WELCOME TO CHRIST CHURCH, RIDLEY PARK
We recognize that the future of our Church lies in meeting the needs of families seeking a supportive community while juggling increasingly complex demands in their lives. We welcome individuals of any age who want to contribute their gifts to the well-being of others.
How that plays out in practice in a world where disruptive technology and established tradition seem to frequently be at odds is unknown, but this Church community is enthusiastic about moving towards that future. Our stability as a parish offers plenty of opportunity to explore what the Church of the future might need to offer those in search of a welcoming community.
WELCOME TO REVEREND JANE GOBERChrist Church is excited to announce the call of our new Rector: the Reverend Jane Gober. For over twenty years she has nurtured congregations and dioceses across the nation, where she is an innovative church-wide leader in lifelong faith formation; and she serves currently as the Interim Rector of Grace Church in Pemberton, New Jersey. After having lived in 13 states (and West Germany) she is looking forward to deepening her roots here in Delaware County/Philly area, where she has both family and friends. A fan of baseball, reading, yoga, and craft beer, Reverend Jane is thrilled to be called to CCRP and looks forward to many years of following Jesus together. She posts some of her sermons and other faith formation ideas at her blog https://blissfulirreverence.blogspot.com/. Reverend Jane begins to serve with us the last week of October, with her first Sunday being November 3rd.
A Big thank you to the discernment Committee and Vestry for their dedication during the call process and big welcome to Reverend Jane!
