This coming Sunday we will again have Morning Prayer as ante-Communion, with Rite II at 8:30 and Rite I at 10:30 a.m. Since our theme for adult forum for January and February is INvolve, this Sunday's forum will focus on involvement in the life of Christ Church. This will be a fine opportunity for you to learn more about all the various ministries, activities, and contact people for each, as well as how you can participate. At 5:00 p.m. our younger youth will gather for "Hello Happen"; it's the first youth group meeting of the new year.
Also as reminder, the January parish newsletter, "The Compass" is available for you to pick in the bell tower, if you'd like a hard copy in addition to the electronic version. Each month
copies of the current month's newsletter will be available in printed form in the bell tower.
Lastly, there are some gaps for altar flowers/arrangements in the upcoming months. If you're so inclined to place flowers on the altar in memory or honor of someone, please be in touch with Mary Degges, who maintains the flower calendar. Certainly if more folks desire a particular date, sharing is a possible.
Youth@Convention registration is live at Southwest Virginia Dioceses Link
This weekend event is for youth in grades 5-12 from across Southwestern Virginia. We will have music from Live Hymnal as we explore the theme "Unwritten".
The event will take place from January 27-29 at St. John's Church in Roanoke, Virginia.
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
