Church Renovation Begun
The Sanctuary Renovation has begun.  The renovations will include new flooring, new "cathedral red" carpet in the tower and chancel, newly painted walls and ceiling, new light fixtures in annex to replace the fluorescent lights, and other cosmetic details.  
During the renovation work all weekly services-including Sunday morning 8:00 and 10:00 services and Sunday evening 6:00 vespers, Wednesday evening 6:00 service, and Thursday morning 7:00 service-will be held at their usual times in the Parish Hall.  
We are asking all members and visitors to enter the Parish Hall via the south side entrance for services (breezeway doors closest to the Gabard building).  
We bid your prayers and patience during this renovation work, we thank you for your generous support of Christ Church, and we look forward to worshipping soon with you in our renovated sanctuary.
Dominican Republic Mission Trip
Monday, June 12 - Monday, June 19, 2017
Father Dave will be out of the office June 12 - June 22, 2017 for a trip to the Dominican Republic and some personal time after. Please call the church office if you need any assistance. 

Please keep the entire DR Mission Team (Julia and Julius Ariail, Leeann Culbreath, Bonnie Hanson, Caroline, Meg and Phyllis Heirs, Dave and Paul Johnson, Jim Lacy, Bill Querin, Fred Richter, Paul Stevenson, Erin Twomey) in your prayers this week as they travel and work alongside the Episcopal congregation in the village of El Pedregal in the Dominican Republic.
Lunch Bunch Needs
First and third Saturdays each month
We need fruit cups for Lunch Bunch.  Please consider picking up a six pack of fruit cups when you do your family grocery shopping.  The children love the fruit and the Lunch Bunch volunteers appreciate it. 
Prayers for the "Go Team"
DR Mission Trip is June 12-19, 2017
The fourteen missioners on your Dominican Republic mission team are in good health and have completed most of their projects. The concrete floor on the house for Leidy and her family is finished now, the VBS classes conducted, new basketball rims and steel chain nets installed, 56 dogs and cats vaccinated for rabies - and all of that was done while working with old and new friends in the village of El Pedregal.
The team comes home on Monday, June 19. Please continue to pray for the success of our final days in the Dominican Republic and for save travel back to our homes.

May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you
Wherever he may send you
May he guide you through the wilderness
Protect you through the storm 
May he bring you home rejoicing
At the wonders he has shown you
May he bring you home rejoicing
Once again into our doors.
Stitchers of Love
Sunday, July 16, 2017 beginning at 4:00 p.m.
Stitchers of Love will take a short break due to Father's Day, and the weekend before the 4th of July.  We will take up our group needles again on Sunday, July 16, 2017 in the Parish Hall from 4-6 p.m.  Bring your projects and a friend.  You do not need to know how to knit or crochet, we have plenty of teachers.
2016 Audit Complete
The 2016 Audit of Christ Church's Financial Records has been completed by Tillman & Tillman, LLP. Our financial records are in good shape.  Thank you to the dedication of our bookkeeper, Amy Creasy and our Treasurer, Amber Tanner.
Soup Kitchen Help Needed
Tuesday, July 4th 
For the third year Christ Church is preparing bag lunches for 200 people who depend on the Soup Kitchen for meals.  

T his year our day is Tuesday, July 4.  We are finished with everything by 1:00 pm, so you'll have time to enjoy July 4 festivities with your family.  

We need contributions to purchase food and supplies, sandwich makers and lunch packers on the morning - 9:30 until 11:00 - volunteers to distribute the meals at the Soup Kitchen, volunteers to bake the turkey breasts the weekend before.  

If you can help with any of these, please contact Sandra Fletcher,  or 244-5033.  

If you would like to make a monetary contribution for this ministry, please send your checks to Christ Church with a notation that it is for the Soup Kitchen lunch.  

Thank you so much for your support of this important ministry.
