COMMISSIONING OF THE VESTRY AND DEPUTY TO THE DIOCESAN CONVENTION
During the February 16th 10 am service, the new vestry members, and Delegates to the Diocesan Convention were commissioned.
O Eternal God, the foundation of all wisdom and the fount of all courage: Enlighten with your grace the Wardens and Vestry of this Congregation, and so rule their minds, and guide their counsels, that in all things they may seek your glory and promote the mission of your Church.
Eternal Lord God, who by the Holy Spirit presided at the council of the Apostles to guide them in all knowledge and truth: Be present with the Delegates of this Parish. In the passions of debate give them a quiet spirit, in the complexities of the issues give them clear minds, and in the moments of decision give them courageous hearts. Guide them in all things to seek only your glory and the good of your Church.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

MASS ON THE GRASS
Beginning Saturday, June 8th at 5pm, Christ Church will again be holding service outdoors each Saturday throughout the summer. Mass on the Grass is Holy Eucharist with a casual setting. Bring your own lawn chair! The music, liturgy, and dress will all be less formal than what you will find on a Sunday morning. An altar is set up at the south end of the little strip at the back of our parking lot waiting your arrival. This service is meant for all the family; bring a blanket for the kids to sit on, and a toy or two, as well. Pets welcome as well. We will provide everything else.
