Mission Work: Christ Church has been active in overseas mission work for many years most recently in San Jose, Costa Rica. We have supported the congregation of Church of the Ascension there both financially and with our own sweat equity by sending 6 different mission trips to help construct their new church. Our work there continues as we support them in the fundraising and future construction of an afterschool teen center.
