Christ Episcopal Church welcomes you, no matter where you are on your journey.
Christ Episcopal Church is an affirming and inclusive Christian community. Our members and leaders strive through love, worship and service to welcome all people just as God created them. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, our welcome knows no boundaries of age, race, ethnicity, culture, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, or economic condition. We believe that God delights in the diversity of creation and so do we.

The United Thank Offering (UTO) was founded in the early 1900s to support innovative mission and ministry through The Episcopal Church. Another goal was to deepen spiritual disciplines of gratitude among those who participate.
When we experience a moment of thankfulness, we can place a coin in a Blue Box. A birthday, an anniversary, the return to health, a new opportunity, a sudden insight, the birth of a child -- these are all occasions to give thanks. And seeing our Blue Box on the table where we eat is a reminder to offer a coin on each occasion of thanksgiving.
Funds from the Blue Boxes are received, counted, blessed, and sent to the diocesan UTO director, who, in turn, sends them to the national UTO office for distribution through grants.
When we offer the coin as a sign of thanks, we can say the following prayer:
Gracious God, source of all creation, all love, all true joy: accept, we pray, these outward signs of our profound and continuing thankfulness for all of life. Keep each of us ever thankful for all the blessings of joy and challenge that come our way. Bless those who will benefit from these gifts through the outreach of the United Thank Offering. This we ask through the One who is the greatest gift and blessing of all: Jesus Christ. Amen.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
