We live out Christ Church’s desire to seek and serve Jesus Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves, and respecting the dignity of every human being. Congregational Care provides opportunities for Christ Church members to give and receive care, support and information as they experience the challenges life brings.
Life is full of challenges. Christ Church offers groups and courses that provide Christian approaches to dealing with some of life’s most difficult moments.

DivorceCare is a scripturally based 13-week course and support group that will help you heal from the hurt. It is a warm, caring environment led by people who understand what you are going through. Each session is self-contained, with a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce recovery subjects, followed by group discussion of that week’s topic and what is going on in the lives of group members.
Note that DivorceCare meets in a parishioner home in McKinney.
At Christ Church, we strive to deliver the type of care that our Lord Jesus Christ would have us give: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” (Matthew 25:35-36)
When people are unable to come to church, a licensed Lay Eucharistic Minister will bring church to them. Whether in hospitals, nursing homes, or private homes, we bring Holy Communion to anyone who requests it.
The Liturgical Prayer Ministry offers individuals with special needs the opportunity to be prayed for during our worship services and allows those gifted in prayer to use their gift.
Dialing the Prayer Chain at 972-491-PRAY (7729) allows you to record a request. A Prayer Minister will listen to the message and activate the chain. All calls to the Prayer Chain are confidential. If you would like to be called back, you may indicate that and leave your name and number. The Prayer Minister will return your call as soon as possible.
