Christ Church Calendar
There's always something going on at Christ Church! From weekly worship opportunities to parish meetings and fellowship events, you will find them listed here. Contact the church office for more information.
UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS
On June 29th-30th will be our annual Campout at Camp Shawio. It will begin at 4 p.m. and end at 10 a.m. on Saturday. But, there will be a family fellowship BBQ and potluck following which everyone is invited to attend too, with more details to follow soon. Please click here to register for the Campout.
There will be more activities as the summer continues and I will keep you informed. If you have any questions, please contact Krista Heuett, Director of Youth Ministry, at 417-838-4149.
We will be having information meetings on June 10 and 24 after the 10:30 a.m. service for anyone who is interested in helping with Vacation Bible School or who has a youth who would like to volunteer. This year’s program requires many volunteers! I will be having additional meetings in July, leading up to VBS if you cannot attend either of these meetings. I expect them to not last more than 30 minutes.
Vacation Bible School is July 16-19, 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
This year we are doing a Harry-Potter themed VBS. We are blessed to have a Parish Hall that can easily, I think, be transformed into the Great Hall at Hogwarts. But we need the professors and Hagrid, and other “characters” to help fulfill the roles to make VBS more special for the children.
I think high school students, college students, and adults could fill these roles. (Junior high students could, if they enjoy acting, play Hermione, Harry, and Ron.)
Harry (every night)
Hermione (every night)
Ron (every night)
Professor Dumbledore (Tues, Thurs)
Hagrid (Mon, Wed, Thurs)
Mr. and Mrs. Dursley (Mon)
The Sorting Hat Voice (Tues)
Madame Hooch (Tues, Wed)
Professor Snape (Wed)
Additionally, I will need help with the craft stations (4 needed each night, ideally).
Please let me know if you or your youth would be willing to help us put on a wonderful Vacation Bible School this year. If there is a particular role you would like to play, let me know. There are no lines to memorize—just the outline of a premise that you are presenting to the children to set up the theme and activities.
Thanks so much!!! I appreciate all of you very much and I know how busy you are! So your willingness to add this to your schedule means a lot to me and I know it means a lot to the children, too!
p.s. If you have children or grandchildren who will be attending VBS, please let me know.
After each Sunday service, join us for fellowship in the Parish Hall, where coffee and donuts are available.
Thursday evening Holy Eucharist is a half-hour long, and includes a short homily and Holy Communion. On the last Thursday of the month, a healing service is included in the liturgy. Healing or Unction is a sacramental rite of the Church and is an opportunity to pray for your own healing or that of others or both and to receive anointing with the Oil of Unction.
