Come and Join Us at Christ Church This Holiday Season

Come to Christ Episcopal Church; be with us and rejoice as we prepare our hearts and lives for the One!  Come as the shepherds did on that most awesome of evenings, and celebrate the gift we receive in hearing the story and learning the Messiah’s name – Jesus, who is Lord and Savior.

The schedule of services throughout Advent, Christmas and New Year’s Day are printed below.  As a church sign recently seen had pronounced – “Avoid the Christmas Rush – Come to Church this Sunday!”  Let the Hope, Promise and Joy of this Advent and Christmas season be awakened in your life.  May God watch over you, your loved ones and friends and continue to richly bless you.

To those who are here every week; to those who are here from time to time; to those who have been away from us and to those who are new – no matter where you are in your spiritual journey, come be with us!

Christmas Cantata : December 17 @ 8:00 & 10:30am – Come to the Manger” is a compelling Christmas cantata that sparkles with the artistry of composer Mark Hayes. It will be presented as the message of the day by the combined choirs of Christ Church this coming Sunday morning, and at both services. The work will be accompanied by guest pianist Naho Bessho. The cantata is an inventive combination of traditional carols and spirituals, with two narrators providing the biblical commentary throughout. Please join us in celebrating the glad news through this inspiring presentation.

Annual Caroling Event : December 17 @ 7:00pm – This third annual event will take place in Old Brick, which will be decorated for the season.
