Annual Giving Campaign
“I am the vine; and you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Beginning in March, our lives changed in extraordinary ways. Social distancing requirements and stay-at-home orders altered how and where we have been able to work, eat, gather, serve, and worship. This is not the first time, however, that our church has survived and then thrived through difficult times. Since Christ Church’s founding in 1825, our community has been through wars, depressions, recessions and other pandemics. While our physical buildings have been temporarily closed, our clergy, staff and parishioners have continued to step forward to assure that the vital work of our church continues. Whether we can gather for worship inside our building, in our courtyard, or online, we continue to be the body of Christ through our ministries, our witness, and our care for one another.
We cannot know what lies ahead which makes it difficult to plan in these uncertain times, but we can remain confident in the assurance of God’s abiding love and trust that He has a plan for us. As we begin this year’s Annual Giving campaign, please prayerfully consider the role faith plays in your life and your hopes for the future of Christ Church.
Blessings to you and Peace,
