's been over a year since we've offered baptisms and we are so pleased to resume them this coming Pentecost Sunday, May 23. If you have a child or family member who is interested, contact Mtr. Regan directly. The baptismal preparation will be May 22, the Saturday prior.
