Expectations

We really cannot begin to give directions of “How To” at Christ Church without first explaining our expectations.  All of our worship and programs at Christ Church are offered to honor God, to bring individuals into a relationship with Him, and to graft them into this fellowship; so that together we will grow into mature, generous, and faithful Christian individuals, parents, husbands, wives, business associates, and citizens.
