Chaplain at Huron Church Camp. Camp is a passion for Chris after his years at this camp where his journey to the priesthood and his devotion to God began to take root. He still managed to celebrate all but 2 of the summer services on his way back to camp. We are privileged to share this journey with Chris and, as you might imagine, our young people benefit as well.
Christ Church will be responsible for delivering Meals on Wheels from Mon. Oct. 2 until Fri. Oct 6. Sign up sheet will be posted at church. This outreach requires less than 2 hours over the lunch hour.
Please feel very welcome to come and join us in a new beginning in our air-conditioned church. We offer dynamic preaching based on the Gospels of Jesus Christ, beautiful hymns taken from both traditional and modern styles, in-church activities for the young people and a warm welcome for everyone. A time of fellowship will follow the service.
New lists are being drawn up for members to share in the tasks of making a church operate as a church home for all members. Please speak to Barb or Anya if there is an area that you would like to be involved with.
