Chancel Drama

Christ Church encourages congregational participation and the creative interpretation of our spirituality. One of the dynamic ways we express and nurture our faith is with our monthly Chancel Drama. The plays are dramatic, comedic, whimsical and provocative but always reflective of that Sunday's scriptural readings. Over the eight years of presentations, roughly a third of our adults and children have participated.

In chancel dramas this year we experienced the anguish of Woodrow Wilson's lost chance for world peace, the hope of Martin Luther King's dream, the plight of the women who witnessed the empty tomb, the humor that the blind see more than the sighted...among other stories.

Recently the New York Diocese recognized the Chancel Dramas at Christ Church and featured them in an Episcopal New Yorker article.

Clothing Closet

Inspired by a need from the community and a closet in need of renovation - we now have The Clothing Closet, which each month fills racks with clothes that have been hidden in the closet waiting to be sold. Each Friday we take in newly donated clothes and sort, label and hang them ready for sale at the next month's sale. We have a lot of fun folding and preparing the clothes and are getting to know our 'regulars' who come each month to look for clothes.
