Words of Welcome  Spring Fling Luncheon  Yard Sale for Outreach

Rector's Notes


This coming Sunday, April 19 is a rather ordinary Sunday in the life of Christ Church: services at 8:30 and 10:30 with Sunday school and adult forum between the two liturgies.

Don't forget to make your reservations for the Spring Fling Luncheon to be held from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22 in the parish hall.

In terms of the continued refurbishment of the church interior, we expect the delivery of the aisle runner early next week. Hopefully it will be installed before Sunday, April 26. A few more details need to be tended, and the project will be virtually complete except for the organ.

Also remember that pub theology meets at 6:30 p.m. at the London Underground Pub on Monday, April 20.

Spring Fling Luncheon

Spring Fling Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, April 22 - Administrative Professionals' Day - at 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. With a donation of $8 per person.

Come and enjoy a delicious homemade salad luncheon made by members of Christ Church. The proceeds from this luncheon go to the Episcopal Boys' Home in Covington, needs in the church nursery, and hospitality.

Invite your Book Club, Bridge Club, old friends, new friends, and fellow workers to celebrate spring. Reservations can be made by calling the church office at 552-2411. Please give the number at your table and the time you would like your reservation. This information can be given to Paula or left on the answering machine.


Yard Sale for Outreach

The May 9th Yard Sale for Outreach (Saturday 8 am to noon) preparations will begin on Sunday, May 3th! 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.

ALL proceeds go to Local and Global Outreach. The list of charities are listed on our Outreach Page. To help us spread the word, please "Like" us on Facebook - Christ Church Yard Sale for Outreach.

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
