About Us...


You will find that Christ Presbyterian is made up of people of all ages; people who participate in some or most all of the activities depending on time available or interest.  No matter what your stage of life or circumstances, there is always something going on each can connect with and a lot to satisfy the needs of all.

Several years ago we became aware of a growing need to expand our Sunday School facilities to adequately accommodate the growing number of children and youth in our midst.  Last year a bold decision in faith was made to add a new education wing to better serve those who wish to learn and grow in knowledge of His word.  We're proud to offer classes for each grade level, youth, and adults and even have a nursery with a paid, professionally trained staff member.  Not all learning and growing is in the classroom, either.  Many of our youth, for example, have for several years now traveled to Mexico in the summer for a week in a program where they physically work to build adequate homes for those without a humane place to live.

We know that the church is not a building -- it is the people who worship and try their best to serve Him.  We have about 100 members at present, and you will find we are very friendly and family oriented.  We love kids!  Visitors are greeted with a warm friendly smile and sincere welcome.  We truly want all to feel comfortable and at ease in worship or in anything else that we do.   It's a place where some like to wear ties or dresses and some wear jeans, but all 'fit in.'   It is a "Home for your Heart" -- a shelter from the all too often unfriendly world, a place where we tend to comfort and help each other in time of sorrow or need, and a place where we rejoice at the many blessings God has bestowed upon us.

You are invited to try us out by participating in some or all of what we have to offer.  We hope we can become a home for YOUR heart!

 

How to Get Here

 

Brief History of Christ Presbyterian Church


Christ Presbyterian Church was founded in January of 1959 after the Board of Church Extension and the trustees of Cincinnati Presbytery purchased six acres of land and a house at the corner of St. Rt. 131 and Pleasant View Dr. in the suburb of Day Heights, east of Milford.  Twenty interested people responded to newspaper articles and gathered for the first meeting.  At this meeting a steering committee was formed to move forward in organizing a church.  On February 1, 1959 a fellowship dinner was held and two weeks later the first service of worship was held.  The church was named Christ United Presbyterian church and was officially organized on April 12, 1959.  The young congregation was led in worship by Rev. Stanley Boughton, the then equivalent to General Presbyter of the Presbytery. .  In October of 1959, the first pastor, Rev. W.E. Morris was called.  One year later, ground was broken for the present structure.  The new building was dedicated on June 4, 1961. 

In 1983, after the reunification of the Presbyterian Church U.S. and the United Presbyterian Church U.S.A., Christ United Presbyterian Church name was changed to Christ Presbyterian Church. 

The Rev. Jean Holmes ended her ministry with us on July 1, 2006 and is now honorably retired.  The Rev. Gary Brose served as pastor from July 15, 2006 to August 31, 2009.  During his tenure, he led the congregation through a transformational study that resulted in the creation of several small groups of various interests.  He left Christ PC in order to become a full-time chaplain for a local hospice.  On April 15, 2010, the Reverend Chris White became our new - and current - pastor. A native of Clermont County, "Pastor Chris" is happy to have found a "home for her heart" at Christ PC.  She recently celebrated her tenth year anniversary of being a minister and was honored to receive the "First Decade Award" from her alma mater, the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Together, we at Christ PC look forward to living into the future God has planned for us!
