Parish Life at Christ Church is rich and varied. We are a congregation that enjoys spending time with one another, be it through working on an outreach project together, sharing a meal or discussing the latest book at one of our monthly book clubs. Connecting with one another is a central aspect of our vision at Christ Church and we strive to offer events and activities which will make these connections a possibility.
Christ Church offers a variety of opportunities for fellowship and getting to know one another, and we hope you will join us at one of our gatherings!
To know and care for one another is central to our ministry as Christ’s body.
Men’s Breakfast Group
Once a month on Saturday morning- Christ Church’s Men’s Group gathers to create opportunities for men to develop friendships, deepen faith, and to support one another through life’s journey. We meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. The group is facilitated by the Rector Mark Pendleton. Contact Mark for more information.
Wednesday Morning Women’s Group
Our focus is to learn and grow, deepening our faith in God, and developing bonds with one another so that we hold confidences and pray for one another. Recently we explored the ancient tradition of Centering Prayer, with a book by an Episcopal priest, Cynthia Bourgeault, “Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening.”
The group meets every Wednesday at 10:30 am via Zoom:https://us02web.zoom.us/j/116881236?pwd=empqeTZBb2RENWF4ZTh2Vzl4ejd6QT09
