Christ Church,
For the month of May, we will send an email on Tuesday morning with opportunities to be the Church outside of the building, the Chronicle on Thursdays with more in-depth information, and a special email on Saturday with all the links needed for Sunday worship and formation.

We will continue to stream services even after we resume public worship. Our continued hope is to resume drastically modified forms of in-person worship on Pentecost Sunday (May 31), but this date is dependent upon on continuing updates from national, state, and local authorities. The vestry has formed a committee that has begun to work on a plan, so please look for updates in future emails.

Online Worship:
Sunday Morning: 10:30am Liturgy of the Word
Thank you again for your patience as we learn and experiment with technology.

Care in Community:
Christ Church is here for you.
If you are interested in participating in checking in with fellow Christ Church families, please email Honey Harris at  honey@christ-church.net . Please do not hesitate to reach out if you or anyone you know has needs (physical, emotional, spiritual, etc.) by emailing Fr. Walt at  walt@christ-church.net . Also, it is easy to feel alone or disconnected right now, so reach out to a friend, a neighbor, or one of the priests to say hello. 

Pastoral Emergencies – If you have a pastoral emergency, please call our pastoral care emergency line to speak directly with one of the priests: 850-462-5137.

Outreach:
The Mobile Food Pantry on Friday served over 200 families. Our hope is to host a few more distributions this summer, as the community need continues. Our next distributions are  June 5  and  June 19 . Please email  Honey  if you are interested in volunteering.
See Thursday Chronicle for more details and a list of other opportunities to serve.

EDS Graduation:
The Episcopal Day School has moved its graduation service online. We will share a link to participate this afternoon. 

We are in this together, so take heart. You are the Church, the Body of Christ in this world, and God is with you, now and always.
