This week’s Cliff Notes is a guest post by Brian Murphy, Executive Pastor
Dear Christ Church,
On July 1, 2012 Christ Church will launch a new church service at Sun City, a retirement community in Georgetown, Texas. The Christ Church Vestry will oversee Christ Church Sun City and will join the endeavor to ensure that no one stands alone at Sun City and the greater Georgetown area.
Services and pastoral care at Christ Church Sun City will be led by Father Steve Pope and Father Billy Disch; both are retired Anglican priests who currently serve and worship with us. Father Steve has volunteered at Christ Church as an assisting priest. In fact, he will be celebrating communion with us for the next two weeks. Father Billy was Cliff’s predecessor and retired in 2003 as the rector of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.
Both priests, along with their wives April Pope and Alice Disch, have lived in Sun City for a number of years. They have seen first hand the spiritual need of the community grow with the population. Sun City is currently home to over 7,500 families and is expected to grow to 10,000 households in the years to come.
Please take a minute to visit the Christ Church Sun City website here and learn more about this exciting new ministry. Also, pray for the final preparations for the first service on Sunday, July 1.
