Congregational Table Talks:
You are personally invited to participate in a series of congregational table talks on the future of Christ Church.These sessions are scheduled for Sunday, Nov 19, Sunday, Dec 3 and Sunday, January 7. Each session will address three different questions to challenge us to refresh and identify specific initiatives for our mission and service in this community and beyond. You will recall that last winter, Christ Church members were surveyed on the identity, mission, and needs assessment of the congregation. This was followed up in March with a community wide networking workshop.The first session will be held in the Merigold Room immediately following the Celebration Lunch next Sunday, Nov 19.So, start your thinking. One question you might consider is what are we not doing, that we could be doing, to further our mission.
To reserve your comfortable chair at the table, please contact Rick Donaldson at email@example.com or 905-822-5520 by Thursday, Nov 16.
