CEC Annual Parish Meeting: Sunday, January 18, 2015 (following morning worship)
WELCOME TO CHRIST CHURCH!
We are a parish of members living on or near the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Charlevoix in the northwest corner of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. We are a church community in the Anglican (Episcopal) tradition, welcoming all, and serving Christ through worship, spiritual growth, and care for one another, the community, and God’s world. For almost 120 years, we have honored scripture, tradition, and reason as we seek to know and to do the will of God in our lives.
We are very excited to have a new rector, the Rev. Thomas O’Dell. Father Tom has recently retired from All Saints Episcopal Church in Omaha, Nebraska. He celebrated his first service with us on Pentecost, June 8th. On Tuesday, July 15th the Rt. Rev. Whayne Hougland, Jr., Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Michigan, joined us at Christ Church for the Service of Celebration of a New Ministry welcoming Father Tom to his new ministry in Charlevoix.
We have been very fortunate to have dedicated and excellent supply priests who assisted us by celebrating our worship services during our transition period. We thank them all for their presence in our lives.
Please come and join us for worship and fellowship. Our Sunday service begins at 10:00 a.m. with a coffee hour following the service.
We are starting a new chapter in our parish life and we would like you to be a part of it.
