Supplies to Cuba on their way
Thank you all who have donated supplies for Cuba. We are shipping through an agency in Miami and God willing the items will arrive to Cardenas and Havana within the month. John Potter, Christine Hodsdon and her friend Hannah did our packing this week.

Guidelines for Gathering Indoors: For Now
Though Exeter is the most vaccinated town in NH (79%) Christ Church leadership is watching rising Covid cases state-wide nationally. We encourage all those who can to get vaccinated.
Masks are optional indoors and it should be clear that masks are welcome for those who prefer them. We want to establish a culture where people are comfortable wearing masks, for any reason.
Communion from the common cup will be offered but Intinction -- dipping the wafer into the wine -- will not yet be offered. It should be understood that communion in one kind (bread/wafer only) is entirely appropriate and sufficient to experience the Real Presence of our Risen Lord. We want to foster a church culture where people are comfortable crossing their arms on their chests as the wine is distributed, for any reason.
We lift up in prayer:
This week we pray for: John, Cheryl Lee, Jen M. , Megan, Pat I. Barbara C.
