DR Team Returns 
Go Team Says "Thank You!" To The Home Team
Late on Saturday evening, June 30, the missioners on the Go Team returned home -- very tired, but rejoicing at all of the wonders that they had seen. A brief report on the 2018 mission trip will be inserted in the Sunday bulletin on July 8, and if you would like to check it out now, click here. A longer report and a comprehensive photo album are in the works and will be linked here as soon as they are available.

On July 13, we plan to send all of the donated scholarship funds for the 2018-19 academic year to the Diocese of the Dominican Republic for use in the Episcopal K-8 school in El Pedregal. If you have already contributed for that purpose, thank you! If you would like to contribute, please make your check out to "Christ Episcopal Church - DR Scholarships" and place it in the collection plate on July 8 or deliver it to the church office no later than noon on Tuesday, July 10. A donation of $350 will support one student in this school for one year.
