Children’s Ministry: Children may begin in the nursery (the room to the left of the church offices) and return to their parents’ care as Holy Communion begins. Praise God for our new teaching team!
Can you share non-perishable food items for members of our community enduring financial stress? Individual items &/or care packages with basic food necessities are welcome. Please leave in the kitchen near the Care Package sign. Families may take one package per week, as needed and as available, for yourselves or a friend/neighbor experiencing food insecurity.

Did you know that Christ Church has a volunteer Finance Committee that meets monthly to assess our resources and offer counsel to the Rector, Vestry, and Asociasion Religiosa? The members include church Accountant Edgar Gomez, church Treasurer Mariana Navarrete, Committee Chairman Lewis Adams, Daniel Anaya, Enrique Molina, and Chris Stephens. They play an invaluable role in our stewardship!
