CCEOanimatChurch of the Epiphany and Christ Church 

Established as a congregation in 1868, Christ Church is a place of uplifting worship and music, Gospel-focused preaching and teaching, and community activity and involvement.  Founded as a church for black people in 1905 when few other Episcopal churches welcomed them, Church of the Epiphany has a long and storied history as a place of welcome and center for community involvement. Come walk the path with us as together we seek to follow Jesus day by day.
