Christ Epis­copal Con­gre­ga­tion was or­gan­ized in 1837 and a corner­stone for a church building was laid on May, 23 1838. The church over­looks Lake Erie across Lake Park. Over the years many struc­tur­al and cos­met­ic changes have been made. A steeple was erec­ted in 1876, fol­lowed by a bell in 1881. The bell still calls pa­rish­ion­ers to wor­ship on Sunday morn­ings.

A ma­jor renov­a­tion oc­curred in 1963. An ad­di­tion con­tain­ing class­rooms, kit­chen, fel­low­ship hall, of­fices, choir room, and meet­ing space was con­struc­ted. The sanc­tu­ary was mod­ern­ized and re­ori­ented to be entered from this new ad­di­tion, In 1975 a new­er steeple was erec­ted and a mod­ern im­pres­sion­ist­ic stained glass win­dow of the Liv­ing Christ was in­stalled be­hind the al­tar. The church taste­fully blends its his­tor­ic char­ac­ter with a con­tem­por­ary, up­lift­ing feel­ing.

In 1977 a chapel and colum­bari­um were ad­ded. In re­cent years the church was painted, the en­trance was made han­di­cap ac­cess­ible, a lib­rary was ad­ded, pew cush­ions and kneel­ers were in­stalled and the or­gan was ren­ov­ated. As one of the old­est churches in the state, Christ Church is on the Na­tion­al Re­gister of His­tor­ic Places.

Nine­teen rect­ors have served Christ Church. Long pas­tor­ates have marked their ten­ure. The Rev. Eu­gene Smer­cina, who re­tired in Oc­to­ber 2001, served for thirty-six years. In the early 80's, dur­ing his pas­tor­ate, the church life changed dra­mat­ic­ally with the Cursillo Move­ment. The par­ish moved from a more tra­di­tion­al to a more evan­gel­ic­al wor­ship, while main­tain­ing an in­clus­ive­ness that pro­motes di­verse wor­ship styles. 

The church has gone through many phases but re­mains a tra­di­tion­al Epis­copal church. We have cel­eb­rated 175 years and many mile­stones have oc­curred in­clud­ing nam­ing Rev. Smercina, Rect­or Emer­it­us.

Exit the Ohio Turnpike at Exit 118 and follow the signs toward Sandusky. You will be heading north on U.S. 250 and will go under a railroad overpass.

At the second traffic light, turn right onto Huron-Avery Road (a Gas Station is on the northeast corner).

When Huron-Avery Road ends after 5 miles, turn left onto State Route 13. You will cross RR tracks and be in the central business district. You will cross a intersection divided with a median. The median has a BP Station in the center and St. Peter Catholic Church on the northeast corner. Continue straight for two blocks, on your left you will past a bank and the fire station.
