Jan 29 @ 6:00 PM

Episcopal Campus Ministry (ECM) strives to offer deeper experiences in the faith journeys of college students through worship, fellowship, and vocational discernment. ECM is a lively place for mentoring the Christian formation of both seekers and those who grew up in Episcopal churches. At weekly ECM meetings, students are recognized, challenged, supported, inspired and engaged in honest dialogue around their faith in order to foster their potential. We provide a culture where students can imagine and explore new possibilities for ministry. These imagined possibilities are necessary for the continued vitality of the church and for God’s mission in the world. Through campus ministry, we equip students with the tools for facing the tough ethical, moral, religious, relational and ecological challenges of a complex world.

Youth Group
Jan 29 @ 6:00 PM

The youth program at Christ Church is very active within the parish and the diocese as a whole.  With annual camps, outreach involvement, and spiritual activities, the youth are able to show and spread the love of Jesus throughout the community. During the school year, Youth Group meets every Sunday at 9 a.m. for Sunday School, and every Wednesday night starting at 6:00 p.m. There is also a wide range of summer fun activities throughout the summer.
