This Week at Christ Church July 21 ~ July 28 A worshiping community in New Bern and the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina since 1715

Welcome We are thankful that you have chosen Christ Church as your place of worship today. Should you desire pastoral services or notices of the church events, please complete a pew card and place it in the offering plate.

Welcome David Leahey, our new Director of Music!

For those new to Episcopal worship, it is customary for the congregation to prepare for the service in quiet and prayer. Page numbers refer to the red Book of Common Prayer. Hymns and Service Music (S) are found in the blue Hymnal 1982. PFS refers to the green Parish Family Songbook and WLP refers to the green Wonder, Love and Praise. Nursery Our nursery is available on Sundays from 9:30am until 11:30pm for children from birth to 3 years old. The nursery is located on the first floor of the education wing to the right of the reception area. Pastoral Care We encourage you to let us know when an illness, hospitalization, death, transition or joyful event occurs in your life. For ongoing care, Stephen Ministers are available to provide one-on-one confidential care-giving to individuals who have experienced a loss, crisis or difficult life transition. Clergy and Lay Eucharistic Visitors are available to bring communion if you are unable to attend church services. If you would like a visit with one of the clergy, please call one of them to make an appointment. They will be happy to visit with you. Restrooms Restrooms are through the door at the left of the chancel, on either side of the entrance way into the Parish Hall.
