Stewardship 2018: Celebrate, Create, Give
The Every Member Canvas for 2018 is now underway. A stewardship brochure along with a pledge card has been mailed to all parish households. Pledges may also be submitted through the online pledge form. Pledges and gifts generated by the Every Member Canvas provide over 70% of the operating funds needed to maintain the many and varied ministries of Christ Church. The goal for 2018 is $1,400,000. As of December 4, the Parish Office had received 217 pledges or gifts amounting to $881,620. The 100 increases averaging nearly 22% are especially heartening. Thank you for your support of this special community of faith.

Advent Quiet Morning
The next Quiet Morning, entitled Why Advent?, will take place on Saturday, December 16, 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. It will be led by the Reverend Susan Thon, retired Rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda. Join us for this brief time of stillness and spaciousness as we await the coming of Christ - the fulfillment of God’s purpose of justice, mercy, and peace for all beings.

A Service of Lessons & Carols for Christmas
Modeled after the famed service held each year at King's College, Cambridge, this festive candlelit liturgy, sung by the Choir of Christ Church, will feature choral works by Benjamin Britten, Morten Lauridsen, William Mathias, Boris Ord, Stanford Scriven, Will Todd, and David Willcocks, as well as an assortment of beloved congregational carols. Nursery care for children ages three years old and younger will be available. This year, the service will be followed by a festive reception in Keith Hall.  Please plan to join us - and invite your family, friends, and neighbors!

A Christmas Pageant
Christ Church, Georgetown, will hold its first Christmas Pageant in recent memory on Friday, December 22, at 6:00 p.m., in the Church.
