This Sunday at Christ Church
Our guest preacher this Sunday will be The Rev. Andy Guffey. Andy is chaplain of the Canterbury House, the Episcopal campus ministry at Northwestern University (and a Christ Church benevolence grantee). He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia and teaches New Testament at two seminaries in Chicago. Curious what's going on at Canterbury Northwestern? Come find out! After spending the morning at Christ Church, Andy and the Canterbury team are hosting an Open House: this Sunday, May 27, 3:30-5PM at 2010 Orrington Ave, Evanston. Come hear more about new ministry initiatives they're launching, and meet some of the students involved. 
Our 9:30AM service this Sunday, May 27 will include a lovely anthem from the recent Royal Wedding:  
"If Ye Love Me" by Thomas Tallis.
There is no formal program today.  
Please join us in the Prevost Cloister for coffee.
In observance of Memorial Day,
the office will be closed May 28.

June 3rd, Faith & Practice - Our Faith Legacy in Practice
Please join the 2040 Committee at a unique Faith & Practice on Sunday, June 3rd, for a presentation from Parishioner, Tom Kuhns reviewing the history of Christ Church.

The discussion will include the original founding principles from 1876 and their evolution today.

The latest "2040 Question" builds on Rev. Rod Quainton's sermon on Sunday, May 6 and available here. Later, Faith & Practice featured a conversation on the subject of Evangelism and how is God active in your life? How do you tell others this good news? With that conversation as inspiration, the latest 2040 question is...When you meet a neighbor, how do you share your experience of Christ Church? 
Tell us your thoughts via this link or via the Prevost Cloister box. 
Direct your questions or interest in contributing to the 2040 Committee. Peter Macey   or Molly Hufton
