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 Pat Rizzo & Doug Sisk for hosting today’s fellowship.
BOOK CLUB On Tuesday, 5 August the book club will gather in the Van Roden room to discuss the historical novel, “The White Princess” by Philipa Gregory. In 1485; the Wars of the Roses has ended, but the victorious Henry VII sits insecurely on his throne. When Henry defeats Richard III, princess Elizabeth of York must marry the man who killed Richard, her love, in battle to create a new royal family with Henry and his ambitious mother, Margaret Beaufort, the Red Queen. The new king fears that somewhere a prince waits to reclaim the throne for York. When a young man who claims to be king invades England, will Elizabeth recognize him as her brother...or deny him in favor of the husband she has come to love? Questions, contact Susan Schriver, 610-544-1998
ECS FILL THE BUS CAMPAIGN Once again Christ Church is participating in Episcopal Community Services “Fill the Bus” Campaign. This campaign ensures that the children ECS cares for will have a brand new backpack with supplies to start the new school year in September. We have been asked to donate 25 backpacks filled with Middle & High School supplies. We have posted the list of supplies needed as well as a sign up sheet on the bulletin board for you to let us know of your willingness to participate in this worthy outreach ministry. All filled backpacks MUST be returned to the stage in St. Joseph’s Hall by Monday, August 4th so that we can deliver them to ECS in time for distribution.
