We Are About Relationships

Relationship Files

As a church, we are about relationships…with Christ, with one another, and with God’s hurting world. We have developed the Relationship Files to focus on these relationships in the lives of some of our members. As you explore them, we hope you will get a better idea of who we as a church, get to know some of our members, and be encouraged and inspired by them.

We want to share YOUR story! Email us or download the Christ UMC Relationship Files Questionnaire to participate.
