Welcome to Christ Episcopal Church!
All are welcome.
Children and Youth
Our church nursery is open from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm on Sunday. If you’d like your child return to the church for communion, please let the childcare staff know.
On the first Sunday of the month all ages are in worship together. On nearly every other Sunday there is Sunday School for children and youth at 10 am upstairs in the Education Building. Children join their families in worship during the offertory. Ask an usher or someone else who looks like they know what they’re doing for directions to the Sunday school.
Your kids are welcome in church for the whole service if you’d prefer for them to sit with you. There are worship bags available for children which include a worship based activity book, crayons, and more. Ask the ushers where to find them and pick one up on your way in. There is a soft area near the back of the sanctuary where crawlers and restless ones can move around. We ask that you supervise your children while they are in this space. Please feel free to enter and exit the worship space as needed. If there is wondering or questions during the service soft voices and walking feet are appreciated.
Christ Church adheres to "Called to Right Relationship" which is the Diocese of California’s official policy on standards and behaviors to ensure that our congregations are safe places for all God's people. You can view the policy by clicking HERE.
Ash Wednesday Services on February 10
(with imposition of ashes and Holy Communion)
at 12 Noon and 7:00 pm
Evening Midweek Lenten Service - 6:30-7:30 PM, Thursdays 2/18, 2/25, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17 - Join us as we experiment with a midweek communion service through Lent. We'll follow the readings from Holy Women, Holy Men, looking to the example of good people who have proceeded us in a life of faith. We'll use our new sound system to play some recorded music to help set the tone. The series will include interactive reflection times.
Evening Lenten Scripture Workshop, Genesis - 7:30-9:00 PM, Thursdays 2/18, 2/25, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, Room 210 - Following the midweek service we’ll be exploring the first great book of the Bible, Genesis. We’ll start the workshop by exploring the context and influences behind the book, and then over four weeks we’ll read through it and discuss it, aided by a helpful commentary. This will be a good introduction to making sense of the ancient, mysterious texts that became our Bible.
At Christ Episcopal Church we believe God calls everyone into relationship. All are welcome here, so come as you are. Through God’s presence in the bread and wine of communion, in the Bible and the richness of our tradition, and through God’s presence in each other, we seek transformation. In turn, we go into the world to transform it by loving our neighbors, feeding those who hunger and advocating for justice.
