Our Story

On April 2, 2006, Braeburn Presbyterian Church and Bellaire Presbyterian Church joyfully became one congregation. ChristChurch Presbyterian was born out of a love and commitment to serving God's people in our community and beyond. With joy and thanksgiving, we celebrate the new thing that God has done and is doing in the life and mission of our church!
