Christ Church Episcopal
living & loving more like Jesus every day
Scout Shout-Out! Thank you to all the leaders and parent-volunteers who minister through Scouting programs. Through Scouting, youth strengthen their character to prepare them for a lifetime of leadership. Special thanks to Adam Raderer, (above, right), who just retired as Troop 788’s Scoutmaster after 5 years of service.
Worship the Lord!
When we worship, we gather with others before God. We hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, give thanks, confess, and offer the brokenness of the world to God. Come, now is the time to worship!

Celebration to Follow
Be the hands of Jesus in the classroom
Christ Church has been blessed for many years to partner with Henry Marsh Elementary School through Communities in Schools. If you would like to serve at HMES as a classroom assistant, reading buddy, or tutor, please make plans to attend a brief training. This type of volunteerism is so rewarding and an excellent way to be the heart and hands of Jesus. Click the link at the bottom of this email to register and contact Keith Tan if you have any questions.

Pray for our Transition Process

God of change and transition, we ask your blessing as we move towards the call for a new rector. Help us to 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   

COMING UP...
We want to hear from you! We will share a Congregational Assessment survey in mid-September. Stay tuned for details and please prepare to share your thoughts.
Holy Baptism marks you as God's own, forever
Christ Church celebrates Holy Baptism in worship several times a year. If you are interested in learning more or would like to schedule a Holy Baptism, please contact Adam Williams, Minister to Families.
Giving to Christ Church allows us to serve others
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 your support. Your support is a blessing that blesses others. Thank you!
