WHAT TO EXPECT
At Christ Church we are a people EMBRACING our need for Jesus, DELIGHTING in Him, and JOINING in His work of redemption so that all things reflect the goodness, truth, and beauty of our triune God.
We are located at 114 Watterson Parkway, in Trussville, Alabama.
Additional parking is provided at J.R. Millington's dentist office in front of the property and across Watterson Parkway at Nelm's Pharmacy.
Where do we meet for worship?
At Christ Church there are people who are mature in their faith, people who are young in their faith, and people who are wondering what faith is. You should know that however you describe your faith, you are welcome here. Also, you should know that we have a simple approach to ministry. We are focused on proclaiming the Gospel message, while worshiping and living together in light of the Gospel as a community of people connecting in Jesus.
Our Sunday morning consists of two worship services, one at 8:00 and the other at 10:45.
We have Sunday school for all ages beginning at 9:30, and immediately following that is a time for fellowship among believers from 10:15-10:45.
Nursery services are provided for children ages birth to three years old. Additionally, during the second worship time, Children's church is provided for those aged 4-1st grade.
On a typical Sunday morning in the Children's Ministry, we offer nursery for children ages birth-3 years old during both services, Sunday school, and fellowship time. For older children, we offer Sunday School for school-aged children (K4-5th grade). During the second service only, Children's Church is offered for children ages 4 years old through 1st grade.
Children's Church is designed for children who are not quite ready to sit through the entire worship service. They begin the worship service with the church family, but will leave the during the sermon. Our goal of Children's Church is to prepare the children to worship with the body of Christ and to learn how to listen to the preached Word. We do this by singing songs based directly from Scripture, and by hearing an abridged version of the same sermon the parents hear.
Then, throughout the year, we will hold special events for the children and the community. There is a Christmas Celebration, Children's Choir at the Christmas Eve Service, an Easter Celebration, and VBS in the summertime.
The average week for a Christ Church Youth begins with youth Sunday School and congregational worship. We have separate Sunday school classes for the middle and high school students, both of which meet at 9:30 am. Then on Sunday afternoons, our youth meet at the church for a time of worship, fellowship, and teaching followed by small groups. Throughout the week, students meet with staff and volunteers for one-on-one discipleship and small group Bible studies. Our goal in each of these venues, whether it be large group, small group, or one-on-one, is to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve His Kingdom.
In addition to our regular weekly ministry, the Christ Church Youth will join other youth for camp and various retreat opportunities throughout the year. Many of these opportunities are connected to our participation with Reformed Youth Ministries.
This is something we certainly do not want people to stress about in their preparation for Sunday morning worship. You will see men wearing jeans or slacks, polos, button-downs, or a jacket. You will see the ladies wearing skirts, pants, jeans or dresses. Depending on the weather, or your mood - please come as you are!
