Christ’s Episcopal Church • Castle Rock, Colorado

Welcome to Christ’s Church:
A Place to Be Fully Alive

Join Us for Worship and Study

Whether you call it “the Eucharist,” or “the Mass,” or “Communion,” or simply “worship,” you’re welcome to join us as we celebrate the sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood. All are welcome at the Lord’s table. Here’s our weekly schedule:

A Safe Place, an Empowering Community

You go to a sanctuary when you feel a need to be safe, to be yourself, to discover who you really are. That’s because a sanctuary is a holy place, a sacred place of security and Fr Brian Blessing a Child during Eurcharist at Christ's Episcopal Church, Castle Roc, Colorado quiet. A true sanctuary, however, is more than just a building. It’s also an empowering community that provides shelter and protection, companion- ship and support. In short, a sanctuary is where you go to be, and become, fully alive.

Christ’s Episcopal Church is such a sanctuary — both a sacred place and an empowering community. The Sanctuary is a campus of buidlings on 4th Street between Cantril and Lewis Streets in historic, downtown Castle Rock, Colorado. The Sanctuary is also a coming together of loving, open, caring people in faithful Christian worship, community service, spiritual study, and joyful play.

You’ll find many ways to be fully alive on the pages of this website. The descriptions on the pages, however, are simply “fingers pointing at the moon” (to borrow a phrase from the Zen tradition). They invite you to come spend time with us, in whatever ways feel right for you.

The recent blog posts you see on this page will give you only a hint of what’s going on in this community. For a more complete picture, you’ll want to subscribe to our Fully Alive Blog. Likewise, the events listed on this page are just the tip of the iceberg. So please be sure to check out our full calendar of activities … and see when you’d like to come do something with us.

Advent Wreath Making @ Gathering Place
Dec 3 @ 9:15 am – 10:00 am

It has been a tradition the last couple of years that families make Advent wreaths the first Sunday in Advent. This year, December 3rd is the First Day of Advent! Last year we had a wonderful time making our own advent wreaths, and would love for you to join us this year on Sunday, December 3rd, starting at 9:15 AM in the Gathering Place! Education is again providing the materials for each household who would like to make an Advent Wreath. This is a fun activity during our regular Education Hour; there will be no Sunday school that day, so families can create the wreath together for their table at home. Each wreath will cost about $18.00 to make.

If you still have the frame you used last year, bring it with you! Your greens and four candles (three blue, one pink) will cost only $12. An entire wreath set, including a frame, greens and four candles (three blue, one pink) will cost $18.

Please call the office to reserve your wreath ASAP and be sure to let Ash know whether you need a wreath frame or not. You may also reserve your materials on the sign-up sheet in the Narthex, indicating what materials you’d like to order.

Sign ups have a deadline of November 22nd so we can order all necessary supplies in time for the wreath making on December 3rd.
