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)

  • Bishop Jennifer Issues Pastoral Letter

    "Living Fearlessly, Led by Young People"

    Dear Ones:

    Two years ago, when I first introduced myself to you, I wrote about choosing the Episcopal Church as a young adult. “This church has taught me to live fearlessly, embraced by God’s love in Christ,” I said.

    I made my choice nearly thirty years ago, but the experience of being a young adult faced with life’s big choices has been much on my mind in recent weeks. Like many of you, I have been watching with admiration the courageous leadership of young adults who are pushing us to contend with immigration reform and gun violence—two critical issues that divide us from one another.

    On Monday, I joined with faith leaders from the Disciples of Christ for a meeting with Hodge Patel, U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly’s state director. We talked about the young adults known as Dreamers—the more than 800,000 people who were brought to this country without documentation as children. The plight of Dreamers is increasingly uncertain, ...
