You will find summary documents attached to this email--a summary of the Holy Cow survey, and a report of the Holy Conversations, which includes a spread sheet with the raw data from Holy Conversations.
 
Please read these documents and come prepared to ask whatever questions you have, for clarification, or to share impressions from the material.

A “ lite lunch” will be available during the Church-wide Caucus and the Search Committee report on July 31st. If you plan on eating please email the church office and sign up or see Pat Denmark this Sunday. She will add you to the list. An approximate head count will assist in planning the lunch. Childcare will be extended through lunch to make it easier for younger families to stay.

THE INFORMATION TO BE SHARED WILL HELP US UNDERSTAND AND SUPPORT THE SEARCH COMMITTEE AS THEY MOVE FORWARD IN THEIR SEARCH FOR OUR NEW RECTOR.

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. 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.
