At Christ Church, we cherish one another and gladly welcome newcomers. Radiant fellowship is one of the hallmarks of our parish life.
Coffee hour, held in Graham Hall every Sunday, after the 10:15 a.m. service, is an easy way to enter and participate in our community. Members of the congregation provide refreshments in turn.
The lower lawn is the setting for the Wednesday evening barbecues in the summer. We contribute potluck side dishes to complement the efforts of our expert grill masters.
For 35 years, parishioners at Christ Church have gathered for Agape Fellowship meals that help us become better acquainted with each other. Agape groups of eight or nine persons are formed each spring and fall and meet four times during the next six months in the members’ homes to share a potluck meal. The convivial meetings—usually but not always dinners—are scheduled at the convenience of the table members. The composition of the groups changes to bring different people together in each cycle. Singles as well as couples are welcome.
Join us as we celebrate the feasts and seasons of the church year.
On the Twelfth Night after Christmas we celebrate Epiphany. We recall the three kings’ visit to the Christ Child with food and drink at an “Olde English” party, a candlelight service, and a Nativity tableau.
During Lent we gather for soup suppers and Bible study.
