Advent & Christmas

pageant-angels-banner.jpg

Advent is a time to prepare for the gift of God's love, in the birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas is a season to celebrate that gift. Being involved in a vibrant, diverse, and welcoming community like Christ Church is a great way to do both. Whoever you are and wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
