OUR MISSION

To Know Christ, and to Make Christ Known

Christ Church will hold a picnic-themed summer community dinner on Wednesday, August 3, beginning at 5 p.m. The dinner will be prepared to-go with pickup outside the parish hall.

We will need volunteers in the kitchen and to help serve outside. We would appreciate donations of seasonal fruit, homemade individually wrapped dessert bars, and monetary donations to cover meal expenses. Please drop your food donations off at Christ Church on Tuesday, August 2 through Wednesday, August 3.  Please label your donations so we know they are for the Community Dinner. If you would like to volunteer for the dinner please contact the church office at 417-866-5133 or email Edith Van Hoesen at edithvanhoesen@gmail.com.
