Christ Church is one of the organizations participating in Circle Conversations to raise awareness of Race as an issue.  Whether or not you attended the first couple of sessions you are invited.

The next meeting of the Christ Church Circle will be after Coffee Hour on
 date to be determined.  
We will continue our conversation on Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and holding 
a town-wide activity.

Rev. Jim Anderson and Helen Newton will serve as keepers of the circle and move deeper into the issue.

Please join us this Sunday, June 20th at 9:30 AM in person or on Zoom. Rev. Ed will give a sermon titled, "Appointed for a Time Such as This." We hope you can join us.

This Sunday we will have our next outdoor service on the lawn at Christ Church, 6 Dane Street, Kennebunk. The service will also be on Zoom for people unable to meet in person. We ask that anyone attending wear a mask and bring a lawn chair.
