"A Gift that Endures Creates a Church that Endures"
Have you remembered Christ Church in your will or estate plan?  Over 20 
parishioners have informed us they have.  Will you consider joining them?
A gift from your estate is a gift that continues to benefit the mission of Christ Church beyond your lifetime. We all want the parish to grow and thrive beyond our lifetimes; an enduring gift helps fulfill that hope.  
Please Join Us at Our Inaugural Dinner

At Christ Church, we conclude holiday festivities with our annual Epiphany Celebration, Sunday, January 7.
We will have special music and a visit from the Three Kings, who each process up the aisle bringing their gift and then sing a solo from the pulpit. The Three Kings are played by high school choristers who wear royal costumes and gem studded crowns. A beloved Christ Church tradition, this is not to be missed!
We invite all interested children to accompany the Three Kings up the aisle as their entourage. The children will dress in costumes and carry gifts, which will be food items for the Food Pantry, wrapped in silver and gold. This is the perfect opportunity for any children who were not able to participate in the Christmas Pageant, or for those who did participate and are ready for another dramatic occasion!
Will your child be joining us? We hope so! Please let Melissa Durbin know. Any teens wishing to help with costuming and wrapping gifts please contact Melissa too.
After the service the celebration continues with King's Cakes and other goodies. Children finding a jelly bean in their piece of cake get to wear (and keep) a golden, jewel-encrusted crown. Children may also join in on special Epiphany arts and crafts during the reception. The Three Kings will be circulating as well.
Please join us for Epiphany, the last day of Christmas!

A Heartfelt Thank You from the Men and Women
