Christ United Methodist Church was established in 1963, and soon began building a worship center, offices, and meeting rooms to serve the Cedar Mill community.
The congregation developed a strong education program, prompting the need for a building to accommodate a growing Sunday School, and to provide a kindergarten and preschool for the area.
Through the years the church grew in numbers, programs and outreach ministries. By the mid-1980′s it became clear the congregation had outgrown the existing space and plans were developed for a new kitchen, offices, and rooms. Continued growth required us to begin conducting worship services in our worship center (Memorial Hall) on a regular basis.
In order to support the growing children, youth, and family ministries, an additional education building was constructed and opened in the fall of 1994. We have become a regional church, serving the people in the surrounding communities with a wide variety of programs and opportunities for fellowship and outreach ministry.
