A Letter From Our Rector
Welcome to St. Christopher’s Church! A vibrant Christian community in the heart of Gladwyne, seeking to live into our mission To Lift People Up As Christ Calls. Using the Episcopal belief that scripture and Spirit apply to our modern life, this beautiful tradition asks each to use their reason and intellect to explore faith. Worship, community, service, individual and family support, intergenerational ministries, faith-filled education and so much more, all come together here!
If you are looking for a place where you can grow in love of God, service to this world, and gather strength for the living of daily life, then please come and worship with us! You truly belong here!
HOW MAY WE DIRECT YOU
Worship & Music
Worship of God is at the heart of every Christian community and St. Christopher’s is no different. We offer a variety of services for the worship of the Triune God on Sunday mornings at 8:00am and 10:00am (9:00am in the summer) and Wednesday mornings at 7:30am. We invite you to join us and offer your time and talents in worship.
Preschoolers learn through a play-based curriculum. Young children work hard at play, inventing scenes and stories, solving problems, and negotiating their way through social roadblocks. Because their motivation comes from within, they learn the powerful lesson of pursuing their own ideas to a successful conclusion.
Following our mission to Lift People Up As Christ Calls, the ministry of Pastoral Care is to provide help, care and comfort to our parishioners during challenging life circumstances in the hope of lightening the burden for an individual or family. The ministry will provide both practical and emotional support during times of need.
Children & Youth Ministries
Christian Education for children and youth is one of the most important ways we live into our mission as a church. We seek to provide a variety of ways for our children, youth and their families to grow in their faith and make a difference in the world.
Our mission is to live into the great commission by going and making disciples in Christ’s name. We hope to do that by inviting community members to come together in ways that foster growth to both their social and spiritual needs as followers of God.
We maintain an active Outreach program that is designed to improve the lives of disadvantaged people locally, nationally and throughout the world. In particular, we seek to use both cash grants and direct involvement to support organizations that empower the less fortunate to reach their full potential.
In 2015, St. Christopher’s Fellowship Committee was created, following the disciples example by combining the Activity and Hospitality Committees. The new committee is responsible for the planning and hosting of social activities throughout the year
Stewardship is the act of parishioners giving of their time, talent and treasure to the church to further its mission of To Lift People Up As Christ Calls in response to God’s abundant generosity. These acts should all be done with one purpose in mind – to the glory of God and to further our mission as a church.
