EfM possibility
This Fall
EfM possibility. The Education for Ministry (EfM) program provides people with the education to carry out lay ministry through a program of study meeting one day a week.   Through study, prayer, and reflection, EfM groups move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God's kingdom. We are exploring the possibility of having an EfM class begin this fall at Christ Church with the Rev. Deacon Nancy Sartin Richardson leading it. If you are interested in participating, please email Father Dave  by August 1st.

A donate button is now set up on our website, as well as at the bottom of each Friday Bulletin.  This can be especially helpful during summer travel.

Lunch Bunch
Saturday, July 20, 2019 beginning at 11:00
Lunch Bunch will meet in the Parish Hall beginning at 11:00 a.m. on July 20, 2019. 

The Christ Church Valdosta Lunch Bunch feeds 120 or more hungry children every first and third Saturday of the month. Workers from the church as well as other members of the community who volunteer gather at 11 a.m. at Christ Church to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They pack them in plastic bags, then brown paper bags with logo stickers together with chips, fruit, juice and other healthy goodies purchased from the Second Harvest Food Bank. Volunteers are welcome.
Stitchers of Love
For years, the Stitchers of Love have been creating and donating countless prayer shawls, lap blankets, scarves, baby hats and blankets, and other items. We would like to invite our Christ Church family to visit  the Stitchers' shelf in the parish hall and to take home any of the tagged items as a comfort gift for yourself or to take to someone else.  Each has been made with love and prayers, and each has been blessed at the Christ Church altar. If you have any questions or would like help in choosing, see Frances Guice, Pepi Nelson, Patricia Marks, or any of the Stitchers.
