Hello and welcome to our church. We were founded in April 1838 and are one of the oldest Episcopal Churches in the state of Illinois. Christ Episcopal church is a church rich with history - a shared history with each other. We are there for each other in celebration and sorrow. We respect and revel in the fact that we are all different members of the body of Christ with various skills, strengths, and talents. We have suffered great adversity as a church. In May of 2017 the church sustained major damage from a fire. After extensive renovations, the church was rededicated by Bishop Lee on September 29, 2018. We are optimistic and hopeful for our future. We are more than a small midwestern church, we are a family.
