YOU BELONG HERE
Whoever you are or for whatever reason that you are looking at this website, we want you to know that in the Episcopal Church and particularly from the people of St. Christopher’s you will receive the Welcome of Christ.
What exactly does that mean?
It means that this is a church where you have a place to worship God first and foremost. You do not have to be an Episcopalian to come here. All are welcome. Many in our congregation have found their way to the Episcopal Church for a variety of reasons; this is a place of belonging.
We are centered in the Word of God and the preaching here is strong and central to our worship. It strengthens us to take the Word into the world and strive to live lives that reflect God’s love and justice. Like other churches in The Episcopal Church, we celebrate Holy Eucharist every Sunday. We live out the promises of Baptism by being faithful to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers. Everyone, from the smallest child to elders in the Christian way of life, is welcomed to the table of the Lord. And if you are not baptized and are wanting to know more about what Christians believe, our doors are especially open for you. If you are seeking a place to belong, look no farther. You have found it.
The doors of St. Christopher’s are open to you and the people of this parish are inviting you to come. You will also see us out in the community serving at the Lighthouse Youth Center, working with SILO and Family Promise and our Rector even teaches at Lincoln University. If you have left another church for whatever reason but are longing to worship God, come here. If you think you might be excluded for any reason, you won’t. If you want to worship God and be strengthened to live your life in a way that is faithful to the gospel, come here.
Enough words . . . we want you to walk through the doors of St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church. Be nourished by God’s Word and the Bread of Life. Find a community of believers with whom to pray, and work, and serve, as members of Christ’s body. We want to receive who you are and allow you to change our lives as well. Come this Sunday for worship and abide with us so that together we may know Jesus and change the world.
Because we want everyone to be included, St. Christopher’s is so happy to be able to provide a hearing loop to those who wear hearing aids. Just switch your hearing aid to ‘T’ to access the loop. If you do not wear a hearing aid and wish to have the benefit of the loop, you may ask the ushers and they will give you a headset to use.
