Christ Church youth are ready to help out!Thanks to Sarah Generes, Vestry rep for Hospitality, we now have an updated babysitter list and a newly created pet sitter list. You can access these from the LinkedIn Christ Church Group OR ask Megan or Melissa to send you the lists.

Join the Christ Church LinkedIN Group
In response to parishioner suggestions, the Vestry has created a private LinkedIn group to allow Christ Church parishioners to connect professionally.  On LinkedIn, search "Christ Church Winnetka" and click on our group name to request membership.  We encourage our younger parishioners who are away at college or who have recently graduated to join as well since many parishioners have expressed interest in mentoring others interested in their fields.
Please feel free to share job postings, professional development opportunities and your own posts that you would like to share to the group.  We will be adding some resources to the documents in the coming weeks.
If you do not have a LinkedIn Profile and would like help creating a basic profile to allow others to connect with you for professional advice, please contact Sarah Generes at  or 847-609-6098 for assistance.
