Friday Night Sunday School (FNSS)
Also know as adult bible study. Two Fridays a month - September 2014 through May 2015
Friday, Sept. 5 we begin with our kickoff potluck cookout. Lessons will begin Sept. 19 & Sept. 26, 2014. The full program schedule will be released in the next upcoming weeks. All are welcome, please bring your family and friends!
Each session includes a group potluck meal, prayer, fun lessons, and crafts. We are reaching
out to the greater community to afford those who don't attend Christ Church services an opportunity to move deeper in their faith and make a difference in our world. There is no fee for this program. Parents have the option of dropping off their child or staying for the evening, when the adults also gather in a comfortable setting to discuss and interpret the lessons and verses among themselves. The goal is to have this be a program of fellowship, Christian formation and renewal for our families. Contact the office @ 301-884-3451 if you have questions.

Website Migration Development
The team is getting together to revamp the Christ Church web site! We have been having some technical difficulties with the Christ Church web site. Some elements are resisting updating — like the e-weekly spot — and we think the presentation could be better and easier to navigate.
Because the web site is our electronic "front door," the vestry has authorized an upgrade to be directed by Bill Dollins. Bill will involve some of Christ Church's tech-savvy high schoolers to assist with transferring content from the current site to the new web environment. They'll benefit from learning the new software that will be employed and will be able to satisfy their community service requirements at the same time. We expect that updating the site will soon be easier and faster. We'll keep you posted as the improvements are made.
To make a donation towards altar flowers as a memorial or in celebration of a birthday, anniversary, etc., please submit to the office, and dedications will be listed in the Sunday bulletin. On the memo line of your check, please include your flower dedication. You may drop it in Sunday's offering plate, by the office during business hours, or mail it to P.O. Box 8, Chaptico, MD 20621.
