A church is not a building, it is a community. For 190 years, a community of people have gathered together under the name Christ Church Parish. Or to put it another way, Christ Church is a group of people doing something old in new and exciting ways. No matter who you are, what you believe, or what you have been through, you are invited to be a part of this community.
Christ Church Parish seeks to be a loving family of Christians who, by God’s grace and Spirit, prays, thinks, and serves in the name of Christ Jesus.
Christ Church is a group of people seeking God and figuring out what it means to love the world. We believe that God is real, that God loves us, and that God has called us to work in His name.
As Episcopalians, we are very different people with different opinions and insights, but we share a common faith that God is working in our lives and in the world. We share a common Creed that has been handed down for 2000 years.
In our community, all are welcome. Your life can be a mess (if you feel that you are not perfect, you will fit right in. Neither are we). You can have questions and doubts (we believe in the importance of reason and the intellectual questioning of our faith). You simply have to want to know more about the love of God and be willing to follow Jesus.
The vast majority of our ‘work’ is done by the people who are Christ Church in their everyday lives. We want to send people out to do the work of God.
As a community, we gather in worship (primarily on Sunday Morning). We are raising up a new generation of saints and want to give families the tools to raise their children to love and serve the Lord. We learn and grow. We work to build community and fellowship within the church. We work together to serve all of God’s children, for we believe that God cares about how we treat the poor, the hungry, the oppressed and the downcast. To love God is to love others.
The best time to see what we are about as a community is during worship on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. There is a place in our community for you.
There are numerous ways to get involved in our church community. Below are just a few of the many ministries that we offer. We invite you to join us at Christ Church each Sunday morning for our Eucharistic Services. In addition, we offer Christian Education for all ages. The Episcopal Youth Community is an excellent way for your child to get involved through fellowship and spiritual growth. Our Outreach ministry is a wonderful opportunity to donate back to the community by way of time and talent.
