Dear Parents – Below is the Sunday school schedule for the upcoming month. We can offer more Sunday school if/when we gain additional volunteers. On Sunday school mornings, children will begin in the nursery (inside the office hallway) and may also play outdoors in the rectory garden. They will return to their parents for Holy Communion. On all other mornings, children are welcome to play at the outdoor table—with parent supervision, please.

August 28th ~ Outdoor table & children's sermon
September 4th ~ SS

Christ Church members who enjoy children—If you have been at Christ Church for at least 6 months, are willing to be trained, and are able to help once/month with the children’s programming, please notify Rev. Elisabeth ASAP.

Today, Sunday, August 28... Week 4 of 6 in Neuroscience and the Fruit of the Spirit ~ The Rev. Bryan Spoon, Sundays after the 11:00 service, in person & in English.

Marks of Mission interest/commitment form ~ If you missed the Marks of Mission presentation by the vestry on July 31st, please check the Saturday, August 20th community email to view and listen to an online presentation. Then, complete a commitment form from the usher’s table, and drop it in the offering bag.

Used Book Sale (English & Spanish) September 8th-11th, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Proceeds benefit Christ Church.

Requests for English language instruction: We have recently had some requests from neighbors/community members for English classes. Do you have experience teaching English? Or would you be interested in sharing conversation & friendship with those who already have basic skills? Limited training required. This would be a ministry offering rather than a paid venture. Please notify Rev. Elisabeth if you can help.

New Casa Hogar Divina Providencia (orphanage) collection through now-September. See wish list below.

Do you wish to receive the weekly Community Weekly news bulletin from Christ Church? And/or would you like a pastoral meeting with one of the clergy? Please fill out a contact information slip from the Ushers’ table near the sanctuary doors, and indicate your need. You may also contact the parish secretary Mary Rosa (See contact info on back page).

The church sanctuary is usually open for private prayer during
the week between 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Between services on Sundays, the Lady Chapel, also known as the “Columbarium,” which is entered to the right of the altar, is available.

If you are sick at home or in the hospital, please ask someone to notify the church, and let Mary Rosa know if you would like a pastoral visit and/or if you would like your name to be included in the Prayers of the People. Please help us love you well.

If someone you love—who has been part of Christ Church—dies and you wish to share an obituary with the congregation via email and social media, please send the obituary to Mary Rosa.
