Welcome to Christ Church!
The Rev. Andrew Van CulinAs the newly installed rector of Christ Church, I am delighted to be the newest member of this very special parish. There are so many great people who make up this parish family. I look forward to the good things that we will do together to further God's kingdom in Grosse Pointe and the community that surrounds us.

As you explore our site, I think you will find that at the heart of Christ Church is a desire to bring glory to God through dynamic worship services, challenging and formative educational opportunities, and amazing acts of service that touch the lives of those in the parish family and in the metro-Detroit area.

On behalf of all the members of Christ Church, I invite you to join us for one of our weekend worship services. You will find meaningful liturgy, relevant messages, and choral music second to none. I am confident that you will find yourself grateful for the warm hospitality and welcoming spirit that makes Christ Church such a remarkable place to worship and family-like community in which to participate. And when you visit, please take a moment to introduce yourself to me. I would be delighted to meet you in person.

With Gratitude,

The Rev. Andrew Van Culin
