Announcements week of February 16th

LOOKING FOR AN EASY BUT VITAL WAY TO SERVE CHRIST CHURCH?  Please consider being a substitute Sunday School teacher.  This commitment would be just 1-2 times a year when a teacher needs a Sunday off.  There is little to no preparation.

Contact Julie (859)760-4104 or jdascmai@zoomtown.com, or Annelise (859)663-0608.

LOCAL MISSION VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY— Brighton Center needs help sorting,            arranging, packaging, and distributing items in food pantry.  Volunteers are needed in particular   on Mondays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 799 Ann St in Newport.  Please contact Amy Thornton if you need additional information.  Thank you!

FAMILY PROMISE VOLUNTEER TRAINING—The volunteer coordinator from Family Promise   will present information about the Family Promise organization, its mission and operation, and      training for volunteers here at Christ Church on Sunday, March 2, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m.  All     regular and occasional volunteers as well as anyone who has ever considered volunteering for Family Promise should attend if at all possible.  Bring any questions or concerns you have.  We hope to see  you there.  Contact Melissa Cox if you need any information about the training session.

MISSION TRIP—A sign-up sheet is now available for the work camp and summer ministry       program at Washington UCC (WUCC), our local mission church partner in Camp Washington, Ohio, from July 27th through July 30, 2014. Participants would be day campers (return to their own homes each evening) and would assist mostly with the children’s ministry. There is no fee. Please sign the sheet in the narthex no later than March 16, 2014 so we can let WUCC know the number of volunteers to plan for that week.
