“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.”
– Acts 2:42
As members of a Christian Community we know how important it is to join together and learn more about each other with fellowship. In 2015, St. Christopher’s Fellowship Committee was created, following the disciples example by combining the Activity and Hospitality Committees. The Fellowship Committee is responsible for the planning and hosting of social activities throughout the year. Committee members meet monthly with an ongoing check to evaluate past offerings and plan for future events. Each event has a point person who is responsible for organizing and implementing the action plan. The committee works together in this important and engaging ministry.
In 2017, the Fellowship Committee has hosted the following events:
- Christmas Tree Burn and Chili Night
- Boy Scout Sunday and Pancake Breakfast
- Annual Meeting Luncheon
- Winter Bowling Party
- Lenten Wednesday Night Suppers
- Lenten Evensong Reception
- Reading of the Gospel of Mark
- Master’s Watch Party
- Azalea Day Kickoff Potluck
- Azalea Day Welcome Table
- Azalea Day Volunteer Thank You Party
- Men’s Poker Night
- Boy Scout Labyrinth Workday
- Feast of St. Christopher’s Reception
- St. James Service and Barbeque
- Fall Picnic
- Blessing of the Animals and New Labyrinth
- Kitchen Clean Out
- First Thursday’s at Saxby’s
- Ladies Night Out
St. Christopher’s Fellowship Committee welcomes parishioners interested in helping to cultivate a strong, inclusive and fun experience for all through the Church’s fellowship program. Whether you want to be on the committee, or just lend a hand for a particular event, please contact Linda McConnell.
Held after services every Sunday, coffee hour is the perfect time and place to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.
Recently established, there is newcomer’s classes taught by the Rector to help welcome people to both the faith and the community.
Newcomers Coffee Hour
Done annually, the Coffee Hour for Newcomers is held to welcome newcomers and curious visitors to our faith community.
Letters and Notes
Not only do we send notes and letters to members on the dates of imporant events (birthday or wedding/ baptism/ confirmation anniversary), we also write notes to new members or visitors, welcoming them to our parish family.
In addition to lovely handwritten notes we also provide new members with welcome packages.
Flowers and Cards
Altar flowers and cards are delivered to those who were unable to join us for worship.
