LAY LIFE AND MISSION
At Christ Church we believe that we are called to serve others. Serving the Lord and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ can seem like an overwhelming task-but our Mission team finds faith and trust in the direction and strength of the Holy Spirit.
Lay Life’s Mission for November is Operation Reindeer. Operation Reindeer is Mental Health of America’s annual drive to provide gifts for Westmoreland County residents at Torrance State Hospital. A box and list of items to be collected are located in the Chapel. Please bring unwrapped items to the Church by November 24th. Thank you in advance!
