This Sunday at Christ Church 
Faith & Practice
All people aged 12 and up are encouraged to participate in Faith & Practice this morning as our Youth Minister, Leah Romanelli, outlines plans for the mission trip this year. Since we are hosting our friends from South Dakota here in Winnetka for the first half of our time, we will need LOTS of congregational support and we look forward to sharing our ideas with you. This trip is open to all youth and their friends between the ages of 12 and 20.
Please bring a new (or gently used) teddy bear to church on Sunday. Teddy bears will be blessed at all three services - 8:00AM, 9:30AM and 6:00PM - then donated to the Department of Children and Family Services, where they will serve as gifts for abused or displaced children.
If you do not have a teddy bear to donate you can buy your teddy bears at Christ Church! Bears are between $5-25. 
Holy Water Hearts
Last Sunday the fifth graders made Valentines, using watercolors and water that had  been blessed, for the residents of Sunrise Memory Care. This Sunday we will be making lots more, this time for our friends at Grace House. Please stop by the cloister after the service and make one or two. It's easy and fun, and your efforts will be so appreciated!
