We human beings are created to be in relationship. We believe that God wants a relationship with each and every one of us. That connection to God is nurtured through prayer, worship, formation, Bible study, and fellowship. St. Christopher's offers opportunities to grow in relationship to God, to each other, and ourselves by connecting with others. You need not be a member of St. Christopher's to participate in these opportunities for learning and growth.
