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.
In January 2011 the Vestry (governing board) of Christ Church passed a resolution defining Christ Church as an intentionally "Open, Welcoming, and Affirming" community of faith. This resolution reflected two years of discussions the parish held during its interim time 2009-2011 in which members of the parish articulated the core values of this church.
Not every member of the parish was prepared for this resolution and some have struggled with it. However most people in the parish affirm the teachings of Jesus to "love your neighbor as your self" and to embrace all people as equal in God's eyes. The parish includes single and partnered LGBTQ persons as members, some of whom serve in leadership roles. This is one of the areas in which this parish is growing in maturity and faith, seeking to deepen our relationships with all people, and be a faith community for every one who is seeking to know God more fully in their lives.
The Rector (priest) and Vestry, along with Bishop Gibbs, celebrate marriage equality. We have performed same gendered blessings since 2011 and same gendered marriages since 2015.
