Meaningful Worship + Creative Learning +
In an Historic Setting
you have been to Christ Church many times or whether you have just
discovered us, we are delighted that you are here. For over three
hundred years Christ Church has been known as a place to deepen your
relationship with God, nurture a sense of community, and make an
impact on the world.
As the Rector, I am firmly
committed to three goals: Worship
that is dynamic and meaningful; Learning
that is creative and engaging, and Service,
that passionately spills out into the community and world beyond.
Many have found respite, sustenance, and personal challenge
within our walls, but there are many ways one can connect with us
even from a distance. My hope and prayer is that you will
place here too.
Peruse our website; I
am certain you will find just the right thing for you and your family.
And do contact us; I would be happy to begin a lifelong
conversation with you.
Lisa S. Mitchell, Rector
