Hodgepodge Friday

Rev. Cliff WarnerCliffNotes

Dear Christ Church,

Please welcome Bryson Owen to our staff! I introduced him and his family here in CliffNotes last month (go back and check it out if you missed it). He just finished his first week on the job as Director of Operations. We are so thankful for the gifts and heart and skills he brings to us. You’ll be meeting him, working with him, and hearing from him in the weeks to come, starting this Sunday. Welcome to the team, Bryson!

Last Sunday was such a beautiful day of worship, prayer, and investment in God’s purposes for Christ Church. I am moved by the memory of everyone bringing to the altar photos of the Medina St. property, with wholehearted prayers and visions inscribed on the back, and with new pledges to finalize our budget!

This Sunday we will have a Property Update at 10am to recap last Sunday and the summer progress, as well as look ahead to the fall. Please come early or stay late to attend both worship and the meeting.

I would also like to invite your prayer for our staff as we go on retreat for a couple of days next week. Please pray that the Lord would (1) continue to build community in our first retreat since our send-off of Brian Murphy and our new additions of Drew Smith and Bryson Owen; (2) continue to form us as devoted disciples; and (3) provide creativity, energy, and direction for the coming year of service so that No One Stands Alone . . . that everyone we know, in Christ Church and beyond, would stand in the company of Christ and his people.

Lastly, don’t forget that on August 28th we will meet for both Sunday services at 112 Medina St. for our Fall Kick-Off. You won’t want to miss it.
