Latest News from Christ United Methodist Church
Thirty-three of our children from Christ Church experienced Day Camp the week of July 10. We had an awesome time experiencing faith formation as we enjoyed outdoor activities at Camp Guilrock. Our theme was “God’s Wonder-Full World." We are grateful to the counselors from our church: Sally Lewis, Lynn Long, and Cynthia Styers. Other servants include Terry Rankin (bus driver, photographer, and anything needed) and Mary Jo McGraw (who lead a fun-filled rotation). We greatly appreciate our junior counselors: Sydney Ma, Mallie Roley, and Andi Leigh Waldrop. It’s one of our favorite weeks of the summer! With appreciation, Anne Dooley and Lynn Long
We are thankful for the multitude of volunteers that made our Bible School possible! Many youth and adults worked in the Marketplace Village, kitchen, set up and break down, prep work, and anywhere needed.
We also thank these Chairpersons and Teachers:
Dear Christ Church family, words fail to express our gratitude to you all for your love, care, and support over the last 5 years. You have kept us in your prayers and embraced us so deeply in the family called “Christ Church.” For that, and so much more, we are eternally thankful. Please know how grateful we are for all of the gifts made to the Christ Church endowment, cards, emails and gifts you have sent. We’ll always treasure our time with you and anticipate with joy the new and greater achievements you’re certain to make under the leadership of Morris.
Shalom, friends, shalom,
Lauralee and Mike Bailey
P.S. Mike’s new email with the Annual Conference is firstname.lastname@example.org. The address of their new home is 2004 Middleham Drive, Kernersville, NC 27284.

Utilizing Adam Hamilton’s Creed series, we will explore what we as Christians believe and why it matters. We will discuss many of the core questions of the Christian faith, including “What do we mean when we say ‘I believe’?,” “What is the source of our belief?,” “What do Christians believe about Jesus?,” and more. Our leaders will include our Pastors.
The third and final candidate for the positions of Organist and Coordinator of Instrument Music, Director of Handbells, and Director of Children's Choirs will be visiting Christ Church Friday, July 7. Join us at 7pm in the Sanctuary for the open audition, which should last no more than 45 minutes. We would love to have a full congregation to sing cherished hymns and to enjoy wonderful music presented on the Fisk organ!
