Christmas in july

On Christmas in July we offer our thanks to God for those who serve our community, we give charitably to those in need, and we celebrate our God in ways that are somewhat different from what usually happens in December.

  •  We say thank you. Following the service we will be delivering holiday treats to those who serve our community (police, ER, post office).
  •  We give to others: Our designated charity is ASLAN Youth Ministries Summer Day Camps. Scroll down to view our summer games/equipment wish list for the camps!
  •  We celebrate: Hear the Christmas Lessons and sing Christmas Carols.  Remember to wear red and green!
  •  We enjoy Christmas Treats and Decorations, and a special appearance by Summer Santa.

Here’s how you may help prepare for our Christmas in July celebration:

  •  Sign up in the Summer Lounge to bake cookies for those who serve our community.
  •  Support the Aslan Youth Camps by purchasing one of the outdoor games/equipment for the children; pick up a copy of our wish list at the rear of the church.
  • Sign up in the Summer Lounge to deliver cookies to a community organization.

Aslan Youth ministries Summer day camps

As part of our Christmas in July celebration we need to be generous to those in need.  This year the Outreach Committee has chosen ASLAN Youth Ministries Summer Day Camps as the recipient of our gifts. 

Following is a list of suggested games which encourage physical activity, strategy and cooperation. Gifts may be delivered to the church office beginning July 6th.

If you prefer not to shop, we can do that for you. Checks should be made out to Christ Church with ‘Christmas in July’ on the memo line. Please call the church office with any questions. Thank you!
