In the coming weeks, we will make our way through Scott Gunn’s book ‘The Way of Love: A Practical Guide to Following Jesus.’ The book is set up around different ways we can practically engage in growing our spiritual life as followers of Jesus. Each week we will reflect on a different verb that sums up some aspect of following after Jesus. Each short chapter contains a reflection from Gunn, a shorter anecdote, and questions for reflection.

In the coming weeks, we will make our way through Revelation with some help from Ward Ewing’s book ‘The Power of the Lamb: Revelation’s Theology of Liberation for You.’ This book is not a commentary on the text but an attempt to apply the lessons and meaning of Revelation for us today. Pairing Revelation and ‘The Power of the Lamb’ together should give a chance to discuss Scripture and an opportunity for those who want to dig deeper as well.

As a reminder, the Outreach Committee has decided to move our monthly collection day to the second Sunday of each month. Next Collection Sunday is October 9th. Our Focus: Dalewood Middle School. This year, Dalewood has asked us to help restock their empty emergency closet with uniform clothes and laundry detergent.

We hope you are making plans to attend the Pot Luck Lunch on Sunday, September 11th, after the 10:30 service! This will be our first all-parish social event in Fox Hall since COVID began, and we look forward to seeing our Christ Church family and friends, after a long hiatus. Please bring a side dish, salad, or dessert to share, and we will provide fried chicken and lemonade. To-go containers will be available for anyone who prefers to wear a mask

For the past couple of months, Outreach collected funds for school uniforms for 14 high-need students at CCSE. Christ Church is so generous! Thanks to you, we were able to buy the uniforms, and Jennifer Holdaway delivered them to the school a few weeks ago. The parents of these kids were overwhelmed, and so thankful. “I can’t believe a church would do this for me!” was the reaction of one of the mothers. Thank you for working with Outreach to

Thank you so much for your participation and generosity on June 12th! We collected 17 backpacks, 39 water bottles (14 will go to CCSE, the rest to Community Kitchen), 7 hats for the Kitchen, and 45 items for our porch pantry. As we mentioned last Exsultet, our July outreach focus will be purchasing school uniforms for 14 specific students in need. Please bring a donation by on Saturday or give online today and mark your donation “Outreach, Uniforms”. We thank you

We had a lot to show for our two hours in the cool shade for our first Collection Saturday. For MetMin, you brought us 144 rolls of toilet paper, plus 3 family-sized jars of peanut butter. Ben and Ginger Sanzo delivered the donations last Monday, and the folks at MetMin were thrilled to receive them, reporting that the needs in our community continue in their upward spiral. For the Bethlehem Center, you shared 19 huge boxes of cereal plus $50 for milk

On Saturday, May 14, a few members of our Outreach Committee will be in the Christ Church parking lot from 11 am until 1 pm, sitting at our umbrella table. Eagerly, we will be awaiting other parishioners (you!) bearing gifts of toilet paper and nonperishable food that we will be sharing with two of our ministry partners–MetMin and The Beth–as well as our own front porch pantry
