Parish Luncheon on August 7th Please bring something to share and join us @ 12:15 after the 11:00 Service for lunch! And you are always welcome to invite a friend.
Sunday School We are blessed with children and youth. And while a children's sermon is a good thing, we need some help deepening the spiritual lives of our children. Please pray for at least 3 teachers and 4 teachers aides for this coming year. And please listen to see if God might be asking you to bravely step out in faith to work with the kids God has brought to us.
Guest Preacher August 7th Father James Blagg,who serves at St. John's Episcopal Church in Durant, Oklahoma will be preaching and celebrating this coming Sunday. He also happens to be Heather Thornton's dad, and Rosemary's grandfather! Please welcome the Blagg's as they worship with us.
Rummage Sale! On Saturday, August 13th we will be having a Rummage Sale here at Christ Church. Please bring your no longer needed treasures. The sale will bless both Christ Church and someone else! Bring them with you on Sunday or call 956-723-5714 or 956-285-2753 (Fr. Paul) to make sure someone is here to help you unload. If you need help getting something picked up call for that as well.
Finances... Our financial situation is improving. We projected a deficit of about $30,000 by the end of June, but have made up ground. We are still a bit over $10,000 in expenses over income, but steadily gaining ground. God willing, with our fund raising and your hard work and generosity we will catch up by years end. Jim Moore our Treasurer, and our vestry have worked very hard on our behalf. "Almighty God, whose loving hand hath given us all that we possess: Grant us grace that we may honor thee with our substance, and, remembering the account which we must one day give, may be faithful stewards of thy bounty, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." Book of Common Prayer, pg 827
