DADS & GRADS SUNDAY
JUNE 17th at the 8 am & 10:30 am services!
Please join in the celebration of Father's Day as we honor the men in our lives who care for us, guide and encourage us. Regardless of the names we give them, they fill the role of "Father".
We will also recognize and congratulate all graduates (from pre-K to Grad School0 at both services.
Our grads and all men who have filled the role of being a "father figure" will receive a special blessing.
Our children will participate in the 10:30 am service by ringing the handbells!!
We will soon have a Commemorative Walk to the Bell Tower. The walk will be made of engraved bricks...it's the perfect opportunity to give thanks for your blessings. It might be someone you loved who has passed away or the birth of a grandchild or the blessing of your family. It can be whatever blessings you are thankful for.
The walk will be build later this year, but first we need to get the bricks engraved. If you would like to have a brick, please fill out an order form and return it to Christ Church with the payment. (Contact Christ Church 716-433-9229 for a form) Please complete a separate form for each brick you would like. Engraved bricks are available for $50 each. There will also be two benches available for $500 each. If you have questions or would like to reserve a bench, please contact Sue Bauer (716-7278776 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
