What a reflective Lent and Holy Week was celebrated this year ending with beautiful Easter Day services!
Follow the photos below to see how this year's rainbow theme grew each week with help of our young people at Christ Church!
Our Lenten Theme This Year...
"God Keeps His Promises"
The Old Testament reading on the First Sunday of Lent is the story of Noah, in which God made a covenant with all creation, as symbolized in the setting of His (rain)bow in the sky.
Throughout Lent, our services focused on God's covenant with us and all of creation, and our promises to God. Our children participated through Sunday School and in the services each sunday, placing their traced hands on the Altar frontal forming a rainbow.
Niagara Ecumenical Choral Festival
"Our Gift of Song"
November 2, 2014
Christ Church hosted the Niagara Ecumenical Choral Festival on November 2nd with over 100 glorious voices in the Sanctuary.
The program includes four anthems sung by the combined group as well as individual choir and bell-choir performances. Those attending were asked to bring a non-perishable food item to be donated to Sister Helen's Food Pantry in Lockport. A free will offering was also taken for Food for the Poor, an international organization based in the Caribbean and Latin America.
Following the performance, a dinner of chili, soups and desserts was shared with all fellowship.
