Community

Parish Life

One of the characteristics of Christchurch is that we have been made a family by God’s grace. All of the riches of Parish Life at this church are celebrations of that fact – that we have been bound together in love by God, the author and perfector of our love for one another. If you’re new among us, we’re so glad you’re a part of our family!

Advent Activities

During the Sunday school hour on the first Sunday in Advent, the entire parish comes together to make Advent Wreaths for Christmas. Because we have so many lovely Chrismons from over the years, we will make Advent Wreaths again! At our Advent Workshop on November 24th, we will make Advent wreaths you can take home to enjoy throughout Advent. Our tradition will continue as children hang Chrismons during our church family dinner known as the Tree Trim Dinner on December 4th. For more information please call Cindy McLaughlin, Ruth Brewbaker, or Christina Moore at 387-0566, ext. 210.
