We are unique!

We probably never should have happened. But here we are joining two separate church communities into one and enjoying every minute of it.  Properties were sold and properties demolished but our soul remains strong. The people of Christ Church are here because we want to be a part of the “New Thing” that God has created in our midst. We are committed to outreach.  Our goal is not to amass wealth, but to use the resources we have to build our spiritual base and support those less fortunate.

Food pantries… Back packs…Christmas with Santa are just a few of our projects. Studies in Scripture, Quiet retreats and opportunities for fellowship come together to help give meaning to our Sunday  Liturgy. There are not any red carpets in our newly consecrated church building, just a stone floor ready to accommodate the wheel chairs and walkers for the disabled.

The Good Shepherd window is the focal point of our worship area. We are a community where in the words of J.S. Bach, “Sheep May Safely Graze”.  Come in and See.

Father Critelli

"As the deer longs for the water-brooks, 
So longs my soul for you, O God. 
My soul is athirst for God, 
Athirst for the living God..."
Psalm 42 

The birth of a child is a joyous event, a literal gift from heaven above to earth below.  Yet as wondrous as this birth is, there is a bittersweet knowledge that arrives with that child.  This new little person who is welcomed with loving arms has been separated from the Source of her being, from the Heart in which she rested and was called by name through all eternity.  It will be her life-long thirst to be intimate with that Source, that Heart wherein she finds her only true home.

We thirst for intimacy with our God.  It is as necessary for us as breathing, and yet our twenty-first century lives leave little room for quiet and solitude.  For many of us, our Sunday liturgy is wonderful, but wonderfully busy!!!  Where is the space, the quiet necessary to meet God?  
That space ,that "holy Ground", has to be deliberately carved out.  Are you interested in joining with others who are "...athirst for the living God..."?  Do you seek to enrich your prayer life and your relationship with God? Is there a yearning for more intimacy with God? 
If you are intersted in exploring a Prayer and Study group the first meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 16th 2015 at Christ Church.  Thereafter we will meet the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 5:30pm to 7:30pm,  We will be using two books which will be provided for you. Please let Vicki know at 856-770-8500 so she can have enough books available!  
May each of us have the grace to follow the Spirit's promptings.
