St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church Welcomes You!

“They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of the bread and the prayers.”  Acts 2:42

St. Christopher’s is a parish of the Episcopal Church of Western Michigan, a member of the Worldwide Anglican Communion, and the only year-round Episcopal Parish in Leelanau County.  We invite you to join us. People of all faiths at all stages of their spiritual journeys are welcome here.

St. Christopher’s welcomes the Reverend Doctor Christine Ann Timm as our new rector.  Beginning February 1, 2020, Reverend Timm (Chrysanne), an ordained E.L.C.A. minister, will be sharing her time between St. Christopher’s and Bethany Lutheran Church in Northport.  Initially, Pastor Timm will celebrate one Sunday Eucharist Service per month at St. Christopher’s and be responsible for our ministries of Pastoral Care, Outreach and Growth, and Adult Education.  In the months to come, the number of Sunday Eucharist Services Reverend Timm celebrates at St. Christopher’s will increase.

The Reverend Doctor Thomas Guback, who has served us so valiantly and generously as St. Christopher’s Supply Priest-in-Charge during our search for a new minister, will continue to celebrate Sunday Eucharist and Holy Week Services for us as requested and scheduled by our Vestry.

We are grateful and blessed to have Reverend Timm join us and continue to be grateful to Father Guback for his service to our parish.

We also thank Ed Ruffley for his diligent work as Chair of our Rector Search Committee.

 February Services at St. Christopher’s:

Father Guback will be our celebrant on February 2, 9, and 23, 2020.  

Pastor Timm will celebrate our Eucharist Service on February 16, 2020.

Following our regular Sunday Services, everyone is welcome to join the St. Christopher’s family for coffee, treats, and conversation in the Parish Hall.  

Please join us for meaningful worship and warm fellowship!
