We are an evangelical church in Ithaca, NY, with a Bible-centered ministry in an intergenerational, international, intentional context. As you settle into a new town, new school, and new rhythms of life, Christ Chapel is eager to invite you to worship with us during your years in Ithaca.

Sunday Worship

Our building at 160 Graham Road is easily accessible via TCAT bus, and parking is available on site.

We gather at 10:30 AM for worship. Following worship, all are invited downstairs for refreshments. Bible study and children’s Sunday school are offered at 9:15 AM.

Dress as you are comfortable. A typical service features several choral selections, congregational singing, responsive reading, announcements, prayer, offertory, and expository preaching. We begin promptly at 10:30 AM, and finish between 11:30–11:45 AM.

Life at Christ Chapel

Beyond Sundays, a small number of intergenerational activities make up our rhythms. Women’s breakfasts are held the first Saturday of the month. Men’s breakfasts are held the second Saturday of the month. Life groups are beginning to meet in homes around Ithaca. A weekly prayer meeting on Cornell’s campus will begin in September.

As a church, we are eager to serve one another. Some opportunities include singing in the choir (which rehearses every Thursday), teaching children’s Sunday school, helping with children in the nursery, or providing food for fellowship hour once a month as part of a snack team. We are also active with housing and food ministries in the area, and would love to have you come alongside!

Mentoring & Individual Discipleship

We want to maximize our intergenerationality to serve you during your time in Ithaca. If you would like to meet weekly or bi-weekly with an older man or women who can disciple you, we would like to make that available to you. Please contact Ben Hutton (benhutton@gmail.com), who can help set things up for you.
