Celebration of Episcopal Assignment Update

September 07, 2016
As you plan for the upcoming Celebration of Episcopal Assignment on October 8, 2016 here are a few details that you may find helpful:

Parking - There will be ample onsite parking at Christ Church United Methodist, however, shuttle service will be available if you would rather park offsite and be dropped off at the covered entrance  at the church.

The two offsite parking locations are: Dunn Elementary located at 2010 Rudy Lane, Louisville, KY 40207 and the Summit Executive Suites located at 4350 Brownsboro Road (Please use the lots behind the building, the front lots will be in use by their employees).

As a show of hospitality, members of the Heartland District are asked to use offsite parking and allow members from other districts to use the parking at Christ Church.

As a fun road trip, churches may want to use their church van or other carpool opportunities and travel together. If you travel in a church van, please drop off passengers at the door under the portico and follow the signs to church van parking.

Childcare – Childcare will be available during the service. The deadline to register your child(ren) for childcare is October 3rd. Please contact Janet Hagerty at 502-893-2201 ext. 254. In order for the church to provide adequate staffing, Janet has to have a final count by October 3rd.

Offering - The offering that will be received during the worship service will go to the Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth. The Kentucky United Methodist Homes for Children & Youth has a 145 year history of serving young people—originally as an orphanage and now offering care to children with histories of abuse, neglect and/or family trauma.  Programs at the homes are both residential and community-based. 

Robing - All clergy are invited to robe for this event. Ordained Elders and Deacons should wear black robes or albs and red stoles.  Local Pastors should wear black robes.
