Want to know more about us?

Our goal at Christ Church is to live out our faith personally, locally, and internationally. We encourage personal faith through the relationships and accountability found in groups and studies. Hard questions and doubters are welcome. Locally, we serve through programs such as our local food pantry, after school tutoring, and community meals. Internationally, we combine with the efforts of thousands of Methodist congregations to minister in areas of injustice and insecurity.
