This Week at Christ Church
Third Sunday after Pentecost

Tomorrow, June 10th: Our 10 am service will be a celebration of youth and children! We will honor our recent graduates, our Sunday School and youth group participants, our parents and adult volunteers, and our youth missioners to Queens, NY. After the service, please join us in the Undercroft to celebrate the end of school and the beginning of summer with an ice cream social - all parish children and youth welcome! Don't miss it!

Bible Study is cancelled this Sunday. Stay tuned for future announcements regarding meeting dates and which book we'll be studying next.

Thanks to all who donated, brought items, and came out to pack Comfort Cases this past Sunday! All told, we packed more than 70 bags for kids entering foster care! Many thanks to Liz Quinn, Lauren Robinson, Virginia "Boots" Sheard, and Charlie Briggs for bringing this project to fruition. An extra special thanks to Rob Scheer for taking the time to come tell his story and the story of Comfort Cases. We feel so proud and blessed to be able to support this unique and important ministry.
