This Sunday begins our 2011 Every Member Canvass. Packets will be available at the back of church to be picked up every member of Christ Church. Those that have not been picked up on Sunday will be mailed on Monday, November 15th.
The theme of our canvass this year is “Knit together in one communion and fellowship”, a reference to the collect for All Saint’s Day when we remember our participation in a larger communion with all the saints and our responsibility as members of that greater fellowship. All members of Christ Church will be asked to pledge to the mission and ministry of Christ Church, filling out a card and returning it by November 28.
Our speaker this Every Member Canvass speaker this Sunday will be Amy Lovenguth, chair of Pastoral Care, a member of the choir, and former vestry member of Christ Church.
The Every Member Canvass is the means by which we determine our budget for the upcoming year and plan for our program and ministries. We invite your generous support, returning a share of your own resources for God’s work in the world. Please keep the canvass in your prayers.
