    Christ Church is a growing, caring, sacramental community. We are dedicated to providing an open, Christ-centered sanctuary for worship, reflection, education and service for our children and all who enter.

    We are a body of Christ focused on bringing love and appreciation to those in our parish as well as those in need in our community.

    From vibrant Sunday school and youth events to engaging opportunities for adult education, monthly get togethers for dinner and fellowship and many outreach opportunities at home and all over the world, Christ Church is alive, involved and bright with the light of the Son.

    We look forward to seeing you!

  • Learn about our mission, our beliefs, and the hope we have in Jesus.

    We are a church that embraces tradition without traditionalism.  Someone once said that tradition is the living faith of the dead and traditionalism is the dead faith of the living.

    tradition is the living faith of the dead and
    traditionalism is the dead faith of the living.
                                                                     -Jaroslav Pelikan 

    We express a strong commitment to the ancient worship traditions of our faith, and also believe that as our world changes, so must we find God anew in every generation.

    Through our weekly worship, we experience God in our sacraments, those grace-filled symbols of our tradition that call us beyond what we can see and understand, to the infinite God of mystery.

    God is made known to us in our life together, and God is also made unknown as we deepen our faith in the One beyond our complete understanding.

    We need each other. We need authentic, concrete spiritual practices that form our lives in the shape of Jesus’ life.  

     At Christ Church Parish, we have a shared purpose, accepted ways of behaving toward one another, rich traditions, and a deep knowledge that we care about one another.

     As members of Christ Church we make three basic commitments to God and to each other as we journey together closer to the heart of God and to the deepest callings in our own lives.  

     

    PRAY
    We commit ourselves to deeply engage in prayer, throughout the week;  prayer is crucial to growing and deepening our relationship with God and honing our ability to hear God’s calling on our lives.  We commit ourselves to nurture the life of God in our community by gathering with other members of Christ Church community regularly, inside and outside of worship, in one-on-one or small group settings, for prayer, care and fellowship.  This commitment matters because we are more than a worship service – we are a worshiping community.

    SERVE
    We commit ourselves to discern and live out our core Christian value of service.  We aspire to commit five hours a month to the
    community of Christ Church and five hours per month to our local community, the nation and the world.  Even as we engage in this mission, we know we will find ourselves healed and transformed, and more capable of seeking and serving Christ in all people. This commitment matters because we seek to walk in the way of Jesus, spreading God’s mission of healing, justice and transformation.

    GIVE
    Realizing that all we have comes from God, we give freely and generously of our financial resources.  We want to use our money to sustain the life of the world, to sustain the life of Christ Church community, and to reflect a commitment to living as we were made to live: in interdependence and compassion, with simplicity and intention. This commitment matters because our relationship to money has everything to do with our
    relationship with God.
