The Parish Office maintains a prayer list of names for the intercessor during the Prayers of the People. You may put the name of a person who is sick or who has passed away. You may also put the name of a person for clarity on making a decision or in need of support. If you would like to include someone's name, please contact the office by telephone or email with the person's first name. Their name will stay on the list for one month, unless specified differently.
Christ Church is a family church! We embrace and celebrate those rites that are central to family life. Are you planning a wedding or baptism for your child or yourself? Perhaps you need to know more about
communion or confirmation?
We can help you.

The Rector or a trained lay minister is available to visit you in the hospital or at home. Please email or call the church office if you would like to meet with the Rector privately.
In addition to clergy participation in the liturgy, we also have a large group of lay-people who regularly assist at the Eucharist. This includes lectors, intercessors, lay-Eucharistic ministers, acolytes, choristers and members of the altar guild. Young people in junior and senior high school are also encouraged to participate as lectors and intercessors.
Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Psalm 29:2

Creating a Prayer Space at Home
This season of Lent is a perfect time to either re-create your prayer spaces, create them for the first time, or add to them. When we create a prayer space at home, when we go out of our way to make a space that is solely dedicated to prayer in our house, we intentionally set apart our prayer life as “other.” By setting apart a space for prayer we ensure that we are reminded of God’s presence in our lives and, especially, in our homes.
For example, a crucifix and candle to remind you to pray to Jesus and give thanks for his life, death, and resurrection. A small squishy ball that is designed to look like the earth, or some rocks from your garden, to remind you to give thanks to God for all creation and this world in which we live. A picture of your family and friends to give thanks for their love and support. A picture of Christ Church to give thanks for your parish and your parish family. And, maybe a small post-it with a word or phrase that encapsulates something for which you’d like some support and aid from God. You can add as much or as little to your prayer spaces as you need or want. Say all those prayers and then close with the Lord’s Prayer.
I’d like to ask that you send us some pictures of your Lenten prayer spaces after you create them and maybe while you’re using them. This way we can all see what unique and beautiful ways we are all engaging our faith at home.
