|Words of Welcome Yard & Estate Sale
This Saturday is our bi-annual Yard Sale and Estate Sale opening at 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.
On Sunday we welcome back our VT students, and Canterbury Fellowship and the Campus Ministry Committee will host a brunch for students, faculty, and staff following the 10:30 a.m. liturgy.
Canterbury Fellowship begins its meetings for the semester on Wednesday, August 24 at 5:30 p.m. As in years past, a home-cooked meal is always appreciated by the students. If you're interested in providing a meal for Canterbury Fellowship, there is a sign-up sheet posted on the Canterbury Fellowship bulletin board in the commons.
Remember it's not too late to express your interest in attending the "Joining God in the Neighborhood" meeting on Sat., Aug. 27. Speak with me if you're curious and/or plan to attend.
Yard & Estate Sale for Outreach
The August 20th Yard Sale for Outreach (Saturday 8 am to noon) preparations will begin on Sunday, August 14th! Hope you will spread the word to encourage friends to attend and to donate their treasures. We accept donations daily from Sunday to Friday, from 9 am to 6 pm.
We will feature a Special Estate Sale instead of the usual Silent Sealed-bid Auction. So arrive early, the priced-to-sell items will fly out the door. The beloved auction will return with the May 20, 2017 Yard Sale.
ALL proceeds go to Outreach. The list of charities we help support are listed on our Outreach Page.
To help us spread the word, please "Like" us on Facebook Christ Church Yard Sale for Outreach. We will post photos on Instagram - christepiscopalblacksburg
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. BUT, please note that in July we will worship at 9:30 a.m. for one service for all.
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
