New partnership with Autism Society of Central Virginia helps celebrate God's diversity

Christ Church is thrilled to partner with the Autism Society of Central Virginia (ASCV) to host their summer camp. Being neurologically diverse is a reality for many of us, and we want the autism community to feel at home in our community. Join us in saying out-loud and proud: different is good.

The Grand Finale of the ASCV's AuSome 54-Day Challenge is this Saturday and we will welcome participants at Christ Church to receive their rewards, t-shirts, and more. If you're on campus, give a welcoming wave -- and everyone, please join us in prayer and celebration for this budding relationship.

Sundays at 9 AM: Stories, Music, and Fun for families with "Church on the Playground"
Sundays at 9 AM | CCE Playground
Families with young children can gather on the playground at 9 AM on Sunday mornings. Bible stories, music, and activities will keep little bodies engaged and growing with God. Grownups can chat, kiddos can play, and everyone can gather in the spirit of holiness. Families are welcome to come and go as needed from the sanctuary to the playground. The worship service will be streamed to an outdoor speaker so you can listen to the indoor service, too, and Holy Communion will be served on the playground. Additionally, the Family Room (on the left side as you enter the sanctuary) will be open for diaper changes, nursing, rocking, etc.
