WORSHIP MINISTERS SCHEDULE
EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES
Sunday School - 9 am
What's the Big Deal About the Incarnation? Even people who have been church members for years may not grasp the profound depth of the Incarnation as we zoom through Advent toward Christmas Day. Through December 20, Fr. Hunter will teach our class through the Advent season using the book On The Incarnation by St. Athanasius as the primary text. We meet in the Community Center. You can watch the live stream online here.
Sunday Worship For Kids - 9 am
Sunday School is held at 9 am for children ages preschool through 5th grade; nursery and childcare will also be provided for infants and toddlers. Our theme for the fall quarter will teach kids about the superheroes of the Bible.
Ministry with children happens in the Promise Land wing of our campus and includes special worship time for ages 3-5 years and nursery care during the Sunday service. Children ages 6 (1st grade) and up are encouraged to worship with their families. We understand they are not usually still or silent, but we welcome them and believe there is great value to having them join us in worship.
Sunday Eucharist - 10:30 am
Our Sunday worship service at 10:30 emphasizes the "three streams" of our Anglican faith: Scripture, Sacraments, and Spirit. The focus centers on the authority of Scripture and is expressed through observing the time-honored sacraments while experiencing the power, freedom, and ministry of the Holy Spirit. This is a liturgical service and includes Holy Communion; all baptized Christians are welcome to receive from the Lord's table.
Seating is limited with social distancing during Covid-19, so please call the church office at 772.562.8670 to reserve a seat. It is also live-streamed. We look forward to seeing you!
ALPHA at Christ Church Starting in January
Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Look for more information to come on this exciting ministry that will start in January. Contact Fr. Hunter Van Wagenen for additional information.
Prayer ministry is open to men and women at Christ Church and includes prayer teams during the services, intercessors and prayer warriors, and upcoming special services focused on healing prayer and soaking prayer. For information on this program, please contact Deacon Kim Allen.
Thankful Thursdays Worship - 5:45 pm on Dec. 17
Plan to join us for three Thursdays this fall to worship the Lord in the Spirit and led by the Christ Church Band, to offer our prayers at His throne of grace, and to hear His Truth - all followed by a free supper for those who wish to stay. The next Thankful Thursday is Dec. 17 at 5:45 pm in the Nave of the Church. We will begin with a medley of worship songs and experience a journey from la ment to hope.
