Mid-Sized Communities

Throughout the week, Christ Church creates space for mid-size communities to gather together to deepen their relationship with Christ and encourage one another in their faith. Enjoy a large-group teaching time and in-depth, small group discussions. We hope you’ll feel welcomed, inspired and excited to get to know others that are striving to grow closer to Christ!

    Christ Church MOPS believes in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. We rally women to help them become more brave, kind and honest by providing a safe and loving community to journey through motherhood. We know that mothering can be challenging at times, and so MOPS is here to create a space where moms can be themselves.

    Our specialty is serving moms. Whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here.

    We begin meetings with a delicious spread of food to choose from and a time to chat with new and old friends. We enjoy listening to a speaker and finish our meeting by discussing the topic around our tables.

    Free childcare is given to children from infants to kindergarten through our MOPS Kids program. Mothers can relax and enjoy our meetings knowing the MOPS Kids program is caring for their children in the best possible way. The quality care, fun lessons and biblical teaching that MOPS Kids offers helps moms get the most out of their time in the meeting.

    All over the country, PhilanthroCorp has been helping families with their will and estate planning needs for more than 20 years. Our church has engaged PhilanthroCorp to provide their consultation services to you as a gift without cost or obligation. Your investment is only the attorney charges to draft your legal document. If you don’t have an attorney, PhilanthroCorp can refer you to one in your area that will draft your documents for a reduced rate - saving you hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars, depending upon your estate’s complexity. They provide an easy step-by-step process to implement a customized plan that reflects your values and produces great peace of mind. Details of your estate remain confidential. And best of all, this can be done over the phone from the comfort and convenience of your own home!
