Eggstravaganza 2020

It Wouldn’t Be Easter Without Them!

Again this year Christ Church is selling the ever-popular—and sweet!—Easter Eggs imported all the way from Pennsylvania.

Each fresh, home-made, foil-wrapped, chocolate-covered egg comes with the buyer’s choice of one of five fillings—peanut butter, coconut cream, vanilla cream, peppermint or double coconut, for only $3.00 an egg.

Parishioners will be pre-selling the eggs with delivery well in time for the Easter Bunny’s big day. Email the church–christchurchshrewsbury@verizon.net–or telephone the church office at 732-741-2220 for more information and to order.

2020 Vestry Commissioning

 

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.

Children’s Service 2019

Children’s Service

Christ Church offers two services for Christmas Eve: a Children’s Service and a later service attending mostly by adults. This year during our Children’s Service there was a special visit from St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas shared with the children how his story came to be and gave the children a reminder of his story: a gold coin (chocolate). During the service children read the lessons and rang bells to welcome the Christ child.
