SOAPer Bowl of Caring 2018

Posted by Meredith, January 18, 2018

The youth of Christ Church will participate in the SOAPer Bowl of Caring by collecting full-size toiletries for the Lazarus Ministry. Last year, hundreds of items were collected, an important supplement to the food provided to guests of the Lazarus Food Pantry. Consider full-size toiletries: toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, warm socks, or Chapstick (consider someone living outside this time of year). Also, feminine hygiene products: unscented pads will be almost universally used, not tampons.

Posted by Meredith, January 12, 2018

With the change in our fiscal year end to December 31, the Vestry consolidated the Fall and Spring parish meetings into one Annual Meeting. This change will align the Annual Meeting more closely with the close of our fiscal year and the adoption of the operating budget.  Our 2018 annual meeting will be held on February 4. There will be a 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. worship service schedule, with an additional service of Morning Prayer at 8:00 a.m. The Annual Meeting will take place in the church after the 9:00 a.m. service. During the meeting, children are invited to the Fowler House.

A Testament of Hope

Posted by Meredith, January 2, 2018

The line of progress is never straight. For a period, a movement may follow a straight line then it encounters obstacles and the path bends. It is like curving around a mountain when you are approaching a city. Often it feels as though you were moving backward, and you lose sight of your goal; but in fact, you are moving ahead, and soon you will see the city again, closer by. – excerpt from Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? 1967
