We are in the last couple of months of our Sesquicentennial (SQC) celebration. September was chock-full of SQC events between the Picnic, the Parade, the burying of the Time Capsule, and our Banquet Luncheon and Raffle. October also has many events planned. We begin with Creation Weekend which coincides with St Francis Day October 4th. Part of our Sesquicentennial celebration is our thankfulness to God for the environment and grounds of Christ Church. We will have the annual Blessing of the Animals on Saturday October 3rd and our services will reflect the theme of Creation. Our 8-day SQC Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic is also in October. There are 12 people going including Bishop Chip Stokes and the Diocesan Chief Financial Officer, Canon Phyllis Jones. Our main focus for this mission trip is painting a clinic. We will also be taking supplies for schools and the clinic. We are asking parishioners to participate in the Mission Trip by collecting supplies. See the tags on the Giving Tree at the church. We have events also scheduled for November, with November 22nd as our finale. The actual date of our 150th anniversary is Saturday November 28, 2015. Because this is Thanksgiving weekend and the beginning of Advent, we decided to celebrate it the week previous. It has been a very exciting anniversary year. God has blessed Christ Church for 150 years. We pray for God’s continued grace and blessing as we continue to serve God through this wonderful parish.
Love and blessings, Joan+

The Church is most truly itself, the Body of Christ, when it lives and breathes mission. The heart of this body is mission – both domestic and foreign mission – in partnership with anyone who shares that passion. Indeed, our baptismal identity is grounded in commitment to mission and in the assurance that in our faithful pursuit of that mission God will bless both us and our work. ~The Most. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate
