CHILDREN’S SERMON   Children ages 3 years old through 5th grade are invited to attend the children’s sermon every Sunday during the 10 o’clock service.  The children follow the crucifer and teachers (after the Gospel reading) to St. Mary’s Hall for children’s sermon.   The children return during the post-sermon hymn to be with their parents for the remainder of the service.

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 10am worship service.    Then beginning July 5th fellowship will be held immediately following the 9am service each Sunday.

                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.  We thank Michael Estabrook for hosting today’s fellowship.

KIDS FOR KIDS SUMMER FOOD CAMPAIGN   Thank you to all who participated in this worthy outreach ministry in providing breakfast and lunch food items for St. Mary’s Food Cupboard in Chester.  

CHRIST CHURCH BOOK CLUB All are welcomed to come on Tuesday, 7 July at noon to discuss, “Orphan Train” by Christina Baker Kline.  Vivian, an Irish immigrant is now a 91-year-old woman with a hidden past who was on an orphan-train ride.  Molly Ayer, a seventeen-year-old troubled adolescent, leads her to seek answers to questions no one has ever thought to ask. Molly knows that a community-service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they appear. A Penobscot Indian who has spent her youth in and out of foster homes, Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past. Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.  Any questions, contact Susan Schriver at 610-544-1998.

PASTORAL CARE If you are in need of support due to illness, loss of a loved one, loss of employment or someone to pray for you or a family member or friend, a ride to church or anything that has you down, we want you to know your church family is here for you.  Father Adam, Ruth LeStourgeon, Jan Ross and the Pastoral Care team coordinate a variety of ministries under this umbrella.  If you find yourself in need, please let us know by contacting Father Adam (215-313-4511), Ruth (610-565-2065), or Jan (610-955-5398).

 

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; Joyce Glackin after the 10am Sunday service.  You can also stop by the parish office, Monday through Thursday, 8:30am to 4:30pm and purchase them from Rita Caserta. 

 

PARISH OFFICE SUMMER HOURS  Beginning June 29th through September 6th  the parish office will be open from 8:30am—2:30pm.
