Christian Education Programs
If you are looking to continue (or begin) your relationship with God, to find a church family, or for a place to question without judgement we invite you to visit Christ Church. We believe that Christian Education is a lifelong adventure. We know that there will be hills, valleys and side trips but you can always come home.
We offer various opportunities which bring us together to share our common life, enrich our lives and offer encouragement and wisdom. Newcomers and old friends gather to foster intellectual inquiry, spiritual growth and emotional support. Together, we mature in faith, grow in knowledge and love of God, as we endeavor to live lives faithful to our baptismal covenant.
Young Christians' Hour
Young Christians’ Hour takes place upstairs in the Education Wing on Sundays from 9:30am - 10:15am. YCH is designed for kids age 3 yrs-middle school. Our emphasis is on building community, hearing the Bible stories, and loving God. The curriculum evolves to meet the needs of young Christians and to help them prepare for the choice of confirmation. This year we will focus on the Book of Common Prayer, the Seasons/Colors/Holy Days, and the Parables of Jesus. Come upstairs and see what’s happening.
Adult Forum is an important part of Sunday mornings at Christ Church. We meet in the Parish Hall between the two morning services on Sundays (9:30am - 10:15am), while the kids are in Young Christians’ Hour. High school youth are encouraged to attend along with their parents and other adults. We have coffee and sweets for the body and focus for the mind and soul.
This year our theme is “Lighting the Way.” The entire year will provide intentional, provocative, spiritual education for adults. The offerings will be varied and interactive, including information about mission and ministry activities at Christ Church; programs dealing with Biblical studies, matters of faith, and our church history; and programs related to humanitarian issues and our role as Christians and Episcopalians in the world at large. You will be asked to engage and grow.
The Rector's Bible Study meets every Tuesday at noon in the church library. Please contact the Rev. Scott West (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
