SUNDAY SUMMER FELLOWSHIP ON FRONT LAWN All are welcome to join for tea, lemonade and fellowship on the front lawn of the church immediately following the 9am service each Sunday.  We thank Carol Smith for hosting today’s fellowship.



As a direct result of you sharing your thoughts and concerns using the congregational questionnaires and conversations, we are implementing a few changes that will improve communication within our congregation: 

1)       During these last few weeks of summer, we are testing a new format for the announcements on Sunday mornings.  In an effort to be more focused and less intrusive, one of your vestry members will read the announcements. Anyone who wishes to include an announcement must submit it to Rita by 9 am on Thursday mornings.  

2)       In an effort to improve communication and transparency, the vestry minutes for each meeting will be available in the book rack located in the foyer outside of St. Joseph’s hall (next to the water fountain).  Vestry meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7 pm, September through June; all meetings other than executive sessions are open to parishioners, so please feel free to attend. 

3)      Parish Ministry Sunday - mark your calendars for November 9th when you will have the opportunity to learn about the variety of ministries here at Christ Church.  We hope you will use this occasion not only to learn about the ministries but also to discern where you feel called to devote your time and talent as well. 


STARFEST BAZAAR NEEDS YOU!   Mark your calendars now for this parish-wide event November 14-16.  Starfest will feature a Lasagna Dinner on Friday night the 14th, a Silent Auction, 6 themed bazaar tables, Saturday luncheon, pictures with Santa, Santa’s Secret Gift Shop and kids activity area.  We are looking for contributions for the following:


  • ·         SILENT AUCTION
  • ·         JEWELRY -
  • ·         BOOKS
  • ·         CHIC HOLIDAY DÉCOR Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • ·        


Please do NOT bring items (except books) to Church for storage yet.  There will not be space until later in the fall.  Look for the upcoming article in the September/October Chronicle.
