For convenience, there are several chapters which meet monthly at different times of the day. The Chi Rho News lists times of meetings. All adult churchwomen in Christ Church are members of the E.C.W., and are cordially invited to become active in a chapter of their choice.
St. Anne's Chapter -- St. Anne's Chapter is one of the Episcopal Church Women's organizations here at Christ Church. It meets once a month from October through May on the second Wednesday of the month in the Church Parlor at
9:00 a.m. We generally have a speaker, then a short business meeting. The topics are of various interests, which encourage growth in Christian living, service to the community and our parish. In the spring of each year, a fund raiser is usually held. Our membership includes a wide range of ages. We welcome all women of Christ Church. Visitors and guests are always welcome.
The Altar Guild's main objective is to prepare for the worship services of the Church as directed by the Clergy. This does not end with preparation of altars for Holy Communion, but includes the care of linens, vestments, polishing all brass, etc. Membership is divided into groups to work on a one week a month basis. Altar Guild work itself can be considered as an oblation, a loving labor offered to God, not merely a chore that someone must accomplish. Those interested in serving on the Altar Guild should contact the Rector.
The ushers of Christ Church are a dedicated group of men, women and young people who assist the priests in achieving an orderly, reverential ceremony. They assist the congregation in such a manner as will save time and avoid confusion. They assist at all regular Sunday services and such weekly and special services as requested by the Rector. Anyone interested in becoming an usher can contact the church office. New members are always welcome.
