Ministry is at the heart of who we are as Christians, Episcopalians and members of Christ Church. As it says in the Catechism: " The ministry of lay persons is to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever they may be and, according to the gifts given them, to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world; and to take their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church."
At Christ Church we offer a multitude of ministry opportunities for people to take their place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church.
Please explore the “MINISTRIES” and “GET CONNECTED” portions of our website to find out more.
