What to Expect

Who We Are

Christus Rex is a place where you can bring your questions, bring your WHOLE self and know that you are loved, just as you are. No exceptions.

Whether you have gone to church since you were a child, or you are questioning everything. No matter who you are or what you have done, Christus Rex clings to God's promise of grace for all people.

Christus Rex is a Reconciling in Christ Community who makes a commitment to welcome, include and celebrate all LGBTQIA+ people.

Worship

Christus Rex is a campus church with a worship that is encouraging, uplifting and challenging. The messages are relevant and students are always a part of worship leadership. Come and meet our Campus Pastor and Campus Minister and the people call this their church on campus.  Check out the choir too.

Come as you are! Even if you think you don't fit in at church, check us out. This is a church that welcomes everyone - no exceptions, no fine print, just open and inviting. Come and see for yourself why students have been calling Christus Rex their home away from home for 75 years.

Food

We believe in the beauty of sharing a meal together. Every Friday (12-1pm) we offer Free Lunch  -- homecooked meals sponsored by area congregations is just like a taste of home! Stop by and warm up with a free cup of coffee, tea or hot cocoa that's always hot and ready for you. Look for other opportunities during the week to share in conversation and meals. Christus Rex is a place that feeds people's bodies, minds, and spirits.

Service

Christus Rex is a community that takes seriously our call to do justice, love kindness and walk humbly (Micah 6:8) as people of faith. Every month we have many opportunities to join us in service projects - from serving at the food pantry, serving a meal at the Mission, to playing games with residents at Edgewood Vista... join us!
