Wishing you all Happy Independence Day weekend. I hope to see as many of you as possible on Sunday!
As a reminder, our monthly service of Holy Eucharist at Showalter is scheduled for Thursday, July 9 at 10:00 a.m. All are invited. It's a wonderful time to reconnect with some of our long-time members who are no longer able to be with us on Sunday morning.
General Convention concludes this week; please keep the deputies and bishops in your prayers.
Youth of Christ Church: Mark your calendars now for our kick-off youth event for the late summer - a pontoon boat cruise on Claytor Lake on Saturday, Aug. 8. Plan to arrive at church at 7:30 a.m., and we will leave the church parking lot at 7:45 a.m. for a morning of fun at Claytor Lake. Wear your swimsuit and shoes that will not come off in the water (i.e. no flip-flops) and bring a towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a lifejacket, if you already have one. We will supply the rest! See Ann, Emily, or me for more information and a parental permission slip.
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
