We had a great time at Family First Sunday last week, celebrating Epiphany with crowns and stars. Make sure to join us when we meet again on
This Week at Christ Church
Sunday Supper in January
This Sunday, January 13!
One Sunday a month there's a chance for the parish family to come together for a simple supper and to worship in an informal setting. Maybe Sunday morning services are hard for you to make - lots of activities, not a morning person, cranky children - well this is a wonderful way to be together in a relaxed setting (and you don't have to worry about cooking!)
We hope you'll join us on
January 13 at 5:00 p.m. in Hinde Hall
. A quick RSVP by Thursday morning, January 10 will help us plan for dinner. Just
contact the parish office
and let us know how many there will be attending.
Adult Forums in January
Praying the Collects
The new year begins with a new forum series, Praying the Collects in the Book of Common Prayer.(BCP).
This Epiphany we are going to use the 9:00 a.m. forum time to more deeply explore the contents of the BCP.
Prayer is an essential way by which we are shaped into the very life God sent out "to do the work God has given us to do ." Come and take a closer walk with God; we hope you'll join us.

Service for Christian Unity
Annual event at Christ Church
Each year the Coronado Council of Churches holds a service of prayer for Christian unity. This year Christ Church will host the event on
Sunday, January 27 at 6:00 p.m. The service will feature The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori as speaker, Michael Morgan as soloist and Geoffrey Graham at the organ. There will be a small reception following the service.
Joining God at work in the world
There will be one service at 9:00 a.m., Sunday, February 24, followed by the annual meeting and a festive brunch. This is your chance to learn about Christ Church's plans for 2019 and to reflect on the accomplishments on 2018. The nominating committee has solicited candidates according to our parish by-laws to stand for the five vacant vestry seats. Vestry and Diocesan Convention delegates will also be elected at the annual parish meeting. Our parish bylaws also encourage nominations made in writing and given to the Nominating Committee Chair, Bob Ketts email@example.com

Food Collection - St. Mark's

The basic non-perishable items they can use are soup/stews, cereal and oatmeal, granola bars, peanut butter, pasta and sauce, rice, canned protein, canned vegetables and fruit, and single serve items for their unhoused visitors. Bring your contributions on Sundays or to the parish office Monday-Thursday.
What's Your Resolution?
Embarking on a new you in the new year?
"I'm going to be more fit...less stressed...more focused., but, "I'm uncomfortable at a gym...I'm on a budget...I don't have lots of extra time!" We all have excuses when it comes to looking out for ourselves, but yoga at Christ Church may be the answer. Exercise in a comfortable setting with your peeps; all levels are welcome.
Class, with instructor Rebecca Nagorski, meets on Tuesday evenings in Hinde Hall from 5:00-6:00 p.m.; and a donation of only $5 is requested
. Bring yourself in comfortable clothes and a yoga mat - we even have mats you can borrow. Give it a try, you're bound to like it!
From the Treasurer's Office
for donations made in 2018 will be available for
pickup on Sunday, January 20
. Look for the table in the courtyard to pick up yours! If you'd rather have your's emailed or snail mailed, just let
know; and she'll get it right out to you.
If you are making donations in 2019 via Realm, make sure to update your account with your 2019 pledge information! If you are not using Realm, our church management system, this is the year to get started. We hope to hold a workshop soon to help everyone register. Stay tuned for more info....
