Evensong - Sunday, January 29
The Christ Church Choir will sing Evensong at 4:00PM this Sunday, January 29, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 939 Hinman Avenue in Evanston. We will be singing together with the St. Luke's Choir. Music for the service will include choral works by Stanford, Byrd, and our own Richard Clemmitt. Please join us for a lovely, peaceful service, sung in the gorgeous, cathedral-like worship space of St. Luke's.

Youth Ministry Intern Tanner Walsh
For the month of January, Christ Church was blessed to have Tanner Walsh working with us as our first ever Youth Ministry Intern. Tanner used his J-term at DePauw to lead youth ministry events and learn about the different aspects of running our church. Check out our Thought of the Day this Monday in which Tanner shares his experience here. Many thanks to Tanner from the entire Christ Church staff for all his hard work!
            This past week we gained three new acolytes in our fantastic group of 40! Tanner Walsh helped organize this evening with a little bit of training and a lot of fun. Please enjoy the video!
