St. Christopher's is a compassionate community that welcomes all in worship, fellowship and service to God.  Our shared experience of Christ's love transcends simple togetherness and creates a personal sense of belonging.

 

Upcoming Events

Messy Church | February 22 | 5:00-7:00 PM | Latham Hall

Transforming Questions | February 26 | 5:00-7:00 PM | Latham Hall 
Father Bob will be offering and facilitating an excellent educational opportunity for you through the Lent and Easter seasons entitled “Transforming Questions”. This will be a 10-session course beginning March 5, the First Sunday in Lent…however, a kick-off session will be offered on February 26: “What do I have to believe to be an Episcopalian?”  We will break for Easter and conclude the final five sessions from April 30 through May 28.  Transforming Questions is an introduction to the Christian faith for newcomers. It is also a good refresher on the Christian faith for longtime church members who are wondering about basics of the faith. Transforming Questions helps to build community among those who are seekers and those who are longtime members, those who are old and those who are young, those who are questioning for the first time and those who are questioning for the thousandth time.  "It’s an exciting journey: full of twists and turns, ups and downs, as you wrestle anew with your faith."  Please email Karisa to RSVP or if you would like to sign up to bring breakfast foods.
