At Christ United Methodist Church, we strive to be the friendliest, loving, and caring congregation in all of southwest Florida. If you are planning your first visit to our church, here are the basics you need to know.

Worship Services

Christ Church has three Sunday worship services. We offer traditional worship services every Sunday at 7:30am and 11:00am, in our formal sanctuary. A more relaxed contemporary service is held at 9:00am each Sunday as well. If you are new, try any of our services to find the best fit for you and your family.  We have shuttle carts to assist in the parking lot for the 11:00am service.

Child Care

We have child care and programming available for children in our Family Life Center.  Nursery care is also available as well.  Children are also invited to stay with the parents in any of our worship services.  A representative at our welcome center will be pleased to help.

Sunday School

Christ Church offers a wide variety of Sunday School classes each Sunday at 9:00am (adults) and 10:00am (adults and children), allowing you to attend the worship service of your choice.
