Three Nights of Evensong   
July 31, August 1 & August 2
Please join us on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, July 31, August 1 and August 2 as our choir presents music for its upcoming tour to Winchester Cathedral. Our choristers will sing Evensong on each of these three evenings at 8:00PM in preparation for traveling to England later that week. Music for each service will be lovely, prayerful, and inspiring. Can't be with us in England? Please consider joining us in Winnetka for a wonderful British cathedral music experience! We'd love to have you with us !
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. 
Update: Food Pantry Ministry
Great news, we have one family who has stepped forward to take on the leadership of this ministry, however, they wish to partner with another family or individual. Please let John Robertson (Vestry Rep) know if this might be YOU! Contact him at nostreborje@gmail.com

2017 Youth Mission Trip - South Dakota July 9-17
Our friends from Rosebud have joined our 2017 Mission Team for a Chicago adventure! They are 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!
