Vacation Bible Study...for adults! TODAY
 (Childcare provided)
This summer, while  most of the weekly study and prayer groups are on hiatus, we're trying something new! For 1 more Thursday , we'll gather in the McClain Room from 9:30-11:00AM for bible study. Our theme? Sabbath-keeping: what does (and doesn't) Sabbath mean? What does scripture say about it? How do we honor God in it, and how does God honor us? 

All are welcome. Come when you can. No advance preparation required. The church nursery will be open and staffed starting at 9:00AM....parents of little ones need bible
study too! Questions? Email Nadia.

Food Pantry Ministry Seeking New Leadership
We are looking for someone to head up the Food Pantry program at Christ Church. Could this be you?
Mary Anderson, currently head of this effort, is stepping down due to other responsibilities. We thank Mary so much for the passion and creativity she brought to this ministry!
As of August, this position will be open. Do you feel you might be called to help our neighbors who are experiencing food insecurity? This is a great way for newer members of the parish to get more connected, or for longtime members to find a new way to serve.
If you are interested, please contact Vestry rep John Robertson, nostreborje@gmail.com.
Are you new to Christ Church, or maybe not brand new but still feeling new? 
We are so glad you have found Christ Church, and we are eager to help you feel welcome! Please fill out a pew card and turn it in to an usher, so that we may get to know you better. Or, speak with one of our clergy who can get you connected with any of the ministries within the church that you might be interested in.

2017 Youth Mission Trip - South Dakota July 9-17
This Sunday, July 9, our friends from Rosebud join our 2017 Mission Team for a Chicago adventure! From July 9-12 we'll be working and touring side-by-side in Chicago and then driving all together to Wicoti Tiwahe to learn and make repairs at their camp through the 17th.
 
While we're traveling, please keep us in your prayers. Specifically, please pray for safe travel, the health, and safety of everyone, that we would continue to build good relationships with our friends and learn from them. Pray also for the many, many volunteers, and hosts who are making this week in Chicago not only possible, but fun and homey!
 
Thank you for your support of our youth ministry, which makes this experience possible!
