"Therefore be followers of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us." (Ephesians 5:1)



Welcome to St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church!  We welcome visitors and newcomers from all walks of life and all corners of the globe.  A culturally diverse community, our members come from all over the United States as well as Africa, Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.  St. Christopher’s is a community in transition.  We are in the process of self-discovery, renewal of energy and new growth as we search for a new Vicar.  Please share a record of your visit by signing the guest book out front and joining us for refreshments after the service.


In addition to the music listed in the bulletin and found in the insert, we use the 1979 Book of Common Prayer in worship (large print editions are available; please ask the greeter for a copy).  In the Episcopal Church, all baptized persons of any age are welcome to receive Holy Communion.  To receive the bread, place your hands, palms up, in front of you, and the priest will place a communion wafer in your hands.  To receive the wine, please assist the chalice bearer in guiding the cup to your lips.  Should you wish to receive a blessing, and not communion, simply cross your arms in front of your chest.





Rt. Reb. Anne Hodges-Copple


Rector:

The Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple was elected the sixth Bishop Suffragan and the first female bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina on January 26, 2013. In her role as Bishop Suffragan, Bishop Hodges-Copple assists in leading the diocese into Galilee by focusing especially on ministry in higher education, young adult ministry, ministry among Spanish-speaking communities, the ordination process for the diaconate, companion diocese relationships with Costa Rica and Botswana, ecumenical and interfaith work and pastoral care of retired clergy and their spouses.

She and her husband, John, have three adult children.



Vision Statement:
We encourage every person to know God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, to live an active life in his body, the Church, and by the power of the Holy Spirit to take his love and his word joyfully into the world.


Prayer for Guidance:
Almighty God, in whom we trust and have our being, you know our every need. As we search for a new vicar, grant us the grace to ask what you would have us do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices. By the power of your Holy Spirit, help us to be open to your ideas and to call the person whom you have prepared to minister to St. Christopher's, that your Name may be glorified as we go forward together; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.



Prayer Chain

Prayer is the most powerful weapon we have! In the event of an emergency in your immediate family please call the first person on the list. Whether you are initiating the Prayer Chain or passing on a request if you do not receive an answer leave a message and continue calling down the list until you reach someone in person.
