Christian Education for Youth
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." -Matthew 19:14
Our Sunday Church Education Program is for children and youth in Preschool and up. We currently use the Seasons of the Spirit curriculum which is lectionary-based and which follows our liturgical calendar. We meet each Sunday morning at:
- 9:30 AM for youth (grades 7 - 12) in the Library downstairs.
- 9:30 AM for children (preschool - 6) each Sunday in the Chapel. We spend 20 minutes praising God with music in the chapel and then proceed to the classrooms downstairs.
A Family Church Service in the chapel at 9:30 happens on the third Sunday of each month in lieu of church school.
Our 2019 program runs from the Sept. 15 through the school year.
Our Youth Group is available to all youth ages 11-17 (grades 7-12). They meet for Christian education and Confirmation training several times a month to deepen their understanding of their personal faith and spiritual journey through worship, fellowship, education, outreach and evangelism.
This program consists of a three year commitment of youths and their parents to provide opportunities for young people seeking to make an adult commitment to being a Christian to be active members in their own Christian Formation through worship, fellowship, education, outreach and evangelism. Please reach out to the church office for more information.
Christian Education for Adults
These classes are held for adults as well as the parents and godparents of the child to be baptized. The two to three session course teaches the meaning of and history of baptism.
The Bishop of our Diocese officially receives people into the Church Community. If the individual has already been confirmed in another denomination, they are “received.” If not, the person takes a two or three session course and is “confirmed.” This course introduces the foundational understandings of the Christian faith and the particular way we express that faith in the Episcopal tradition. All are welcome to attend: those already attending Christ Church as well as others who wish to have an opportunity to explore what it means to be Christian in the 21st century.
Bible Study Groups
Are you seeking to understand the Bible? Several small groups meet at a variety of times to do just this! They are like Jesus’ own small group of disciples – listening to Jesus’ teachings and struggling to understand.
