Christ Church Asked to Be a Gathering Place for Convention

Bishop DeDe has asked Christ Church to be a Gathering Place for the Diocesan convention in November. Only three other churches were asked to be a Gathering Place: Ss. Peter and John in Auburn; Zion in Rome; and Trinity in Watertown. Gathering Places will, for the near future, replace the convention being held in Syracuse each year.

Bishop Dede wished to try a "regional" approach to the convention this year as not only a cost saving to the Diocese as well as to the Churches attending, but also
to have delegates experience the benefits of smaller gatherings. The Vestry enthusiastically accepted the Bishop's request. Details of our responsibilities as a Gathering Place in future editions of Heads Up. Way to go Christ Church!

Open Position: Clerk of the Vestry

Nancy McGorry has served this church and the Vestry admirably as clerk of the Vestry. Accurate minutes and tracking of motions are important to our work. Nancy will be stepping down, and we are seeking someone as the new Clerk of the Vestry.

The main job is attending Vestry meetings and the annual meeting, keeping accurate minutes, sending these out for approval, and maintaining our Vestry notebooks. This is a volunteer position. If interested, please contact Kevin Shea or Mother Elizabeth.

Katie's Closet

We are currently looking for volunteers for a couple of hours each month to help with the clothing closet.

Thank you!

Christ Church Amazon


When you're shopping on Amazon, go to smile.amazon.com and list "Christ Church Binghamton" as your charity of choice. The Church will receive .5 % of your purchase!

Over $600 has been given to Christ Church from your Amazon purchases since its program began. THANK YOU for designating Christ Church to receive these proceeds. Every little bit helps.

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.

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.

Donations

Christ Episcopal Church remained and remains present to our congregation and the broader community in this time of pandemic. 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.
You can donate via our website at www.christepiscopalbing.com/donate/. You can now click donate to send your pledge or other special donations. You can donate specifically to CHOW, Katie's Closet, the Rector's Discretionary Fund, Organ/Bells Repair and Upkeep.

A Word From Your Senior Warden

The good ol' days-- when you can go through a whole day without taking a picture of anything.

You can't truly refer to yourself as a senior until you catch yourself getting angry when the grocery store changes its layout.

Despite the changes around us we are a Church and a community that stands together in faith despite adversity. We feel fortunate to have each other during these difficult and uncertain times.

Tour d'Horizon

Thursday Reflection reminds me of a favorite experience of 8th grade. Our English teacher gave us a standing assignment: write or speak about a subject of your choice each week. I loved standing assignment, offering my fondness for Piglet (having sewn my own stuffed toy) and my wrestling with the Vietnam war. In this space, I have …
