Service & Coffee Hour
Sundays at 10am.
Coffee Hour and Conversation in the Parish Hall immediately follows our worship service. An extension of the warm and loving hospitality one finds during the service, our Coffee Hour is a favorite time to gather and catch up with each other and a wonderful opportunity to meet and greet and welcome newcomers.
Adults seeking baptism and parents wishing to have their children baptized must attend a one session class on Baptism. The class focuses on the theology, history and liturgy of the sacrament. Classes are held within two weeks of each scheduled baptism, as arranged with the Rector.
Christ comes to us bringing good news of God’s grace. God summons us to be in communion with Him through hearing and responding to Holy Scripture and by sharing in the sacred mystery of the consecrated bread and wine.
We make an adult profession of faith by publicly taking on our Baptismal Covenant and by sharing in the Pascal mystery of the consecrated bread and wine. Confirmation classes are usually held as part of our Adult Lenten Bible Study.
The clergy of the parish are happy to discuss and plan Christian Burial with anyone who desires such, whether they are a longtime parishioner or not.
At St Christopher’s By the Sea we believe in the power of prayer. Please let us know how can we pray with you and support you with our prayers
At St. Christopher’s, we marry any two people who wish to be married in a Christian service. Clergy are required to conduct pre-marital counseling with the couple well in advance of the marriage.
