Home / Welcome
Sunday School at both 8:15 and 11 each week.
Our mission is to be a welcoming, diverse, thankful, and joyous Episcopal community of faith committed to nurturing its members and neighbors through worship and service. Please join us.
Christ Church is a vibrant congregation of about 250 members located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Our members come from diverse religious backgrounds, which is reflected in our worship and music. We are an Episcopal church that explores the breadth of our liturgical tradition through our worship.
We celebrate the Eucharist at both Sunday services. The early service at 8:15 am is a quiet and contemplative, spoken service with no music, followed by breakfast. Child care and Sunday school are offered during the 8:15 am service. Fifteen minutes before the 11:00 am service we ring our bell, letting neighbors know it is time to put down the newspaper and come to church! The later service includes music led by our wonderful choir.
In addition to singing in the choir, members serve as greeters, they read scripture and lead prayers, bring bread and wine, arrange flowers, and assist with leading and preparing for worship. Children may participate as acolytes and occasionally read lessons, lead prayers and serve as greeters. While it is possible to sit quietly in the pew, everyone is encouraged to participate in worship.
We are handicap accessible through the back entrance.
If you attend regularly, you will experience variety in our worship — whether it is the use of different prayers, different genres of music or changes to the church interior. But there will never be a doubt that you are joining an Episcopal worship service. Attire is as varied as the congregation. Some dress up. Others wear jeans. All are welcome.
Some highlights of our worship throughout the year include:
We value high-quality preaching at Christ Church. Our members like to read or listen to sermons when they miss church on Sunday. Lay preaching also is a valued tradition at Christ Church. You may read or listen to many recent sermons.
Weddings - if you like to hold your wedding at historic Christ Church, we would be happy to work with you. Members and non-members alike may utilize the church for weddings. Please call our office to set up an appointment or for more information.
