This coming Saturday, Dr. Amy Dyer, professor of Christian education at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria, will be joining us from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. for an introduction and training those interested in the Episcopal Children's Curriculum. Lunch will be provided at no cost to those who attend. Since we will be using the ECC this coming year for our Sunday school program for all ages, having Dr. Dyer's presentation of the curriculum is literally going to the source. She wrote the curriculum, using a three-year cycle of themes, and it incorporates some of the elements of Godly Play. Dr. Dyer will also preach on Sunday, June 5 at both services. We seldom have the opportunity to faculty from any of our seminaries at Christ Church; I hope you will take advantage of our time with Dr. Dyer.
Also the Christ Church Men's Group will meet at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 4. All of the men of the parish are invited.
Words of Welcome
Thank you for visiting our website. As you will discover both on this site and in person, Christ Church is a congregation rich with people, worship, and a variety of ministries.
We worship as a community every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. with the celebrations of Holy Eucharist. Everyone is welcome.
We worship at other times too, offering quarterly Evensong. Music is an integral part of our worship, as is the participation of the congregation.
Being one of only two churches still worshiping in original buildings in the Sixteen Squares that comprise historic downtown Blacksburg, Christ Church exists to serve God and people in our world with deep roots to our Anglican tradition and past, to embodying Christ's love in the present, and always striving to become more and more the people of God as the future unfolds.
We have a deep commitment to minister in the name of Christ to those in need, to those seeking God's presence in their lives, to the students, faculty, and administration at Virginia Tech, and to those who live out their Christian faith as Episcopalians.
If you find yourself pondering some of life's bigger questions, or perhaps you're looking for a place where you can engage your mind, heart, and soul while seeking a relationship with God and others, Christ Church invites you and welcomes you to become a part of this portion of the Body of Christ.The Rev. Scott A. West, Rector
