RECENT NEWS

Morning Prayer During Advent: This year we will harken back to an earlier time in the church as we will incorporate the traditional Anglican service of Morning Prayer into our Sunday Eucharist worship. Except for the 10 a.m. Lessons and Carols on December 8, the service of Morning Prayer will replace the first half of the worship service during the four Sundays in Advent.

Adult Forum: During the season of Advent, the Adult Forum will watch a video series called "The Journey: Walking the Road to Bethlehem," hosted by Methodist Pastor Adam Hamilton of Leawood, Kansas. This is a follow-up to Hamilton's successful video series we held during Lent on the ministry, life, and death of Jesus. The adult forum will meet in the parish hall at 9 a.m.

Altar Flower Donations: We have openings for altar flowers on December 22 and 29. If you would like to donate flowers for any of the dates, contact the church office at 866-5133 or email frontoffice@christepiscopalchurch.com.

Safe to Sleep: There is an ongoing need for volunteers, especially going into the winter months. If you have been thinking about serving in this rewarding ministry of the Council of Churches, please come to Pathways United Methodist Church at 1232 E. Dale on Monday, November 25, at 7 p.m. Both Mary Luke and I will be there that evening, and it would be an excellent opportunity for you to see if this might be a good fit for you. Just let me know you'll be coming, or if you have questions, contact me, Jane Mellers, at 866-5133.

Toy Store: Crosslines is collecting toys for the Toy Store, and they need toys for the 14-18 year age range beginning on Sunday, December 1. You may, of course, bring any age toy but they have requested that our church try to help with this age group. There will be a big box in the hallway to place your toys. Please DO NOT wrap your toy or gift item. Leave the price tag on as that helps volunteers with sorting. They will remove the price tags after sorting into appropriate age categories. Donations of gift wrap and bows are. Additionally, if you do not have time to shop, you may make a monetary donation to the Toy Store. Please leave a check in the offering plate to Christ Church with Toy Store in the memo line. The toy drive will end on Sunday, December 15.

A Blue Christmas service, led by Father Chandler Jackson, will be held at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church on December 18 at 7 p.m. for those who may not feel joyful this time of year. St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church is located at 203 E. Brick St. in Ozark. A Blue Christmas Compline service, led by Father David Kendrick, will be held at St. John’s Episcopal Church on December 22 at 8 p.m. St. John’s Episcopal Church is located at 515 E. Division St in Springfield.

Bissett Cents of Pride: We could use your help stocking the Bissett Cents of Pride store. For a full list of suggestions and more information, please check out the church bulletin boards. If you would like to volunteer at Bissett or for more information, contact the church office at 866-5133.
