Chancel Drama


Christ Church encourages congregational participation and the creative interpretation of our spirituality. One of the dynamic ways we express and nurture our faith is with our monthly Chancel Drama. The plays are dramatic, comedic, whimsical and provocative but always reflective of that Sunday's scriptural readings. Over the eight years of presentations, roughly a third of our adults and children have participated.

In chancel dramas this year we experienced the anguish of Woodrow Wilson's lost chance for world peace, the hope of Martin Luther King's dream, the plight of the women who witnessed the empty tomb, the humor that the blind see more than the sighted...among other stories.

Recently the New York Diocese recognized the Chancel Dramas at Christ Church and featured them in an Episcopal New Yorker article.

Clothing Closet

Inspired by a need from the community and a closet in need of renovation - we now have The Clothing Closet, which each month fills racks with clothes that have been hidden in the closet waiting to be sold. Each Friday we take in newly donated clothes and sort, label and hang them ready for sale at the next month's sale. We have a lot of fun folding and preparing the clothes and are getting to know our 'regulars' who come each month to look for clothes.

Altar Guild

Contact: Trish Weyenberg or Lita Porter

The Altar Guild is a gift of time and dedication for those who serve. There is a sense of humility in preparing God’s House with all things necessary for the celebration of the Eucharist. There is a sense of respect, joy, and belonging when preparing for other sacraments including weddings, baptisms, funerals or any special occasion services. The care of the sanctuary is done with devotion, dignity and pride. Every act of service holds a special meaning for each Altar Guild member.


The choir leads our parish in song as well as performing more challenging solos during the service and special programs on Christmas, Easter and other major festivals.
