2018 General Convention
As you probably know, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church, which happens every three years, took place recently in Austin, Texas.  Christ Church member Molly Stevenson was a delegate from the Diocese of Georgia.  Here is a link to an article from the Episcopal News Service summarizing what took place there.  We remain grateful for Presiding Bishop Michael Curry's continued emphasis on the love of God in Jesus Christ.
Here is a link to the eCrozier on Bishop Benhase's reflection on General Convention. 
Lunch Bunch
Saturday, August 4, 2018 beginning at 11:00 a.m.
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.

DR Trip - One of Many Teams
We're in a photo album with other 2018 DR teams
Our DR mission team is one of many that come from the United States to the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic each year. The Dominican Development Group, a consortium of the Episcopal dioceses with companion relationships with the Diocese of the Dominican Republic, maintains an online album with one photograph of each of those teams in chronological order by date of arrival. You can check out that album here. Can you find the Christ Church team? (Hint: we're the ones in green t-shirts.)

Work on the "100 best photos" album from the DR mission trip is still continuing, so look for that link next week. The comprehensive photo album of the trip is online here, and the report is online here
