Christ Church has a missional worship schedule each weekend. We believe God's vision for Christ Church is for Sunday mornings to be a time of worship, community and spiritual growth.

Each week, we offer four weekend worship opportunities, each with the same message but different styles (Saturday at 6pm, and Sunday at 8am, 9am, and 11am). We also offer Runners Chapel, a time of devotions held outdoors for runners, walkers and cyclists of all skill levels, and Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered 12-step recovery ministry. Formal or casual, traditional or contemporary, reflective or dynamic ... chances are we have a worship service that will help you draw closer to God.
Communion is celebrated at the Traditional Communion Services at 8am, 11am, 2pm and 3:16pm every Sunday and usually the first weekend of every month at all services. Communion at Christ Church, and all United Methodist churches, is open to all who want to follow Jesus Christ, regardless of age or religious background.
Praise Service - Saturday| 6pm | Fort Lauderdale Gym The Praise Service is held in a casual, comfortable environment. You can feel free to come as you are, and grab a cup of coffee on your way in to the service. Music is led by the Praise Band, with song lyrics projected on a large screen so everyone can participate. Pastors wear more casual attire instead of traditional robes. This service regularly uses video and other media. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.
Runners Chapel - Sunday | 6am | West Circle Drive | Fort Lauderdale Campus This ministry, led by Christ Church senior pastor and marathon runner Brett Opalinski, is part of the United Methodist Fresh Expressions initiative. The goal is to present a new form of worship for our changing culture, as well as to benefit those who may not be part of any church. Runners Chapel is another choice for members and attenders, as well as the community of athletes near the Fort Lauderdale campus early Sunday mornings.
Traditional Communion Service - Sunday | 8am | Pompano Beach Chapel The service is held in the beautiful and historic Pompano Beach Chapel. We read the Scriptures from the lectionary each week, and the worship has a more "high church" feel. Holy Communion is celebrated weekly and Pastors wear robes. Music is led from the organ, and we sing traditional hymns.

Traditional Communion Service - Sunday | 11am | Fort Lauderdale Sanctuary The Traditional Service features traditional hymns and music led by our Chancel Choir. Pastors wear traditional robes, and we pray the Lord's Prayer and recite the Apostles' Creed each week. Holy Communion is celebrated each week.
Dinner Church - Sunday | 2pm | Pompano Beach Sanctuary Just as the early Christians incorporated worship and a shared meal, Christ Church brings together the fellowship of food and worship. This is a shared meal provided to the community, with hymns, a devotion and tabletop discussions to encourage conversation leading to spiritual growth. Holy Communion is served weekly.
Love in Action Service - Sunday | 3:16pm | Pompano Beach Chapel Go deeper in the conversation started at Dinner Church. Richard Storts leads this casual, interactive service in the historic Pompano Beach Chapel.
Taizé Prayer Service - First Wednesday of each month | 6:30pm | Fort Lauderdale Sanctuary Taizé, pronounced tah-ZAY, is a candlelit meditative service, rather than a sermon style service. It is centered around music, scripture readings, prayer and silence to quiet the mind, open the heart and feed the soul, a time of quiet and solitude in the presence of God.
