Over the next program year, Christ Church will intentionally seek "The Way of Love," a program of discipleship of The Episcopal Church. We will be exploring the Way of Love in forums, with online resources, and connecting our various ministries to the seven practices of the Way of Love .

Thank you, Aaron Todd
We give thanks to God and to Aaron Todd for his staff ministry as Youth Band Worship Leader for the past two years. Not only has he beautifully and faithfully led many hearts to praise and worship Jesus, but Aaron’s own heart of service and love has been an inspiration to the youth he has served. Aaron is now stepping down from this staff role as he takes on other responsibilities in his life. But he will remain as a volunteer of this parish to support the Youth Ministry and to help out from time to time. God bless you, Aaron!
