Learn about our programs and offerings during Lent.
Christ Church is our meeting place with God, a school for shaping character for our children and youth, a home where we celebrate and renew our faith again and again, and an encouragement to awaken to the abundant life Jesus came to bring.
Our goals are for children, ages birth through 5th grade, of Christ Church to understand that they are known and loved by God and their church family and that they belong to God’s family and to the family of Christ Church.
The Youth Ministry of Christ Church embraces and supports our youth and their families, inspires and guides their spiritual growth as disciples of Christ, and empowers them to serve the church and the world.
We are in the 22-40 (ish) age range. We come together, from a diverse range of backgrounds, for formation and fellowship.
We offer a wide range of diverse opportunities for formation, education and spiritual growth both on Sundays and throughout the week.
Christ Church is a place for all to feel connected and at home. Come, be together, connect and enjoy the fellowship and fun we enjoy together as a Christ Church family.
Our mission is to create a community in which the joys and sorrows of life are honored and consecrated, so that no one walks alone at Christ Church. Use this link to learn more.
