Weddings

The celebration and blessing of a marriage at Christ Episcopal Church is a sacred and holy event which solemnizes the union of two people. It is a time that should be remembered by the couple and all those attending as an event in which God was present and participating in the union. In order to accomplish this, the ceremony needs to be a sacred rite, leaving the secular side of the celebration for the reception. If you are interested in learning more about being married in the church, please contact our office and ask to speak with a member of our clergy.

Baptisms

Celebrating the sacrament of Holy Baptism at Christ Episcopal Church is an especially wonderful community event. All baptisms are celebrated on Sunday’s, primarily at our 10:00AM service of Holy Eucharist. Because the sacrament of Holy Baptism is considered a full initiation into the life of the Church, it is appropriate that those about to be baptized, their families and sponsors are surrounded and supported by this vibrant community of faith. If you would like to learn more about baptism or if you would like to be baptized at Christ Episcopal Church, please contact our office and ask to speak with a member of the clergy.

Memorial Services

The celebration of a loved one’s life is an important way to not only give thanks to God for the gift of a loved one, but a memorial service is a way to pay tribute to the loved one that so impacted our lives. The celebration of one’s life should be crafted to reflect the person’s wishes and to fulfill the family’s desire to honor their loved one. If you would like to schedule a memorial service at Christ Episcopal Church, please contact our office and ask to speak to a clergy person.
