This Sunday at Christ Church 
Summer Park Service    
During the summer months, we celebrate the Holy Eucharist outside.  If you haven't experienced one of these services, you're in for a real treat. We worship at 9:30 in Maple Street Park at Maple and Sheridan. We hope you'll come in casual summer wear and join us for communion with nature, each other, and God.  Dogs are also welcome!!!!

In case of inclement weather, the 9:30AM service will be held at the Church on the Hill, 784 Sheridan Rd.

Weeding the Parkway
Join Debbie Ross this coming Saturday morning from 9:00 - 11:00AM. We will be weeding the parkway on Sheridan Rd in front of Church On the Hill . We could use as much help as we can get. Volunteers need to bring weeding tools and brown trash bags. We will cancel  and reschedule  if it rains.

Boy Scouts Renovate Nursery
Over the summer we are embarking on a renovation of our church nursery! First, we moved it to the room next to the current nursery, which is a bigger and better configured space. Then, an Eagle Scout candidate from Troop 18 volunteered to head up painting and decorating the room for his Eagle project, so last week six Boy Scouts plus a couple parents spent two days giving the room a fresh coat of bright white paint. Next: wall decor, a new rug (Rummage "new!"), and new rockers. Stay tuned!
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 4 Thursdays (June 22, 29, and July  6), 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.
