The program is designed especially for our fifth grade "tweens" (not yet teenagers, they are in be"tween") and their parents. The leaders for the event are parishioners who are committed to making a connection with the tweens and helping them see that our community is interested in them during these important years of growth and change. Registration is required ($75) and will open in early fall, with very limited space in each session. The 2018 date choices for this two-day (Friday and Saturday) event are October 19 - 20 or November 30 - December 1. It is open for Christ Church parishioners. Community members can register only after registration has closed, and only if space remains.  Register here » through October 1.  We will contact you after registration closes to confirm your date.

A Night in bethlehem

This very special and meaningful interactive experience was for all ages.
