Welcome 

Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church!

 

 Where we can all Celebrate God's Love, Seek God's Will, and Serve God's People.

 

We love our church!  And we hope that you will, too! 

 

We come from many different religious backgrounds -- some of us are "cradle Episcopalians" while others started out as atheists and agnostics, Methodists, Baptists, Lutherans, or Catholics.  We've lived here all our lives, like our parents and grandparents before us, or we've moved here as children or as adults.  We prize our shared delight in worship and community here, we prize our individual uniquenesses and our commonalities.  We find, in the Episcopal Church, that we are able to be different in some ways but still be one in Christ. 

 

We are an inclusive community!  All are welcome here!

We strongly believe that nothing can ever separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus, as Saint Paul said (Romans 8:38).  We welcome all, whatever your past or present, to come and worship with us, to learn with us, to pray with us, and to grow with us!  And -- perhaps -- we can worship with you, learn with you, pray with you, and grow with you, as well!

 

What's on our Website? 

On this website, you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship.

 

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area,
we would love to have you be our guest!

Won't you come visit us soon?

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age, situation, background, and present.

"May God bless you richly, that you may bear abundant fruit and glorify the Father."  (John 15:8)

Evelyn Wheeler, Rector

Consecration of Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows

May 17 UPDATE:  A new video retrospective, with highlights from +Jennifer's consecration is available here.

Well, it's done!  We have a new bishop, and high hopes for our future together.  You will find extensive information and photos on the diocesan website.  You can watch the archived webstream of the consecration service on the website or on the Diocesan page on YouTube.  Here are links to a few recent news articles:  

WTRH (Indy station); USAToday; Episcopal News Service; Indianapolis Recorder; "ScreenNY"; FoxNews; and WFYI/NPR "No Limits".

The photo includes Bishop Jennifer, her husband Harrison Burrows and their son Timothy.  

+Jennifer is from New York, ordained by the Diocese of Central New York, and a graduate of Smith College, Cornell University, and the Church Divinity School of the Pacific. She has expertise in historic preservation and a passion for issues including gun violence, social justice, and racial and class reconciliation. She also maintains a strong focus in guiding others through the practice of spiritual direction.
