We Are About Relationships
Christ United Methodist Church actively supports and participates in a wide variety of local, regional, national and international outreach ministries. Some are ministries of our church (designated by *) while others are outside agencies. We encourage our congregation to find a place where they can share their gifts and talents with others and live out of our identity as a church who builds relationships with God’s hurting world.
