Christ Church is excited to be the newest sponsoring parish of the fast growing national Episcopal Ministry: Holy Hikes. There are 12 chapters nationally and we are each exploring new ways to worship God outside of the traditional church setting. We pray “give us all a reverence for the earth as your own creation, that we may use its resources rightly in the service of others and to your honor and glory (BCP, Prayers of the People, form IV), and this is the guiding principle behind Holy Hikes. We will celebrate a traditional Rite Two service along a short hike, stopping along the way to read, sing, pray and celebrate the Eucharist in the great outdoors. Please look for upcoming information on our Facebook page “Holy Hikes – West Alabama” and we look forward to this new way to worship together!
