Being a Christian is less about cautiously avoiding sin than about courageously and actively doing God’s will.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.

C.S. Lewis

Jesus prepared a meal for the multitudes to remind us that we feed people not because we believe they deserve it, but because they’re hungry.

John Pavlovitz

It is Christ Himself, not the Bible, who is the true word of God.

C.S. Lewis

Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that

Martin Luther King Jr.

Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

Reverend Dietrich Bonhoeffer

In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possession and human success, but rather on how much we have loved.

St. John of the Cross

Our Rector
The Rev. James W. Erwin, Jr.

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Christ Church!

I am delighted that your search has brought you here. By looking through this website you will get a feeling for our worship services, our service ministries and our educational opportunities. But even the best website is limited in conveying the life of an active parish like Christ Church.

We invite you to visit and worship with us. It’s the best way to get to know us. Please come as you are and you will find warm and friendly people happy to receive you. We value your presence and look forward to meeting you.

We are a joyful and inclusive community. Everyone will find a place here and your gifts will be welcomed. I look forward to meeting you soon. Until then, may the God that loves you so much be ever present in your life.

Blessings, Fr Jim
