Parish News
Meet-up with Megan for a milkshake!  
Megan Miller, our new Youth Minister, is excited to be here and can't wait to get to know you better! She is enjoying meeting everyone and would love to spend time with our youth and families - or anyone else from the congregation who has participated in Youth Ministry or would like to. Although we consider middle and high school students "youth," soon-to-be youth would also be a delight to get to know, too! All are welcome. She wants to learn more about you, what you enjoy most about Christ Church, and the ideas you have for the future! To schedule a time to meet for ice cream, coffee, or a meal, send her an email at megan@christchurchwinnetka.org  
or sign-up using this link or the Christ Church website's Youth page. 
Grand Receipts Total $2,036 Year to Date
Many thanks to everyone who turns in their Grand receipts.  That simple act raised $2,036+. This fundraiser will continue indefinitely, so keep bringing your receipts to church!  We even have a collection can at the park services.
Summer Travel Church Experiences  
With the 4th of July kicking off summer travel, the 2040 Committee would like to gather your experience visiting other churches over the summer. We also want to capture other church experiences for those of you lucky enough to leave during the Chicago winters. 
Whether your head up north to Michigan or Wisconsin, warmer climates like Arizona or Florida, overseas, downtown or anywhere in between we'd like to hear about your faith experience outside of Christ Church. We hope to learn what resonated with you during your visit. By understanding what other parishes are doing well, we may find inspiration for experimentation at Christ Church and, most importantly, reinforce what is special about the Christ Church experience. 
Please share your experience via this link. Safe travels to all and don't forget your sunscreen!
Youth & Children's News

Parents and caregivers, you and your little ones are invited to a weekly Christ Church playdate! Every Wednesday morning this summer, we will be meeting in the McClain Room and the adjoining patio from 9:30-11:00 for some fun playtime. We will have lots of toys, a simple snack, and coffee for the grown-ups!  Friends are welcome. Questions? Contact Melissa Durbin, or Patty Lea.  
No need to RSVP, just stop in if you can!
