Announcements for 4/6/14

CHANCEL CHOIR— Time to try the choir out! Afraid to commit long-term? We are looking for  interested people to sing Lent, Palm Sunday, and Easter with us. That would mean starting choir now and continuing through Easter Sunday. It’s always great to try something new, plus our     faithful, dedicated choir members can use some back-up on occasion. We really are a fun bunch!   See you on Thursdays evenings at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary.

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, or Annelise (859)663-0608.
