Our mission is to create a community in which the joys and sorrows of life are honored and consecrated, so that no one walks alone at Christ Church. To learn more about our Pastoral Care offerings and how you can get involved or receive care, contact Karen Connor McGugan.

Grief Support Group to begin Jan. 11
You are invited to join us for an eight-week Grief Support Group, which will meet in the Parlor on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7 p.m., beginning Jan. 11. We will explore Kenneth Haugk’s curriculum, “Journeying through Grief,” together with scriptural references to grief, children’s books, and our own stories. The group will be co-facilitated by Anna Bess Brown, a parishioner and experienced group facilitator, and Karen Connor McGugan, our Pastoral Care Coordinator, who is also on the chaplaincy staff at UNC Rex Hospital and in the ordination process for the Priesthood. Every person’s grief journey looks different; all types of grief and ways of grieving are welcome. For more information or to register, please contact Karen (firstname.lastname@example.org; 919-834-6259).
How Do Our Prayer Lists Work?
At Christ Church, it is part of our call and privilege to pray for people who request prayer support. We keep two lists.
*The Sunday Prayer List: We pray for the people on this list at our 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 5 p.m. Sunday services, and also on our recorded service. Church members may request that they or their immediate family members with acute concerns be on this list.
*The Daily Prayer List: The Morning Prayer leaders and the Daughters of the King pray for the people on this list on a daily basis. This is a more private list. Only the clergy and the two daily prayer teams use and see it. When the list is read at public Morning Prayer services on Thursday mornings, only first names are used. Members may request that they or anyone they know be added to this list. Unless otherwise requested, we pray for these people for a period of one month.
To make a request for either prayer list, please contact Karen Connor McGugan at email@example.com.
