Maundy Thursday

We commemorate the Lord’s “Last Supper” on the night before Jesus was betrayed and arrested. Maundy, a word derived from the Latin “mandatum” refers to the new commandment Jesus gave to his disciples, “to love one another as he loved them” (John 13:34.)

Holy Communion is celebrated as we remember Jesus’ sacrifice and the new life he gave to us.

Ash Wednesday Worship Service

7:00 PM19:00

Ash Wednesday Worship Service

Join us as we begin our Lenten Journey with the disposition of ashes. The ashes symbolize our repentance and mortality as we remember the days leading up to Christ’s suffering, crucifixion, and resurrection.

In our faith, we do not view the Lenten Journey as one of suffering and personal sacrifice by “giving up” bad habits, rather it is the opportunity to become renewed by practicing Christ’s love and developing our spiritual gifts.

6th Annual Cookie Walk to Benefit Blood and Pancreatic Cancer Research
Dec

6th Annual Cookie Walk to Benefit Blood and Pancreatic Cancer Research

Holiday cookie bakers and buyers are needed for our Sixth Annual Cookie Walk at Christ Church.

  New this year:   We are taking Pre-Orders ONLY.  There will be no walk-ins.  This allows us to plan better for the number of cookies to make.   There will be 40 cookies in a box with only 70 boxes (including plates) being sold.   (As of this article being written in October, 20 boxes have already been sold!)    There may be a limited number available for purchase on Sunday after the Cookie Walk, depending on how pre-orders go.

It's a great way to stock up on a terrific assortment of homemade holiday cookies for entertaining and gift giving.   For those who just want a taste, you can purchase a sample plate for $10.   (Plates will have 10 cookies.)    Boxes are $20 for 40 cookies.  All monies go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Johns Hopkins Pancreatic Cancer Research Center.  (Checks should be made out accordingly.) 

Amy Addams is taking box pre-orders.    Boxes will be filled for you before the doors open on Saturday, December 8, and you can pick up between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm that day.    

If you are able to bake cookies, we are looking for 20 different kinds of home-made cookies from Christ Church congregation.  Each baker is being asked to make 6 dozen of one kind of cookie.    Of course, you are welcome to make more than one kind of cookie, but - for box counts - we need 6 dozen of each kind of cookie.  (Amy is securing additional bakers outside of our church for the other 20 kinds of cookies.)

Thank you for “Giving hope one cookie at a time to those with blood and pancreatic cancers!"
