Our congregational history as a church in Corpus Christi runs more than sixty years! We’re very proud of the work God has been able to do through us here, and in fact, we really love where we live! If you are new to the area, here is a little more information about Corpus Christi.
Corpus Christi facts
According to the 2010 Census, the Population of Corpus Christi was a little over 305,000 people, though the city has certainly continued to grow and expand. In particular, we have seen growth in the South Side of Corpus Christi where our Church is located. When we first started meeting at our newer location in 2006, we were mostly surrounded by fields of crops! Now there are lots of neighborhoods all around us. In fact, we take our congregational name from the Kings Crossing neighborhood where we are located.
Corpus Christi has significant ethnic diversity. In particular, as of the 2010 Census, our population is about 60% Hispanic, 21% Caucasian, 4.3% African American, and 2% Asian, along with ethnicities. We are pleased to have a good amount of ethnic diversity at our church and want for everyone to feel welcome.
There are many suburbs and communities nearby. Because they enjoy being part of our church family, we have members who drive in each week from nearby communities such as Portland, Flour Bluff, Aransas Pass, Sinton, Odem, Taft, and even Agua Dulce! The majority of our chuch members live in either Nueces County or San Patricio County.
Corpus Christi has a humid subtropic climate. This means our summers are long, hot, and fairly humid, while our winters are brief and generally mild. One of the most notable features of Corpus Christi is our neverending wind. In fact, we are the 8th windiest city in the United States, with an average wind speed of 12 mph!
But in fact, even though we have plenty of hot Texas sun, our breeze helps to take the edge off of the heat, and during the warmer months, especially as the sun begins to set, Corpus Christi is a wonderful city for pedestrians and outdoor activities. Speaking of which…
