Week of October 23

Dear Friends,
Here are some things going on this week at Christ the Redeemer:
We are still doing sign-ups to take meals to the Richters.  Linda is home now, resting and comfortable, but she still has several months of recovery ahead of her.  Please keep her and Bill in your prayers.  Please go to the Take Them a Meal link below to sign up.

Stephanie and Paul Bufford are getting ready to welcome their first child into the world.  We have also set up a Take Them a Meal page.  If you would like to sign up, please go to the following link:

Join us at Lafayette Park (in front of the Virginia Zoo) on November 5th for our 2nd Annual Chili Bowl.  We will start off with a friendly game of flag football for all ages, then we’ll head to the church for our chili cook-off and contest.  The game begins at 4:00.
New Member classes have begun, but the invitation is still open.  If you are interested in deepening your relationship with Christ the Redeemer, contact Fr. Brian at Brian@ChristtheRedeemer.org for more information.  The remaining classes are scheduled as follows:
  • Wednesday, October 26, 2016  7:30-9:00 PM
  • Saturday, October 29, 2016  9 AM-Noon
  • Saturday, November 12, 2016  9 AM-Noon
*There will be two supplemental sessions on two Sundays, October 30th and November 6th from 9-9:45 AM before church.
We are collecting Thanksgiving Food Bags for GAM to help feed those who are less fortunate for the holidays. GAM have given us a list of items to include non-perishable food items as well as grocery gift cards for the purchase of turkeys and fresh vegetables.  Please see the sign-up sheet and pick up a grocery list in the Fellowship Hall.  For more info, contact Anne Reed Harper at 757-289-5181.
Soon we will begin collecting the items needed for the Christmas gift bags for Park Place School.  Please keep your eye out for an email regarding the list of needed items.  Thank you!
I look forward to worshiping with you all on Sunday.
