Welcome to St. Christopher's Church!
St. Christopher’s in Springfield, VA is a parish made up of a Christ-centered community where all persons, from all walks of life, and varying faith experiences are welcome. Here we continually discover ways in our personal and corporate lives to understand how Christ is calling us forth into the world to be his hands, feet, and heart in service others. In this way we carry on God’s story as begun in scripture, continuing that with our lives.
For newcomers – the people who gather and worship at St. Christopher’s are just like you. Come and see what our worship is like; receive our hospitality, and witness how God guides us here. I am confident that you will experience the love of Christ among us, and feel included in that. Wherever your personal adventure has brought you, you are welcome here.
The Reverend Peter K. Ackerman
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: July 8 – 12, 2013
Hogwarts is coming to St. Christopher's!
Registration Form: 2013_VBS_Register.pdf
St. Christopher’s will be holding an Intergenerational Vacation Bible School on July 8-12 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. This year’s theme is Wizards and Wonders!

Volunteers are still needed-- both for characters during the week and for other positions. Registration forms are available in the church and the church office.
