Weekly and Seasonal Ministries
Said Holy Eucharist Rite I: 8:00 AM

Holy Eucharist and Healing Liturgy: 12:00 Noon
Coffer Hour follows the 10:15 AM service.
The Coffee Hour is a social gathering that gives us the opportunity to build relationships between the members of our church family and also fellowship with guests and visitors. Despite its name, other beverages are always served, along with a variety of cookies, cakes, and other delicious morsels.
This short and simple service helps people address the problems within their lives and the losses they have suffered.
This service is our primary religious activity during the week. The service begins with prayers and scripture readings. These are followed by homily or sermon provided by our Rector.
Perhaps the most beautiful, and certainly the friendliest, part of the service is the “Passing of Peace,” which is passed from one person to another by smiles, handshakes, and hugs. The culmination of the service is the actual Eucharist or distribution of Communion. All baptized Christians (regardless of denominational affiliation) are welcome to come up to the rail and receive the sacrament of Holy Communion.
The primary difference between the 8:00 AM and 10:15 AM services is that at the 10:15 AM service, we include hymns with choir and musical accompaniment (organ and/or piano).
Prayers for Peace
This short and simple service helps people address the conflicts within the world that surround us.
Invited speakers and other special presentations are traditionally and typically associated with major events within the church calendar year.
At Christ Church, we truly believe that the youth are the future of our congregation. Our Sunday School provides our children with a basic understanding of what it means to be a Christian and an Episcopalian.
During non-pandemic times, classes are available for children ages 3 years through 6th grade. Sunday School does not meet during the Summer months.
The youth group serves two functions.
As a social gathering, it allows our adolescents and young adults to get to know each other as well as strengthen existing relationships.
As an educational activity, it reinforces and expands upon the fundamental lessons taught in Sunday School by teaching them both the privileges and obligations of being a Christian.
During normal times (non-pandemic), our Youth Group meets most Sunday evenings, except during the summer months.
