Advent Story Time
Your family is invited to join us as we read a wonderful storybook each week during Advent.
We are passionate about creating a church family that fosters authentic friendships and biblical teaching that truly inspires all children to carry the light of Jesus into their world. Our Family Ministry seeks to come alongside parents to support them in raising children of faith on every step of the journey.

Christ Church Connects
Families coming alongside of beloved members of Christ Church.
As followers of Christ we are called to be His hands and feet in our communities. We read in the New Testament of our instruction to "care for one another...bear one another's burdens...encourage and build up one another...and love one another." At this time, older members of our church may be feeling lonely because they cannot gather with friends and their family may live far away. Are you able to call, send cards and come along side one of these beloved members?
