Week of May 24: The Day of Pentecost

Here are a few things to know about what is happening in and around Christ the Redeemer this week:

  • First, Park Place School has their end of year Talent Show this evening. The event takes place at New Life Providence Church (1420 Colonial Ave., Norfolk near Harris Teeter) beginning at 6:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.

  • Second, this Sunday we get to celebrate Pentecost and the amazing gift of the Spirit. ‘Red’ is the color for the day and we are all encouraged to wear something red this Sunday and come ready to worship.

  • Third, Our Mbyo School Project Luncheon last weekend raised nearly $7,000 in gifts and/or pledges towards the cost of building additional rooms onto our sister parish’s local school. We are grateful for this outpouring of support and ask God’s blessing upon the gifts, the givers and those who will benefit from the funds. The Missions group and the Leadership Council are encouraging all who are associated with Christ the Redeemer to prayerfully consider what God would have them contribute to the project. Pledge cards will be available in the bulletins for the next few weeks. As our Membership Covenant states, we believe God asks us to give ‘prayerfully, sacrificially, proportionately and joyfully’.

Looking forward to worshiping with you all on Sunday.
