Announcements for 11/4/2018

† Wednesday, November 21st, at 7:00 p.m. Thanksgiving Eve service. Following the service there will be a Fireside Reception in the Memorial Room (please bring a beverage and appetizer to share). RSVP to Judy Jervis at (610) 348-5529 or if attending reception.

† Bishop Gutierrez will visit CHA on Sunday, December 9th for Confirmations, Receptions, and Reaffirmations.  If you are interested in any of those rites, or would just like to know more, talk to James+.

† Morning Prayer is offered at 8:30AM on Sunday mornings.  Morning Prayer according to the Book of Common Prayer is a beautiful and contemplative service, and a wonderful way to begin to Lord’s Day.  This does not affect 9AM choir practice or the 10AM service of Holy Eucharist.

† On every second Sunday of the month, healing prayer  will be offered immediately after communion during the 10:00 service.

Children and Youth

† Sunday School: Children Preschool – 2nd grade and 3rd – 8th grade attend Sunday classes at 10:00 a.m., the same time as the church service starts; children join their parents in the church in time for communion. Classes are held on the 1st, 3rd, & 4th Sundays of the month. On 2nd Sundays children attend church with their parents, either the 10:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist service or the 5:30 p.m. Family Worship Service. When there is a 5th Sunday, children attend church with their parents, with some of the children taking part in leading the service.

† Confirmation Class continues to be held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 5 p.m.

† Through Sunday, November 11th, the Sunday School will be collecting items to send to our troops overseas.  Items are listed on the posters that we have placed in the church hall, and a collection box is in the hallway.  Popular items include power bars, batteries, beef jerky and any candy that might be leftover from Halloween.  The Sunday School will make cards to send for the troops.  Please support our Treats for Troops drive!

† Online church calendar: Stay connected with what is happening in your church. Visit the online calendar at All events happening at the church need to be added to this calendar to avoid conflicts with the use of our facilities. Email the church office to schedule events.


† Fall Reading and Discussion: This fall, interested adults will read Ben Myers’s new book called The Apostles’ Creed: A Guide to the Ancient Catechism.  Want to deepen your understanding of the essentials of Christian faith, and how they are relevant to your life?  You need to read this excellent book! In order to include as many people as possible, James+ will facilitate several discussions about this book on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings.  But even if you cannot make it to the discussions you can still read this short, engaging, and  very readable book. Sign up in the parish hall if you want a copy and the church will make a bulk order.
