120 N. Military,
Dearborn, MI 48124
Sunday Worship 8am and 10am -
in-person worship, Zoom, and Facebook.
We feed people in mind, body, and spirit through prayer, music, and opportunities to learn about the diversity in our Dearborn community. We believe that we are called by God to dismantle systemic oppression, and that work begins with each person individually. We believe that our diversity reveals the expansive nature of God's self. This revelation calls us to acts of justice informed by our faith in the teachings of Jesus. We aim to live this out in all of our relationships, but especially through the Partnership in Faith with Christ Church and Mother of the Savior, between English speaking and Arabic speaking Christian congregations and our investment in building bridges with our Muslim sisters and brothers.
Christ Church is a moderately diverse faith community, reflecting our metro Detroit location. We, along with the city of Dearborn, seek to overcome our racist history. We hold racial diversity as a value in this parish and strive to be welcoming and inclusive to all people. People of color serve in all areas of parish leadership, from Vestry to Sunday morning worship. We also recognize, as a predominantly white community, that racism exists within us, often in ways we do not see. We actively work to recognize how we, unintentionally, participate in the systemic and institutionalized racism in this country and try to dismantle how it manifests in parish life. Our current Rector, Terri Pilarski, engages the parish in discussions on race during the sermon time on Sunday morning. We also hold, from time to time, forums on racism and diversity awareness training. We're far from perfect, but we are trying to be kind of Christian that Jesus calls us to be, loving our neighbor as ourselves, recognizing that we are all one in God's eyes.
