Here's how you can get involved at Christ Place
In Worship
God loves you. We want you to feel that at Christ Place Church. We are a people called to make the love of Christ famous in a broken world. We are not perfect. We are simple people who gather weekly to love God, love others, and change our world.
In Groups
You can't do it alone. We all need friends. We need people to share in the joys, burdens, and adventures of life. We need relationships that go deeper than Sunday to impact every day. We offer environments for you to make these lifelong friendships.
In Ministry
You can change the world. That is the desire of our church family. Journey with us; explore the ways that you can partner with us to love on the hurting in our community. Together, we can make a difference to our neighbors and the nations.
