Saturday, we as a congregation, will work for the Blacksburg Interfaith Food Pantry at the South Main Kroger from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., inviting shoppers to pick particular items as they shop.
Sunday continues our efforts for the Food Pantry as we collect cereal on "Cereal Sunday." The youth and children of the parish have been collecting cereal throughout March and will present our offering at the 10:30 a.m. service.
The confirmation/reception class meeting during the forum hour will focus on theology in the Anglican tradition.
Also on Sunday at 5:15 p.m. the Prelude will begin for our Lenten Evensong. A reception will follow in the parish hall.
Lastly, please consider giving to "The Bishop's Dollar". You will find information in your bulletin.

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
