Church Leaps into Leaf Season

With the invigorating crispness of autumn in the air, Christ Church Needham returns to its regular weekly cycle of activities as the 8:15 AM, 10:00 AM and 5:30 PM Sunday services resume on September 8. The Reverend Nicholas Morris-Kliment will deliver the sermon.

The regular music program resumes simultaneously under the direction of Music Director Pamela Goody. The first adult choir practice is slated for 7-9 PM, Thursday, September 5, in preparation for a full program of hymns and anthems at the 10 AM service on September 8. Everyone is welcome to sing in our choir–no auditions are required. Lift your voice in a relaxed, fun-filled atmosphere.

Youth Choir reconvenes on Monday, September 16. Rehearsals are 4-5 PM Mondays in the chapel. Children and youth in 4th grade and up are welcome to participate in this fun and formational addition to our worship life. For information, please contact Youth Choir Director Lea Peterson at

Bible Study, led by Tracy Rubin, resumes Wednesday, September 18, with morning (10am-noon) and evening (7-8:30pm) class options. The focus will be on the Gospel of Matthew, in part an early immigration narrative that recounts Jesus and his family fleeing from Herod. Matthew also has much material about the role of women, demonstrated by their presence at the crucifixion, the first at the empty tomb, and the first to meet the resurrected Christ.

The Men’s Group kicks off the fall season September 20-22 with a splash and a whirr as members reel in a weekend of fishing, fellowship and prayer on their annual trip to Cuttyhunk Island (see related item below).

The church office resumes its regular schedule on Tuesday, September 3. The office is open Monday-Friday, 9 AM-2 PM.

Christ Church invites you to experience our community dedicated to loving God and our neighbors. Our communion table is open to all.
