First Time at Christ Church

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. On Sunday mornings, our historic sanctuary is filled with love and joy, children and youth are flocking to our programs, and our mission and outreach activities are giving us the opportunity to serve our neighbors across town and around the world. We would love for you to join us!
-The Rev. Jim Adams, Rector
