We Made it Because of Our Group

Jill & Brian Jay // Parishioner // DEVELOP RELATIONSHIP

Christ Church...Our hope, our help, our family!

In 1990, our home on Fair Avenue was severely damaged due to a flash flood of Duck Creek.  I was a regular member of another church at the time, but they told me they were too busy to even bring us a meal.  Doris and Russ Kruse, former Christ Church members, lived across the street and we saw they had lots of help from their church friends.

I didn't attend church much the following year and I was encouraged by several people to give Christ Church a try. In January of 1992, the kids and I started attending Church. Then Brian and I joined the 500 Card Club. Everyone was so friendly and we really felt comfortable here. Throughout the following years, Brian also became a regular attendee.

Our faith has grown tremendously through our attendance at Christ Church and by belonging to a church small group. When Brian went through serious health problems in 2007, Christ Church members were right there to help and support us. This support was just like I had witnessed in 1990 with the Kruses'. I don't know how we would have made it through without the prayers and support of our small group and all of our friends at Christ Church.
