Senior Adult Ministries
The people at Christ Church believe that Christians can be active and productive for their entire lives. There is wisdom and joy to be gained with each passing year. We provide fellowship, fun, spiritual growth and personal enrichment for seniors. Non-members and friends in the community who are interested in our programs are always welcome. The common thread throughout our senior adult programs is the abundance of Christ’s love that is shared.
We have lots of fun! Click here for more pictures.

Christ Church Workshop
Did you know we have a sewing and quilting group that meets each Tuesday from 9:30 am to 2 pm in Room 154. Do you need a quilt finished, pants hemmed or simple alternations? All profits are distributed between the Kentucky Methodist Children's Homes, Portland Promise Center, Wesley Manor Retirement Community and the Open Door Ministry at Fourth Avenue United Methodist. Bring in your projects and meet us on Tuesdays. We always welcome new members, so come, bring a sandwich and join in the fun and fellowship. For more information contact email@example.com.
