Sum-Sum-Summertime at Christ Church

The days are lazy, long and hot … at least they will be, if the weather ever cooperates. Regardless, it is a Christ Church tradition to celebrate the joys of summer with a more relaxed schedule.

Sunday services are held at 9:00 AM and 5:30 PM in the chapel. This schedule continues from June 17 through Labor Day Weekend. Reminder: the chapel is air-conditioned!

During summer, there is also an opportunity to be music director for a day. Do you have a favorite hymn you’d love to hear during the 9 AM service? You can decide while also making a contribution to support a summer accompanist with a donation in any amount you choose. (We need a total of $100 per week; if you write a check, please make it out to Christ Church and note “summer music” in the memo line.) Donors will be recognized in the weekly bulletin. Please see official Music Director Pam Goody or contact her at pamela.goody@ccneedham.org to arrange your selection and preferred summer Sunday.

Another summer delight is the substitution of the traditional coffee hour with a Lemonade Break after the 9:00 AM service, beginning June 17. If you are interested in hosting, please sign up on the ledger in the Upper Parish Hall. You can provide iced tea, lemonade, cookies or whatever refreshments you like. Please get in touch with coordinators Debby Rempis at dtr4430@gmail.com or Joanne Neale at jmneale@gmail.com to to ask questions or volunteer.

The Sanctuary Garden will be in full bloom, and that applies to weeds as well as flowers. Please consider volunteering a week or two this summer to help care for this lovely oasis. Tasks include light weeding, dead-heading and keeping walkways and benches clean. (No watering or lawn care is required.)  A sign-up sheet is posted in Upper Parish Hall. Your support is very much appreciated! Please contact Winnie West at 781-444-8739 or wawest1@verizon.net with questions.
