Christ Episcopal Church is an affirming and inclusive Christian community. Our members and leaders strive through love, worship and service to welcome all people just as God created them. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, our welcome knows no boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, or economic condition. We believe that God delights in the diversity of creation and so do we.
THE REV. SUSAN MILLS
Susan Mills has begun her first week as Vicar of Christ Church. One of her hopes is to call each of our members for an opportunity to introduce each other, to learn what brings us joy in our church community, and to begin discerning how we might serve one another and the greater community. Until she gets a local cell phone, Susan may call you on her own phone, so don't be surprised if you see a number beginning with area code 510.
If there are members who would like to help plan virtual Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter Day services, please contact Susan at Christ Church (360-332-4113). If she's not in the office, please be sure to leave a message.

HELP FOR HUNGRY NEIGHBORS
Please keep up your generous donations whether food or financial support. As has been reported, we are the only ones who give diapers, baby food, and formula so that type of contribution is always needed. Food donations as well as hygiene items and pet food are always in demand. If you leave donations on the back porch, that works well. Please let Mary Rebman know (360-319-8495). This is what we can do to help and heal our community.

Please send your prayer requests to Jodith Allen, prayer list steward, at email@example.com. Jodith updates our list and shares it with the prayer team for daily prayers by the prayer team.
Our faith is not just something we check in with on Sundays; our faith is how we live lives of meaning and purpose every day of the week, if we will learn to notice and respond to how God is moving.
But this awareness, like anything worthwhile, takes practice. Which is why a weekly discipleship practice of Reading, Reflecting, and Responding to scripture in the context of community is so important.
The devotions on the Faith@Home website have been written with this practice in mind. Use them with friends or family to help you deepen your experience of faith experience from Monday-Saturday.
If you normally place your pledge in the offering plate on Sundays, please consider mailing it while worship services are cancelled to 382 Boblett St., Blaine, WA 98230. You may also click on the "Donate Now" button or this link to be connected to the secure giving page on our website. Thank you!
Please note that pledges may be modified or changed, especially if you are experiencing financial hardship during the pandemic. Email Susan Thomson, our pledge secretary, if you need to make any changes.
