   One parish with     two centers for worship and ministry


The parishioners in our parish are delighted to share "Our Parish Profile" as we begin the search for a new priest. We invite you to pray with us.

Almighty God, giver of every good gift: 
Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish,
that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us
for our ministries;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

   Current Outreach Projects

The Outreach Committee is seeking donations of food, clothing, cleaning supplies, hygiene, and household items for the Clarksburg Mustard Seed from now through Easter. These donations can be brought to Christ Church and left in the yellow box at the front of the church; brought to the Parish House or give Chuck Critchfield a call and he can pick them up. At St. Barnabas Chapel donations can be left in or near the wicker hamper by the front door.  Monetary donations can be made through the church by writing a check to Christ Episcopal Church with a notation on the check that it is for the Mustard Seed.

Any parishioner is welcome to take donations directly to the Mustard Seed. Donations will only be accepted at their site when they are open. Thank you to those parishioners who have continued to make regular donations to the Mustard Seed. The Mustard Seed is especially grateful for those who continue to donate milk, eggs, and other items every week.

The Backpack Ministry will continue to the end of the school year.  All are welcome to help pack backpacks on Sunday mornings following the 10:00 AM service.  If you would like to help purchase the food with donated money, or help transport the bags to the schools on Thursdays, please talk to Pam Critchfield or sign up on the sheets on the glass case in the parish house hallway.  Monetary donations for this project can be made by writing a check to Christ Episcopal Church with a notation on the check that it is for the Backpack Ministry.

Monetary donations are periodically given to the Mustard Seed.  Parishioners also make donations of household items and clothing.

One or two days a week parishioners deliver half gallon jugs of milk to the Mustard Seed.

A Recent Addition to the Memorial Garden

cross from BA.jpg

      Where this cross has been for more than 150 years is unknown, but its creation has been traced to France.  It bears the date of 1851 and the French words, Corneau Freres of Charleville.  

     The Corneau foundary, created in 1846, by the Corneau brothers, Alfred and Emile, specialized in ornamental cast iron and produced numerous artistic cemetery crosses with images of St. Peter and St. Paul at the base of the cross.  The Corneau Freres foundries became one of the leading manufacturers of art cast iron in the second half of the 19th century.

     A gift of a large, ornate, antique cross has been given  by Brenda Barnes in memory of her daughter Felicia Lynn Wine Mollohan.  It rests above the columbarium in the Christ Church Memorial Garden.
