“We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted
by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
– I Thessalonians 1:3
Christ Church believes that all believers are ministers of the Gospel, whatever their age or life condition. We celebrate the gifts of the Spirit poured out onto individuals and the community as a whole, and seek to match people to ministries for which they are gifted. Thanks to the generosity and ministry of gifted members of the community, we box far beyond our weight in terms the extent of our programs and impact on the surrounding community. You are welcome to learn more about how to get involved in what God is doing in and through this congregation – here are some of the ways to jump in:
