Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church!

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

Click here if you want to know about our Christmas Tree Sale!

Would you like to DOUBLE THE IMPACT of buying a Christmas Tree from us?  Then buy two!  We are happy to accept donations for trees to be given to needy families identified by the Salvation Army. 
We will deliver them, too! 

Your donation of a tree to provide Christmas to a
family in need
will make this holiday
a double joy for all!

Thank you!


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)

The Rev. Evelyn Wheeler, Rector

The Prophets and the People

Join us for an exciting new class on Old Testament Prophets and how Jesus responded to them!  This class will be held "Between the Services" at 9:10 a.m. on Advent Sundays from Dec 1 - Dec 23.  In short, to better understand the Hebrew Scriptures is to better understand Jesus. To read the Hebrew Scriptures is to read what Jesus and his disciples read. We will be discussing four stories from the Old Testament, exploring the stories of Job, Moses, Esther, and Isaiah. Emphasis will be placed on the context in which the stories were written as well as how they relate to the story of Jesus.

Living Well Through Advent

On Mondays in Advent we are offering a Bible and Meditation course on Practicing Peace with All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind.  Classes will be held from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. each Monday, looking at the Scriptures and meditating on finding peace in troubled times.  

It's Time to Pledge!

See the News and Notes, posted at:, for information about our financial needs.

On that same page, you will find a link to a pledge card you can download to fill in, and mail to the church, or drop it at the office, or fold it and put it in the plate on November 17!

Please respond if at all possible, by Sunday, November 17.  (Vestry meets on the 19th and we will need a sense of where things are by that time.)

Thank you so very much!
