All are welcome to join for tea, lemonade and fellowship on the front lawn of the church beginning Sunday, July 3rd immediately following the 9am worship service. Your help is needed to host times of fellowship and refreshments on the front lawn. It’s easy and it’s fun! We set up the tables, you provide the lemonade, iced tea and cookies/muffins and host with a smile. A sign up is posted on the bulletin board for you to let us know which Sunday you’re available to help.
PARISH OFFICE SUMMER HOURS Beginning June 20th through September 4th the parish office will be open Monday through Thursday, 8:30am—2:30pm.
RECTOR ON VACATION Father Adam will be on vacation from June 26th – July 2nd . The Rev. Michael Knight will be on call for pastoral emergencies ONLY while Fr. Adam is away and can be reached at 610-996-0657.
ALTAR FLOWERS AND ALTAR ELEMENTS You can donate the altar flowers or the altar elements to commemorate an anniversary, birthday, other special occasion, or in memory of a loved one. Just sign the sheet on the bulletin board in the hallway and write your dedication in the space provided. The donation requested for flowers is $50 and for altar elements it is $25. You can give your donation to Rita in the church office or drop it in the collection plate on any Sunday. Make checks payable to Christ Church memo: flower fund or altar elements. This makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift!
SUPERDOLLARS GIANT and ACME giftcards are available in denominations of $25, $50, and $100. Every dollar you spend adds 5 cents to Christ Church’s bottom line without you spending an extra penny! When you shop at either of these stores, use these gift cards just like cash. If you do not use the entire amount on one shopping trip, continue to use the card until the value is exhausted. Look for Jim Ross or Judy Fitzgerald after the 8am Sunday service and Joyce Glackin or Jim Ross after the 10am Sunday service. You can also stop by the parish office, Monday through Thursday, 8:30am to 2:30pm and purchase them from Rita Caserta.
Calling all Jewelry Lovers!! Your help is absolutely needed to support the jewelry table at StarFest this year!! We are asking for someone to Co-Chair the jewelry table (with me) as this is not a “one person task.” We also need volunteers to help collect and price the jewelry donations. The jewelry table at StarFest continues to be a big “draw” and a large dollar contributor to the overall success of StarFest. However, the success of the jewelry table is dependent upon you, our parish members, to volunteer and help with “behind the scenes” to pull it together! Please contact either Marylee (610-872-5116) or myself if you are willing to help us keep the jewelry table in StarFest! Thank you, Judy Fitzgerald (484-459-1503).
Rest eternal grant to her, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon her.
