1) Paul will be at TAMIU today (Thursday, September 18th) at 6:30 p.m. for the kick-off of our campus ministry. He would love some other Christ Church folks with him. He will be taking care of the dinner part - but would be grateful for some folks to show up and meet students. He will take the first 5 people who contact him! Call or text him directly at (956)285-2753.
2) Many of you have asked how Sheila Glassford is doing. She is much improved over the last several days and hopes to be coming home soon. When we know more, we will pass that information along to everyone.
3) Some of you will remember Bill Brown and his wife Elizabeth Rhodes who are former members of Christ Church. They have lived in Alpine now for many years. Bill is dying of lung cancer and his sister-in-law Frances "Panchita" Rhodes wanted to let their friends know. If you would like to send a card, their address is: 807 West Sul Ross Street Alpine, TX 79830.

5)) The Diocese of West Texas requires all paid staff to participate in the program "Safeguarding God's Children: Preventing Child Sexual Abuse". Sunday School teachers and Youth Leaders are also encouraged to participate. We will be offering this training sometime during the Fall. If you would like to attend - or would like more information, please speak to Fr. Paul or Connie Miles and let us know a time and day that would work for you. We will try to schedule the 3 hour session at a time that works best for those attending.
