Blue Christmas Service @ Christ Church Nave
Dec 21 @ 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Christ Church would like to invite you to a Blue Christmas Service. Blue Christmas? Yes, Christmas can be a painful time for some. It may be the first Christmas without a loved one; it may be a time that has always been difficult. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation … all these can make one feel alone in the midst of celebrating and holiday joy. An opportunity to acknowledge sadness and concern and to know that others share these feelings can offer encouragement for the days ahead.
Come and hear prayers, readings, and music that acknowledges God’s presence for those who mourn and struggle … and that God’s Word comes to shine light into the darkness. All are welcome.

Dec 6 @ 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Episcopal Campus Ministry (ECM) strives to offer deeper experiences in the faith journeys of college students through worship, fellowship, and vocational discernment. ECM is a lively place for mentoring the Christian formation of both seekers and those who grew up in Episcopal churches. At weekly ECM meetings, students are recognized, challenged, supported, inspired and engaged in honest dialogue around their faith in order to foster their potential. We provide a culture where students can imagine and explore new possibilities for ministry. These imagined possibilities are necessary for the continued vitality of the church and for God’s mission in the world. Through campus ministry, we equip students with the tools for facing the tough ethical, moral, religious, relational and ecological challenges of a complex world.

Our new and improved Vinton program for all adults will be held on the second Thursday of the month.

For those who are new or may not know, The Vinton Program has been a part of Christ Church for many years. Vinton programs feature a catered meal with a presentation on music, art, history, etc. All adults are invited to attend.

We have several ideas under consideration including the addition of adult beverages during a brief fellowship time prior to our catered meal and program. Some Vinton dates may be at a local venue, with fellowship during our catered meal and program.
