Christ Church is a forward-looking congregation that values and honors its long history while also looking to see what God is doing next.
We are a diverse group. We are young families with children. We are retirees with children long grown. We are teenagers and singles. We come from the Bronx, New Rochelle and Mount Vernon, as well as from Pelham. We come from a range of economic, social, racial and ethnic groups. We are life-long Episcopalians. We are Anglicans from other countries. We are former Roman Catholics and Protestants. We are people with little Church background and we are people who have been active in the Church all our lives.
Similar to other Christian Churches, we are called to follow the Summary of the Law given by our Lord Jesus Christ. That means that we are to love the Lord our God with all our strength and our neighbors as ourselves. We are to worship and to forge a genuine, welcoming and accepting community in the process. We are always striving towards that end, and that means there is always a place for you in our midst. As we constantly invite new people into our fellowship we are fulfilling our Lord’s Great Commission to the early Church: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).
One thing we all have in common: somehow God has spoken to us in this place. We have found a home and we have experienced genuine community here. We are convinced there is a place here for you, as well. Come and see!
