Information & Upcoming Events
POWERPOINT OPERATORS WANTED!
A key component of the 902 Express is the Projector and Screen that display the lyrics to the songs, sometimes show a video, and once in a while, they show nothing. This last instance is what we're trying to prevent. To that end, we are hoping there may be one or many people who would be interested in helping the 902 Express Service by Serving as "Projector-Person, or PP" (The title is flexible) - all necessary training and instruction will be provided, and even a commitment of 1 or 2 Sundays a month would be HUGE! Special thanks to Susan Nicholson for her assistance with the 902 Projecting over the summer months! If you'd like to join the ranks, please reach out to Greg McCausland, Music Director for the 902 Express (contact information below)
MUSICALLY INCLINED PEOPLE WANTED!!
The Worship Band of the 902 Express is looking a little sparse this year! We would love to bolster our team with a few more committed volunteers! We have a specific need for a drummer(s) and bassist(s), however we are always open to other instruments also! If you, or someone you know, or someone your kids know, or someone you bump in to at Starbucks has any interest in being part of the 902 Express Worship band, please reach out to Greg McCausland, by either cell phone, text or email. Cell #: 905-630-0308. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Chancel Choir welcomes new singers!
NO experience needed!
Here are some ways that Dirk, one of our choristers, believes would help you easily become part of our choir:
Why join the Church choir?
*for the love of singing. *for the enjoyment of singing in harmony
*for the life enriching choir experience of expressing poet’s thoughts in melodies
*for the benefits of learning about choral singing
We extend an open invitation of joining the “One-Minute Theory” for the Choral Classroom from 7-7.20 PM Thursday evenings, just before choir practice begins at 7:30. This program teaches the essentials of music theory without cutting into valuable rehearsal time. It is a fun time to begin to learn how to read music!
Our School Supplies Drive is contributing to the 350 backpacks. The Open Door is delivering throughout Sept. Our support has a far reaching affect on the less fortunate. Envelopes are in the pews to support Children of Hope Haiti. Dana Giguere will be working there in November. Your financial support will help maintain the many services they provide. Please donate used laptops for the Computer Lab programmes they operate - education is essential to Haiti's development. Thanks for your advice on this and for all you do to keep us on an even keel. Cheers, Barbara Lewis.
As numbers were dwindling in both the Ladies’ Marathon bridge and the Mixed Marathon bridge groups, we are creating a new group simply called Marathon Bridge. This is open to all pairs who like to play bridge in a friendly atmosphere. This is not duplicate or highly competitive! You can be a pair of women, a woman and a man or two men. Friends from outside our congregation are welcome. You must be willing to host three or four times in your home for light refreshments and 20 hands of bridge. You will also visit other homes three or four times during the course of the fall, winter and spring. Play generally begins in late October and we wind up with a luncheon or dinner in late May/early June. If you are interested, please contact:

ARREST THESE MERRY GENTLEMEN: A Christ Church Children's Christmas Musical
Sergeant Joe Sabbath is charged with keeping the peace in the sleepy little town of Bethlehem, and he likes things QUIET! When word reaches him that a band of rowdy shepherds is inbound from the fields outside of town, boisterously celebrating with wild tales of angels and such, he is determined to get to the bottom of this case! Of course, what he discovers is no simple “disturbing the peace” beef. It seems he’s stumbled upon the caper that changed the world!
