Pastor Steve

Christ’s Church

is a congregation with roots both in the United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church United.   We are a community of followers of Jesus Christ who strive to grow together in discipleship of Jesus and who go to serve in the community to extend Christ’s ministry of love, grace, hope, peace and justice.  Our worship contains both traditional elements of worship as well as new expressions of faith through song, liturgy, and the possibilities of the electronic age.  

We welcome all people to join us in this challenging and exciting journey of discipleship and service!
