Latest News & Updates

Hello Christ Church!

If you walked thought the doors of Christ Church this past week, you would have been transported to an entirely different realm. Vacation Bible School is upon us! "Christ Church Castle" was bustling with kiddos and helpers all week - learning about Christ our KING. 

VBS has been "in the works" (via lots of scribbled paper and many meetings) since around April of this year. It was truly awesome to see it all come together this week. You, my dear Christ Church, made this happen and it has been an absolute joy to see everyone work together and using their gifts so well. Soli Deo Gloria!

Thank you all for your prayers for VBS this week. Please continue to pray that these little ones will learn more about their true King, and store his word in their hearts. May the Lord's kingdom grow and he be praised! 

Speaking of praising the Lord, this past Sunday, not only did we have a baptism, but three new ruling elders and five new deacons were duly ordained and installed here at Christ Church. We have so much to be thankful for!

It is always good to be a member of a local church, but it is particularly sweet to be involved here at Christ Church right now and to be a part of the many ways the the Lord is working in and through his people. I strongly encourage you to read through the announcements below and find specific ways to join in this precious fellowship.

Yours in Christ,

Rachael McIntosh
Director of Media and Communications
