Starting April 8, 2018, Christ Church will launch a missional worship schedule on Sunday mornings. We believe God's vision for Christ Church is for Sunday mornings to be a time of worship, community and growth.
The new Sunday morning schedule will allow services to have a worship order that encourages connecting with God and responding to the Holy Spirit. Worship services will be guided by the vision of helping you connect with God and take clear "next steps" in your faith journey.
Grow in community
The Christian journey is meant to to be walked together. We want you to connect to each other and with the pastors. We'll now set aside an hour before or after worship, depending on which service you attend, when you can get to get to know others in classes and groups or over coffee.
Grow in faith
We believe it's important for all of us be growing closer to God as disciples of Jesus Christ. That goes beyond meaningful worship to studying the Bible in groups and classes. The new schedule creates a time and pathway for spiritual formation.

The Grow Hour
The Grow Hour is time set aside for spiritual growth and building community among worshipers. Grow Groups are small groups that meet weekly for 10-12 weeks, a semester. A variety of groups for all ages and spiritual maturity levels will be offered each semester. The first semester, starting April 15, will be shorter. The final class offerings are not yet available. Between semesters, we will gather as a church community for fun and to get to know one another better. While the schedule is not yet set, expect a churchwide brunch, ministry updates, worship workshops, ways to serve fairs, celebrations and more.
