Church Web Site
The church web site is now up and running.  There are a few kinks that the company hosting our site still has to work on.  Julius is aware of these problems, and will work on them once he returns from the Dominican Republic.  We regret the inconvenience this may have caused, and are thankful for your patience and understanding.
Search Committee 

Christ Church Family:


The summary of the parish survey (Church Assessment Tool) will be distributed Sunday at each of the three services.  The summary will be also available at a link on the webpage by  Monday.   A meeting is scheduled for June 30 immediately following the 10:00 service for discussion of the results and how the Vestry will use the results to shape the programs and activities of the church.  Thank you again for your participation and your prayers.


If you have questions, please contact Phyllis Holland, 242-0577.


With our sincere gratitude,

The Search Committee members: Michael Black; Allan Dear; Phyllis Holland, Chair; Jeani Synyard; Mike Tanner; Helen Tucker; Nikki Yarbrough.
