Vacation Bible School Update: God's Glorious Garden--A Home for All Creation
Adult and youth volunteers are preparing to welcome 25 campers for our parish's week-long VBS program. Our theme of Exploring Habitats in God’s Glorious Garden, is founded on Genesis 1, The Story of God’s Creation, with a multi-disciplined approach (art, crafts, Chapel worship, cooking, music, dramatic play, habitat research) to celebrating the diversity of animal and plant life in five different habitats. Together, we will learn about the blessings of protecting and caring for our common home.
You can support our efforts to Reduce, Re-Use and Recycle by donating: plastic lidded salad bins (med/lge); yarn; buttons, paper-towel tubes; craft beads
Help needed ASAP to organize clothing at the Stepping Stones Family Shelter in Rockville
on a weekday. This would take just 3-4 hours, depending on the number of volunteers. Please call Liz Quinn at 301-775-2545 or email her at
for details, and to coordinate times/dates.

The Planned Giving and Endowment Committee
oversees Christ Church's endowment, which funds capital needs and ministries beyond the scope of the annual operating budget of the church. Included are seed grants for new ministries. The committee invites proposals in August for a fall round of grants. As you commence the summer months, please consider ideas that can further our mission and apply! Questions?
