What do you think about our new 10:30AM start time?:

Christ Church Certified as a Welcoming Congregation!

Over the summer the GROW Committee completed the Welcoming Congregation application with examples of the various things we do to welcome new comers. Our District Superintendent Orlando Chaffee reviewed the materials at Charge Conference and we submitted our materials.

We received word that we have been certified as a Welcoming Congregation! This means that we're just one of 21 congregations in the state of Ohio, 3 in Cuyahoga County and the only United Methodist congregation in Cleveland to be certified. There are only 936 Certified Welcoming Congregations out of 34,892 congregations in the US - that's just 2.7%!

The certification is noted on the Find A Church website (http://archives.umc.org/Directory/ChurchDetails.asp?FAC=57818&strLong=-81.78774&strLat=41.4549) and we be received a plaque to display to let everyone know that we bend over backwards to welcome people to our congregation.

The Welcoming Congregation certification also means that we can apply for certain grants such as the Impact Community grant that can help pay for advertising, event planning resources and specific training for our congregation.

Congratulations and thanks for your continued support of the GROW program.
