New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Sign up for a New Beginnings Kickoff Session Oct. 4th or 11th
Sign up for House Gatherings after the kickoff

Christ Church has begun a journey to answer the question “What is God calling our congregation to do and be in this time and this place?” Through the New Beginnings assessment service, offered by the United Church of Christ, we are taking a close look at the church’s history, our surrounding community, our strengths and weaknesses, and where we go from here as a congregation.

Members of the church have received training to lead small-group discussions around these topics. We’re excited to get started and hope everyone will participate!

You’re invited to attend one of two kickoff sessions (they are both the same) to learn more about New Beginnings and to start down the path of dreaming about our future together. Please sign up for either the Oct. 4 or Oct. 11 session. Those are both on Sunday, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. A light supper and child care will be provided.

The kickoff will be followed by a series of small group discussions called House Gatherings that will take place at members’ homes and the church. We ask that you sign up for one of the following pairs of sessions. (Meaning you will attend both sessions at the location you choose):

Hosted by Beth Lutz in church parlor: 8:30-10:30 a.m., Sat 10/17 and Sat 10/24.

Home of Marcia Hosea: 1:30-3:30 p.m. Fri 10/23 and Fri 10/30.

Home of Jane Petracco: 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tues 10/20 and Tues 10/27.

Home of Bonnie and Bill Hitch: 2-4 p.m. Mon 10/19 and Mon 10/26.

One long session at church’s Hoffman Hall, if you can’t attend the house gatherings: 8 a.m.-noon Sat 10/31.

Stay tuned for more information and opportunities to be involved as we work together towards a new vision for Christ Church!
