Christ Church was daughtered from Second Reformed Presbyterian Church of Indianapolis. The congregation started with a small group of seed families from Second RPC, meeting for Bible studies and eventually evening worship services at various locations in the Avon area. As the core group slowly grew, the forming congregation called a pastor and was organized in October, 2006. Since 2008, the congregation has met at its present location in Brownsburg, although our members travel from Zionsville, Avon, Danville, and Indianapolis as well.
As part of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, this congregation is overseen by the RPCNA synod and this region’s presbytery. The local congregational leadership include a board of elders (the "session") and a deacon board.
