Sunday, though known across the Episcopal Church as "Low Sunday," will be "High Sunday" due to the Stewardship Committee's gift to the parish of a luncheon and dancing following the 10:30 a.m. liturgy. The band, "Old Pros Orchestra" will play, and the menu will harken back some years with old familiar favorites. Thanks to the Stewardship Committee for all their hard work! Please send in your electronic RSVP so enough food will be prepared.
With the luncheon set up, there will be no adult forum or coffee hour at 9:30 a.m. Children's Sunday school will meet. Adults are invited to the parish library for conversation at 9:30 a.m.
The youth groups will meet on Sunday for a joint project.
Don't forget to make your reservations for the Spring Fling luncheon on Wednesday, April 16th. Please contact Paula (552-2411 or email) with your reservation.
I'm am saddened to report that former parishioner Peggy Meszaros died on Tuesday, April 18 home in Hopkinsville, Ky. with her family present. Arrangements are uncertain at this point, but Peggy will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery beside her husband, Al. "Rest eternal grant to her, O Lord; and let light perpetual shine upon her."
Words of Welcome
Thank you for visiting our website. As you will discover both on this site and in person, Christ Church is a congregation rich with people, worship, and a variety of ministries.
We worship as a community every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. with the celebrations of Holy Eucharist. Everyone is welcome.
We worship at other times too, offering quarterly Evensong. Music is an integral part of our worship, as is the participation of the congregation.
Being one of only two churches still worshiping in original buildings in the Sixteen Squares that comprise historic downtown Blacksburg, Christ Church exists to serve God and people in our world with deep roots to our Anglican tradition and past, to embodying Christ's love in the present, and always striving to become more and more the people of God as the future unfolds.
We have a deep commitment to minister in the name of Christ to those in need, to those seeking God's presence in their lives, to the students, faculty, and administration at Virginia Tech, and to those who live out their Christian faith as Episcopalians.
If you find yourself pondering some of life's bigger questions, or perhaps you're looking for a place where you can engage your mind, heart, and soul while seeking a relationship with God and others, Christ Church invites you and welcomes you to become a part of this portion of the Body of Christ.The Rev. Scott A. West, Rector
