WHAT TO WEAR
There is no standard dress code at Christ Church. Our regular crowds dress casually so you may wear what you want and what you’re comfortable in.
We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The only prerequisite to take Communion at Christ Church is that you know and love the Lord Jesus Christ; if Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior, you are welcome to partake of the bread and wine. You do not need to be a member of Christ Church or even a regular attender… you are welcome!
Gluten-free elements are available.

What We Believe
Christ Church at Grove Farm is an evangelical non-denominational church with roots in the Anglican Tradition. Our Anglican Roots are demonstrated in a number of ways, but perhaps the most significant is our use of the 39 Articles as our statement of faith. We also utilize the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed which are consistent with Anglican beliefs, but also anchors us with the historic and world-wide fellowship of believers.
Our pastors, administrators, and lay staff seek to emulate Christ’s example of servant leadership. While each has taken a different path to Christ Church, they hold one thing in common: a passion for serving others.
Are you looking for your next step at Christ Church? If so, we invite you to Next Step, an informal gathering where you can meet Pastors Craig and Mike, share your story, hear theirs and the story of Christ Church. Next Step happens once a month at 10:00 am in the Farmhouse Great Room. For dates and more info, click the button below.
