Assisting Ukraine

Should you wish to assist people in Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees, here are two opportunities to consider:

1) Episcopal Relief and Development has created a special fund and is working to get assistance in and to refugee communities. Your funds will be matched by the Diocese if you donate through them. https://cnyepiscopal.org. You can also write a check to Christ Church.

2) Sacred Heart Ukrainian Catholic Church on 230 Ukrainian Hill Road in Johnson City is sending shipments directly to Europe to assist people.

They seek brand new children's clothes, underwear, socks, medical supplies, sanitary items for women, and other personal hygiene items.

You can drop these off at Sacred Heart Church directly or bring items to Christ Church and we will take them to Sacred Heart.

The English Country Dancers will hold two dance gatherings at Christ Church on April 23rd and May 7th from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Restrictions for indoor worship services

Everyone will wear a mask when entering and exiting the sanctuary and when in line for communion. You may mask throughout the service and please return to distancing. We encourage everyone eligible for the Covid vaccine to receive it for their own safety and for the love of neighbor.

No offering plate will be passed. Gifts will be collected online or in plates placed near the Church entrance.

Parking in the Metro Center parking lot is available. Press the button and take a ticket to enter. Please leave the entry ticket in the car so that it is readily available when exiting. Ushers will provide a ticket which you will need to exit. Both tickets will be needed in order to exit.

Pledges & Donations

We thank all who have supported our work and worship and ask for your ongoing contributions that we may remain a positive presence in the lives of many and in caring for one another.

Pledges and other donations can be mailed to the church. If you do not have envelopes, we will use the name on your check.

Prayers & Prayer List

I cannot tell you how the light comes, but that it does. That it will. That it works its way into the deepest dark that enfolds you, though it may seem long ages in coming or arrive in a shape you did not foresee.

And so we pray we may turn ourselves toward the light giving thanks for Christ’s birth and this communion. May we lift our faces to let the light find us. May we bend our bodies to follow the arc it makes. May we open and open more and open still to the blessed light that comes. *

With thanks to Jan Richardson*

Prayer List

In the week ahead, please pray for comfort and healing for: Bobbie, Connor, Daniel, Don, George, Jeanette, Joell, Kathy, Mark, Osmond, Rose, Sally, Scott, Shea, Tricia.

A Word From Your Junior Warden
