Services Held September 18, 2005

Forty five parishioners attended services, September 18, 2005.

I attended service at Christ Episcopal on 18 September 2005. Service was held on the slab where the church once stood.

Of those attending I counted about 45 present. Army Major Anthony Clark, along with his staff, were in attendance. Major Clark offered his pastoral services to any church member who may need them this week.

Rev. Sally Hardie with Golden Gates Interfaith Disaster Organization, was in attendance. She is leading a group of church volunteers. This group will assist church parishioners if anyone needs trees cut, and/or some home repairs. They have a vast store of supplies and are willing to help any Parishioner that needs immediate assistance.

The service was very touching with some of the choir members leading in songs and prayers. There were few chairs and it was extremely hot, but everyone in attendance was glad to see and greet one another.

Services were held under a tent on the church grounds this date. There were approximately 50 in attendance. Reverend Rev. Wayne Nicholson, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Chester, New York, conducted the service.
