Our church home is a place of affirming sanctuary, where many find hospitality and hope, even redemption and peace. Worship here is always about thanksgiving and overflowing with themes of God’s grace, God’s call to justice, and our responsibility to one another as God’s children.
We experience joy, laughter, and delight in moments of shared liturgical celebration, as we experience the awe of God’s presence among us in moments of ministry that include healing prayers, outreach, and pastoral care with the people around us. We continue to discern our ministry, as our hearts are continually tuned to sing God’s praise.
On July 10, a horrific blaze struck and demolished a large apartment building in Lowell MA. The fire claimed the lives of seven people, making it the deadliest in Massachusetts for two decades. Tragically, seventy more people were left homeless and many of those have serious injuries.
Christ Church parishioners have expressed a wish to make a direct and immediate donation to this relief work in Lowell, via the Essex County Red Cross Office. Our Mission Fund Committee is pleased to match the total collection amount so that we can better offer victims, their families and the Lowell community financial help with the huge relief, healing and relocating processes ahead.
We will be collecting money contributions at both services on July 20 and July 27. Parishioners may offer cash or checks in Lowell Fire Relief envelopes found in the pews during services or send in a donation to the CCC office. Donations of any amount are very welcome.
