What's Happening

Christ Church Deer Park


THANK YOU, ANDREA!

The wardens, staff, Parish Selection Committee and people of Christ Church Deer Park congratulate Andrea on her recent appointment as Incumbent of St. Timothy's, Agincourt. But, it is with a heavy heart that we bid her farewell, as her considerable gifts as a parish priest shall be deeply missed.

Andrea is answering what she has discerned to be a call from God and the Church to serve in a new place, and we wish her and Ben and David every blessing, happiness, and success in this new ministry. We will always be thankful for the time she has spent with us and the caring and loving way she has treated everyone at CCDP. We have been most fortunate to have had her in our midst.

Our search process continues on schedule as planned. The CCDP parish profile will be posted at the end of May and will be open for applications during the month of June. Interviews are scheduled to be conducted, as planned, over the summer with the intention of having a new rector announced in the fall of this year.

The Parish Selection Committee is confident that based on our work, together with the Bishop, and the attractiveness of the opportunity at CCDP as described in the parish profile that there are strong candidates who will apply for the position.

And finally, we continue to appreciate the prayers that are said each week for our committee, for our future Incumbent, and our work on behalf of the parish.

Every blessing to Andrea as she embarks on a new ministry with the people of God. Let us give God thanks for His many blessings and faithful promises!

MESSAGE FROM ANDREA

On Sunday, May 21, with sadness in my heart, I announced to the People of CCDP that my time with them will be coming to an end in June. I have been so blessed to work with the staff and people of CCDP- they have been such a loving, inspiring and supportive family in Christ!

With a joyful and humble heart, I am delighted to announce that I have accepted God's calling to a new ministry as Incumbent of St. Timothy's, Agincourt- a loving, caring community, worshipping Almighty God and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit! My new appointment begins August 1, 2017.

Many of you know that I (along with Ben & David) have been in a process of discernment since August of last year. It is so wonderful to know that God's promises are faithful and true- and that He has good things in store for us all.

I will be continuing my daily prayers for both the people of CCDP over the days and weeks ahead.

May I ask your prayers for both churches- and for our family as we go through another transition and embrace this new calling! I thank God for His incredible blessings and look forward to serving Him in this new place with a joyful heart!
