Calling All Former Choristers! 
Please help Christ Church celebrate Richard and Elizabeth Clemmitt!
 
This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Clemmitts' time with us as the leaders of our amazing music programs. We will celebrate Richard and Elizabeth's wonderful ministry at Christ Church on Sunday, September 10 at the 9:30AM service. All former choristers are invited to join us for this wonderful celebration! The participation of as many alumni choristers as possible is an important part of the morning!
 
Attendance at the 8:15AM rehearsal on the morning of September 10 is all that is required. Please let Robin Anstaett know by September 4 if you will be able to join us -- either by e-mail (robinanstaett@aol.com) or by phone (847.644.2268) so that Richard can plan accordingly.
 
Parents of Alumni Choristers: Please help by sharing this invitation with the chorister alumni in your family. Thank you!!
 
A Daily Devotional 
Everyone on our Choir Trip to Winchester Cathedral will not only be supplied with great music. They will also have a copy of A Daily Devotional booklet put together by Rod Quainton. It contains selections from Holy Men, Holy Women which have been chosen by Rod to capture the sweep of Anglican history through the contributions made by musicians, composers, artists, poets, and writers, who through their talents give us an insight into Christianity and spirituality. There are copies available at the back of the church (for the 8AM service) and on the refreshment table (for the 9:30 service) if you would like to follow along with the Choir Trip. Link to the pdf. 
Grand Receipts 
Many thanks to everyone who turns in their Grand receipts. This fundraiser will continue indefinitely, so keep bringing your receipts to church!  We even have a collection can at the park services.

1. To update our information on allergies and special needs/requests.
2. To get accurate classroom numbers so we can plan accordingly.
3. Because we are super excited to have your children at Christ Church and we can't wait to see who's coming!

This is for all children from the Nursery through 8th grade. Any questions, please contact Melissa Durbin, melissa@christchurchwinnetka.org  or 847-446-2850.
