Christ Church UM

At Christ Church, we come from different backgrounds and experiences, but we come together because we've found some things that are important to us... real relationships and a caring community. We've also found something so much bigger than ourselves-- a way to grow a deeper relationship with God.

Christ Church is more than just a building. It's a group of people coming together to leave a personal and eternal "fingerprint" on the world around us.

Our faith touches everything we do, and we want to share the life-changing power of God's truth with you and your family. The Bible isn't just a book we talk about on Sundays-- it guides our daily lives and is where we find God's purpose for our lives.
