We're so glad you're here!

Christ UMC has been worshipping with the people of Rockford since 1956. Since then, we've grown an array of ministries for children, youth, adults, and families to gather, grow, and go together to love and serve Jesus Christ, our community, and the world beyond.

Worship With Us

Whether you're new to the Rockford community or just searching for a church home, we would love to meet you at one of our Sunday worship services. Pick a service time that works best for you and come introduce yourself, or tune in online to see what a service at Christ UMC is like.

We hope to see you soon!
