Finances at Christ Church
Pledges and plate at Christ Church have been very low in recent months, so that -- although we have continued to tighten our belt on expenses -- we have a negative budget income verses expense of nearly $20,000 for the year as of September 1.   If you have pledged and not been able to keep up on your promise, please try to catch up.  If you have pledged and plan to give a larger gift near the end of the year, please let our treasurer, Bob Amato, know that.   If you did not pledge this year, please consider giving more for the ministry of Christ at Christ Church.  If you are able, consider an extra gift.   Thank you.

Reading November 6th 10am Combined Service
Reader:  A reading from 1 John [3:1-3]
God has redeemed us by adopting us as his children. Until the day of Christ’s coming, we are to show that love to others.
Reader: Hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
People:  Open our ears to hear your Word.

What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we're called children of God! That's who we really are. But that's also why the world doesn't recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he's up to.
 2-3But friends, that's exactly who we are: children of God. And that's only the beginning. Who knows how we'll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we'll see him—and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus' life as a model for our own.

Reader: Hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church.
People:  Open our ears to hear your Word.
