Volunteer at East Austin Studio Tour
The East Austin Studio Tour (EAST) is a free, annual, city-wide, self‑guided art event Nov. 13-14 and Nov. 20-21. EAST provides opportunities for the public to meet the artists of Austin and take in their work. Christ Church is excited to participate in EAST for the fourth year in a row; this year we will have ten artists showing their work in the Parish Hall and the courtyard. EAST offers us a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate hospitality, generosity, and our love of beauty, but we cannot do it without your help. If you are interested in serving at EAST, go here for more information and to sign up.
ABARA BORDER ENCOUNTER
Why are so many people fleeing from Central America? What are our current immigration laws, and how does someone enter the United States the legal way? Global forced migration is one of the great issues and challenges of our time. The US-Mexico Border is a microcosm of this larger social phenomenon. Join us for a three-day encounter to El Paso, TX, from Nov. 29-Dec. 1 to grapple with the realities of this problem in community.
Register here for the Border Encounter trip.
Parish Retreat Registration Open

Beginning with a meal and live music on Friday evening, the retreat is a relaxed rhythm of free time to be with friends and family, structured gatherings for learning together, and a really special time of worship on Sunday morning. Registration is now open. We are monitoring COVID-19 trends as we approach the retreat dates.
