Christ Church, Eureka, begins 9 month celebration of church's 150th anniversary


Congratulations to Christ Church, Eureka, for 150 years of ministry and service! The church is celebrating their 150th anniversary for the next nine months with a number of special events.

Their first celebration event was on the Feast of the Cross, Sept. 15, but a few days prior to the service, the church experienced vandalism on the church property. The small fire at the church entrance "initially felt like a serious setback, but there is actually much reason to give thanks, since the damage could have been much, much worse," said the Rev. Dr. Daniel London.

In addition, Rev. Daniel said, "I am also thankful because I know we will bounce back from this stronger than ever and become ever more emboldened in our resolve to glorify God, follow Jesus Christ, and serve all people through the power of the Holy Spirit, as we begin our 150th year."

We are encouraged by Christ Church's ability to focus on moving forward and continuing their ministry. Read more about the resiliency and resolve with which Christ Church handled the incident here.
