Because they are having fun together! The Altar Guild is looking for a few new members to fill out their ranks. Here members Sue Dowling, Shirley McGahan, Gladys and Dave Roman make the pitch while posing in the sacristy after the 9:30 AM Friday healing service. Altar guild members prepare the altar, ensure we have bread, wine, and candles, that the microphones have fresh batteries, the books are set up, the silver and brass are polished and that everything is nice and tidy before and after services. As evidenced by the smiles, there is a wonderful camaraderie in the group and they would love to welcome you as a member. Junior members also welcome! (Looks good on a college resume.) If interested, please contact Shirley McGahan or call the church office. Thank you!
Many thanks to Vicki Myers, chair of our Outreach Committee, for the new bulletin board gracing the back of church. It draws to our attention all the many good works our Outreach Committee supports. It also encourages us to give generously at this time of year to the Christmas Outreach offering. An appeal will go out with the Christmas letter late next week. The Christmas Offering, along with the Easter Offering, is the main source of funding for our outreach efforts in the community.
If you would like to contribute now to our Christmas Outreach offering, please use click on the online giving form to the right side of the website. Click on “Make a donation”. When you arrive at the Christ Church secure page, look for the fund titled “Christmas Outreach Offering”. Your contribution will go to our Christmas Outreach fund and will be credited to your pledge statement.
Thank you to all the generous parishioners who brought Christmas gifts and put them under the tree at the back of church. Those pictured are just some of the gifts prayerfully awaiting distribution to their intended recipients.
Gifts will go to residents of Fair Acres Nursing Home, as well as families in the Ridley area.
Thank you to all who brought gifts – and to all who stayed after church this past week and wrapped them in Musselman Hall.
The Fair committee is looking for one or two people to take on the position of getting our information about upcoming events out to the public. Those events are: Pumpkin Patch Festival, November Christmas Fair and Spring Fling. The position is not difficult or time consuming, but it needs to be done in a timely manner – which has been a problem! We feel that if the information gets to the public earlier, attendance at these major church events will increase, which will be a positive benefit to Christ Church. Please contact Marlene Nickerson at 856-467-0153 or 610-659-3031 for additional information.
