ANNOUNCEMENTS

Parish-Wide Wonderful Waffle Welcome: On September 8 we will welcome back children, youth, the choirs, and families to Christ Church. We will also formally welcome our new Director of Youth Ministry, Aubrey Smith, and our guest preacher for the day, The Rev. Dr. Bob Seany. We invite everyone to enjoy waffles with lots of different toppings. We’ll have gluten-free options and plenty of fruit. Sausage and meat-free sausage will also be served. Come and join us in celebration and a welcome for the wonderful year ahead of us at Christ Church!

Altar Flowers: We have openings for altar flower donations for September 1 and 29. If you would like to donate altar flowers on either of these dates, please contact the church office at 866-5133 or email frontoffice@christepiscopalchurch.com with your name and sentiment.

Bible Study Group: All are invited to join a Bible study from 12 to 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. This is a simple study, beginning with prayer and reading through the scriptures together. We will not have a teacher as such, but our clergy will be present frequently to participate and answer questions. Please bring a lunch and enjoy a relaxing noon-hour reading the Word of God.

Ultreya will take place at Christ Church on September 8, beginning at 3 p.m. in the parish hall. Ultreya is a gathering of Christians to encourage them in their connections to Jesus Christ and to learn of ways to bring others to Him. We will engage in small group discussions on where we are in our Christian lives and how we can improve in our understanding of our faith.

The Vinton Program will resume September 10. We will meet the second Tuesday of each month (unless noted) through May 12. A copy of our schedule is being mailed in the September edition of The Clarion. If you would like a preview of the schedule, visit our News & Announcements  page. This year, Vinton program presenters will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m., with lunch beginning after our presenters have finished. All adults are welcome!

Wednesday Night Fellowship: This year, we are introducing several fellowship opportunities on Wednesday nights. As the choirs and youth already have Wednesday nights penciled in to their calendars, it seemed like that would be a great time to add in some fun events to celebrate our parish. September’s fellowship night will be an “Our Favorite Dish” potluck on September 18 at 6 p.m. Bring your favorite family dish and enjoy an evening of fellowship.

Onesolepurpose: Christ Church will provide new tennis shoes for all children at Bissett Elementary School again this year. Christ Church has been one of the longest providers for Bissett through our adopt-a-school program. If you would like to donate, the cost for shoes is $26. Please write your check to Christ Episcopal Church with “Bissett Shoes” in the memo line. We will need volunteers on Wednesday, September 18 at 8:15 a.m. to measure for shoe sizes. We will also need volunteers on October 10 at 8:15 a.m. to distribute shoes. If you would like to volunteer, donate, or have questions contact Kathy Sheppard at (417) 861-9971 or email kathysheppard1950@gmail.com.
