Worship together is a transforming experience.
As we gather, we recognize that we are a part of something far greater than ourselves. As the music of worship plays we become a part of it as we blend our voices and hearts together in faith.
The reading of Scripture reminds us both of being a part of deep river that flows through us even as the words challenge, inspire and sometimes, confront us. In Holy Communion, we meet the presence of the Risen Christ and know he is near.
Worship is our weekly opportunity to tend the spark that feeds the flame of faith—a flame so much a part of the symbol of the United Methodist Church. It’s because of this that we care about including you and that your experience in worship. At Christ Church is meaningful and transformational. We offer a variety of ways to connect, participate and grow. We have open doors, open hearts and open minds at Christ United Methodist Church.

Membership and Confirmation
Becoming a Member of the Church:
Is God calling you to join a community of Christian believers? What does it mean to take upon yourself the vows of membership? How does one go about finding answers to the great questions of the Bible—of life? We encourage you to explore faith with us at Christ Church. Classes are held periodically for anybody wishing to explore the basic and deeper understandings of the Christian faith and become to a member of the church. You may contact the church office for a schedule of classes and to learn about the various membership options.
This program is designed for youth in 8th grade and above. In this six month course, which is designed to teach Christian values, history and practice, youth are prepared to confirm for themselves the vows made on their behalf in their baptism. Of course, we welcome those wishing to be baptized, as well. During this class your teen will gain an appreciation for Christian history and tradition and become a stronger disciple for Jesus Christ. Pease contact the church office for more information.
Holy Communion is that sacrament of the faith where we experience anew the Easter love of God to us in Jesus Christ. We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month. Because of the gracious nature of Holy Communion, it is open to all. We receive Holy Communion is a variety of ways and each one is meaningful. Christ teaches patience and acceptance, so if you don’t feel comfortable partaking in this most Holy of rituals you are more than welcomed to observe only.
If you have problems moving and would like to receive Communion in your seat, please tell an usher prior to the beginning of Service and it will be brought to you.
