Ichetucknee Springs Fellowship Day

Christ Church is going to Ichetucknee Springs on Saturday, August 13, 2022. We will caravan from the church parking lot at 7:00 a.m. to travel to Fort Worth, Florida, to Ichetucknee Springs State Park for a fun day of canoeing, kayaking, and tubing. You will want to dress appropriately and perhaps bring a light wrap to wear at the end of the trip. The waters there are a quite chilly 78°. Please plan to join us in this fun outing.
School Supply Drive

Community outreach, the first 2 Sundays in August we will be collecting school supplies for local public schools. Notebook paper, packs of pencils, rubber erasers, crayons, blunt nose scissors. There will be a bin in the narthex on August 7th & 14th.

Questions call? John McRae​​ 229-220-5619, school supplies coordinator. Thank you for your support.
Caritas Sing-a-long was held on Sunday, July 31, 2022 at the home of Gary and Nancy. A fun time was had by all who attended. We will be having another sing-a-long again in the future. Watch your bulletins for information.

Stuffed Animals for the CAC

CAC Project Update: Keep those stuffed animals coming. The Children's Advocacy Center appreciates our donations of stuffed animals to comfort the children who come to the center for appointments. They schedule over 125 appointments each month, so we can always use more. If you have questions, please contact Patricia Marks at, or Julia Ariail at Thanks for your help.
Sunday Evening Vespers - a group of Christ Church members meet on Zoom (2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays) at 6:00 p.m. to read the Compline Service, pages 127-135 in the Book of Common Prayer and for friendly conversation afterwards. The first and third Sundays of the month we will meet in-person, but will make an audio recording available after Vespers for those unable to attend in-person. To join the group and receive the link to the weekly gathering, contact Phyllis Hiers or call 229-563-2464.
