Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church
We invite you to become a part of our faith community and of the living body of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Christ Church seeks to take after our namesake. We're far from perfect, but our heart's desire is that Christ will be at the center of our life as a faith community in the Episcopal tradition. Above all, we aspire to help each other grow into the fullness of God's wishes for us. We aim to treat each other with the love of Christ, to approach God with the faith of Christ, and to serve the world in the Spirit of Christ - in order to take after Him in our life together with Him.
We are delighted that you are interested in Christ Church. We invite you to worship with us, study and learn with us through Sunday School classes or a Bible Study, enjoy fellowship with us at Wednesday Night Suppers or other various fellowship opportunities, and serve with us in our church, community and world. We have two parking spots reserved at all times for Visitors in our main parking lot. They are for you! Please make yourselves known to us on Sunday morning when you visit. Our Welcome Table is in the lobby (called the "Rotunda" area) of our education office building. It is our privilege to help you find Sunday School classes, the Nursery Suites or answer any questions that you might have. Christ Church is a vibrant, diverse and spiritual community that is dedicated to serving God. We are here to make you feel welcome and help acclimate you to Christ Episcopal Church. The Newcomers Committee sponsors a number of events throughout the year. Please come join us, so that we may learn more about you; and you can learn more about us.

Adult Confirmation and Inquirers Course begins in late winter. Sessions are held primarily on Sunday mornings in the Chapel from 10:00 - 10:50 AM. Course includes several Wednesday evenings at Christ Church with dinner. These classes are for any adult who wishes to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church, for any confirmed Episcopalian who wishes to learn the basics of faith, and for anyone who simply wants to explore what we believe. The classes explore the basics of Christianity (God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, history of the Church, etc.) as well as the way the Episcopal Church lives out that basic faith through worship according to The Book of Common Prayer, Bible Study, and service to others. Registration is required. Please email Jenny Beaumont at email@example.com or call 704-714-6945. For more information, contact the Rev. Martha Hedgpeth, 704-714-6955 or Jenny Beaumont at 704-333-0378.
Our 8th grade students typically are enrolled in confirmation classes as a group each fall.
