This Week at Christ Church

Vespers: join us on the first Sunday of each month at 5:30 for a quiet service of prayer and contemplation. 

In case you missed it: Our worship on Epiphany included three kings (Mark Darlington, Eric Stones, Alex Darlington) and a camel driver (Carol Tolonen) hamming it up with reverence and good cheer.

Christus Mansionem Benedicat: On Epiphany, in a German tradition dating back to the middle ages, clergy would bless chalk to be used to adorn the thresholds of members of the parish community. It makes a lovely reminder of Christ's presence in your life and journeys as you enter and exit your home. If you did not get your chalk or instructions, please see Alon+

Looking for a Mid-Week Respite: Join us for a quiet service of Holy Eucharist with anointing for healing on Wednesdays at 5:30 pm.

Our altar flowers: You can offer flowers in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a person or event for a suggested donation of $60. A sign-up calendar and donation envelopes are located near the parish hall side entry to the sanctuary. Following the 10 am service, flowers are delivered to members of the congregation. To help with deliveries, contact:

A Prayer from our Discernment Committee: Almighty God, you know the needs of your Church in every place: look graciously upon us, the people of Christ Church Redding, and grant us the guidance of your Holy Spirit as we seek a new Rector for this parish.
Give us discernment, wisdom, and confidence in your timing.
Guide the members of our committee, as they labor to be faithful in seeking your will.
We pray for the life of our parish, that we may continue to be strengthened in our mission to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith.
Bless us with mutual trust and respect, courage, and foresight as you shepherd our community through its journey.
Grace us with continuous direction and inspire us toward genuine self-reflection.
All this we ask as we walk in your ways to the glory of your name. Amen.
