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 opprtunities 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!

Introducing Rev. Jeremy Lucas, currently of Battleground, Washington. Jeremy is originally from Alabama, and his first career was as an attorney. He went to General Theological Seminary in New York and was ordained about 10 years ago. After serving as Rector of a church in Alabama, he spent a few years in Namibia, Africa where he was one of the Deans of St. George’s Anglican Cathedral. He has been at The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit in Battleground for a little over two years. Jeremy is married and has a 9-year-old daughter. He is deeply spiritual, passionate about outreach, caring, funny, and smart. He also does work as a Stewardship Mentor for congregations throughout the country.
Jeremy’s first Sunday with us will be February 9th. He is super excited about coming to Christ Church and getting to know us. In addition, those of us who have begun to get to know him are already enjoying him so much!
We offer our deepest gratitude to the Search Committee for their tireless and prayerful efforts at getting us to this point. They have had a Spirit-filled journey, and their work has been fruitful. Thank you to Mike Anthony, Bill Barry, Christine Boyd, Jack Eft, John Engle, Diana Fisher, Catherine Goodheart, Mary Morris, Tracy Norris, Eleanor Suman, and especially the wonderful leadership of Bonnie Umland. We appreciate you.
Thank you also to our Interim Rector, Ken Dorsch, who has served us faithfully over the past year and kept the ship afloat. We are grateful for his leadership and preparation for the changes ahead. Ken will be with us through the end of January, and we hope you will join us for our Annual All-Parish Meeting on Sunday, January 26th, not only to celebrate the past year at our church, but to thank Ken for his year of service here.
We anticipate that this is going to be a great adventure for all of us! Once again, God is faithful.
