Bishop Search Committee Invites You to Participate in Survey and Listening Sessions
The Bishop Search Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia invites you to complete the landscape survey to engage with them as they prepare to call the next Bishop of Virginia. They ask you to prayerfully respond to the questions and seek the Holy Spirit’s guidance as you do. The survey is anonymous and will be open until Friday, October 29. The Diocese wants a strong response from every corner of the Diocese, so please make time for this as you are able!
Attend a Virtual Listening Session
The search committee will conduct virtual listening sessions to give all members of the Diocese an opportunity to share your hopes for our new bishop. All listening sessions will be held via Zoom. Registration is required.
Tech Guru? Is that you? Consider being trained to assist our Audio Visual Ministry
At Christ Church, worship certainly is the work of the people. We are blessed by a few dedicated souls who assist each Sunday morning with sound, projection, and live-streaming of our worship services. This is a special way to give back to Christ Church and participate in worship in a meaningful way. If you'd like to learn more about helping with this ministry, please contact Keith Tan. Ample training is provided!
The sacrament of Baptism is a beginning. Is there an opportunity for Baptism in your life?
We begin a Christian life by being baptized. Through the water of Baptism, we are born into God’s family, and we become part of the Body of Christ, the Church. We receive forgiveness of sin and new life in the Holy Spirit.

Advent and Christmas are almost upon us. If you’ve been considering baptism for yourself or for your child, please contact Rev. Shirley right away to be scheduled for our baptisms on October 24 or November 7.
Spend some time at the farm and your spirit will be renewed! Your work = fresh food for folks with food insecurity

UPCOMING SERVE DATES: NOVEMBER 13 & 16
Christ Church is committed to serving one Tuesday and one Saturday each month. On Saturdays, we join our friends from West End Islamic Center, so it's an opportunity to provide food for those in need and extend a hand of hospitality to our Muslim neighbors. To sign up, please contact lay leader Kevin Van Natta. Kevin's contact information is listed in our online database, Realm. If you need help with Realm, or with obtaining contact info, please contact staff. We're happy to help!

Is Family Worship a good fit for you or someone you know?
Family Worship is ideal for kids, parents, and grandparents, as well as adults who enjoy being around the energy and spirit that comes from all ages being together.

Families will gather again this Sunday at 9 AM for a time of active participation from all ages. Bring your whole selves, move around, and worship God. The liturgy is meaningful and accessible, relevant to people of all ages and in all stages of life. If this fits you, please give it a try -- and please share with others who might enjoy this service!
