Summer Session Workshops Going Strong
Please Note Change: Masks Strongly Recommended Indoors
Because New Hampshire (and Rockingham County) has entered the "substantial spread" category of Covid-19 infection, we are encouraging a change in our "Masks Optional but Welcomed" policy to that of "Masks Strongly Recommended" for those worshipping indoors on Sunday mornings and using our buildings. As a community called to love one another as Christ loves us, wearing masks indoors is a proven way to reduce the spread of Covid-19, even for the vaccinated, especially the highly contagious Delta variant spreading. The following two websites are very helpful.
We encourage all those who can to get vaccinated.
Elizabeth Sharp turns 101 on Aug. 22
We give thanks for our own Betty Sharp, a resident of RiverWoods, who turns 101 years young and old on August 22. Her daughter Laura recently thanked the church for the altar flowers that were delivered some weeks back to her room. May God bless her.
Remembering Amory Kezar
A Celebration of Life of Amory Kezar, son of Lucy and Randy will take place this Saturday, August 14 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow in the Parish Hall. Amory died on December 24, 2019.
Rest eternal grant to him, O Lord; And let light perpetual shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Choir is Coming Back to Christ Church
Start warming up your voices! The Christ Church Choir will resume rehearsals and regular Sunday services this fall, beginning on September 12 for our Kickoff Sunday.
We will offer two rehearsal times: Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 pm, and Sundays from 11:15-12:30. The choir sings at the 10:00 am service most Sundays between Labor Day and Memorial Day, with special offerings on Christmas Eve and Good Friday. We will provide singers’ masks for the safety of all. Music reading is not required, but singing experience is helpful. Email Director of Music, Maggie O’Neill at email@example.com with inquiries. Join us!

The Ministry of Making Coffee
We are looking for some folks to form teams to make coffee to serve after our 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. services this year. Realizing that we do not know where and how Covid will impact our activities, we still wanted to plan for gathering. So if you would like to learn your way around our church kitchen and our commercial coffee maker, do reach out to Mark on his cell (860) 490-8544 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We lift up in prayer:
This week we pray for: Alice, Pat, Barbara, Maureen and Lee.
To add a name to our ongoing prayer list, please send it to Darla Watt in the office (email@example.com)
We are grateful for the continued generosity and support of God's mission in and through Christ Church! You can continue to mail in your giving envelopes or give online.
