When Christians Get it Wrong

Join us for this Christian Development offering. We’ll have some lively discussion utilizing DVD clips, scripture, and commentary, explore Christianity's harsher side, and learn how we can speak with openness, love, joy, and a desire to serve. Politics, judgment, salvation, sexuality, tragedy, and science are all on the menu! Peggy Driehorst will facilitate this group. The class will be in six sessions between April 8 and May 20, with the time and location determined by everyone who signs up. The cost is $6, and scholarships are available ( contact Mother Jenny). Registration closes on Easter Day, April 1. Register using the link below.
Notes from the Search Committee

The St. Christopher's Search Committee has been hard at work and meeting weekly to prepare to issue a call for our future rector. We have gathered information from as many sources as possible in an effort to aid our search. Events such as the Day of Discovery have been invaluable in providing direction as well as confirming our approach. As we finalize our work over the next several months and prepare to advertise our rector position, we want to begin a regular update to you on our progress and work. Please watch for future updates in The Weekly News. 

If you have questions, please direct them to our committee chair, Drew Bender:
