Christ Church Outreach
We are approaching our BIG Christmas Outreach and we will be distributing the food, personal care items, clothing and gifts on Sunday, December 15th. Preparation of the bags and sorting will take place Thursday December 12th through Saturday December 14th. If you are able to help, please contact the church office!! November collection item is Peanut butter and jelly!! All items can be placed in the baskets in the Cloister!! Thank you!!!!
LOCKPORT CARES - Meal donations are needed...sign the list on the bulletin board by the kitchen!!!
On Saturday afternoons, Bill Bisher and Cambridge Urtel lead a group of kids from the Lockport Community Summer Program. The kids range in age from four to sixteen. These kids asked if there was some way they could continue to meet with their friends and the adults who coached the summer programs once school started again. Bill and Cambridge assembled additional adults to help supervise and submitted their plan to the Vestry. Now the kids meet for outdoor sports and indoor games and all kids are welcome. There are snacks and always the adults are there for the kids to supervise and encourage.
Lockport kids don't often have an advantage like this, so let's support our kids and be thankful they are making a connection with Christ Church, even if it isn't on Sunday mornings. At some time in the future they may need a church and they will know we are here and ready to welcome them!!
On Saturday, November 9th, Christ Church will host a Turkey Dinner and Veterans Appreciation at 4:30 pm. Bring a dish to share and sign up in the Parish Hall!! Yum!!!!
Work is still going forward on the Commemorative Walk to the Bell Tower. The walk is 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.
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.
