To all members and friends of Christ Church

Friends we have A LOT going on at Christ Church as we move into fall. Please take a moment to read the schedule below.

We also have finalized our Vision Statement. For a vision statement to be effective we all have to use it when asked ‘tell me about Christ Church.’ It will be printed on the bulletin this week but here it is for your information:

Christ Church Lucketts, Virginia

As followers of Jesus we are guided by asking:
“What Would Jesus Do?”

We are active members of the Episcopal Church’s Jesus Movement–
following Him into a loving, life-giving relationship with God, with each other, and the world.

At Christ Church
We don’t care who you love—as long as you love;
We don’t care who you voted for—as long as you love;
We don’t care where you are on your spiritual journey—as long as you love and seek to follow Jesus
welcome home!

Please make a point of familiarizing yourself with these words. We believe this will make CCL attractive to new folks.

Speaking of new folks: have you invited someone to church lately?? Huh, have ya’?


On Saturday morning September 29th starting at 10am the diocese will provide trainers for anyone who wishes to take the required Child Sexual Misconduct Training. This is mandatory for all adults working with kids in Sunday School or Youth Group so please make sure to mark your calendar. This training is two hours and will be followed by a Sunday School meeting immediately after. This is IMPORTANT for our young people so please make a point of attending both the training and the meeting.

September 30th–we are still looking for a good service project for the whole parish on this the ‘fifth Sunday of the month.’ If you have an idea call Kurt. Our day will start with short Morning Prayer followed by service.

The following Sunday, October 7th, we will have a Blessing of the Animals at 9:30. There are flyers in the back of the church. PLEASE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR POSTING OR DISTRIBUTING SOME OF THESE FLYERS. This is an ideal way for us to expose new people to Christ Church. Let’s make sure we fill up the tent (thanks Christine McFall for the tent!) with animals of every shape and size.

Also on Sunday evening October 7th we will have an organizational meeting for parents and young people for Youth Group. The meeting will be at Village Green clubhouse at 6pm. Much more information to come.

It is time to plan and staff the fall sessions of PEP. The schedule hopefully is the same — dinner should be ready for the attendees by 5:30 in the cafeteria and then our 2 person crew helps to clean up and then play and learn with the kids from 6 to 8 o’clock. We get the potential number of attendees the day before and share it with the hosts for meal planning purposes.

More information for signing up to come. Here is the schedule. Can you host one evening?
