Join Our Children & Youth as They Lead Our Service This Sunday!

From the communion bread to the decorations, from the sermon to the prayers of the people, our young people have prepared a thoughtful worship experience to share with all of us at 9:30. Join us afterward for a reception honoring our new confirmands AND our Youth Art Show! Our Youth have been working all year to create art based on the "Fruits of the Spirit."

Join the Christ Church LinkedIN Group
In response to parishioner suggestions, the Vestry has created a private LinkedIn group to allow Christ Church parishioners to connect professionally.  On LinkedIn, search "Christ Church Winnetka"  and click on our group name to request membership.  We encourage our younger parishioners who are away at college or who have recently graduated to join as well since many parishioners have expressed interest in mentoring others interested in their fields.
