From September through May parishioners, visitors, and friends gather on Sundays at 10:00 AM in the Parish Hall for educational and inspirational programs. Presented by the clergy, parishioners, guests from the community, and guests of other faith traditions, our Sunday Adult Enrichment sessions address topics such as Holy Scripture, Church history, Episcopal identity, theology, worship, spirituality, other religious beliefs and practices, and contemporary issues. Please join us for a cup of coffee or tea, a mid-morning snack, and an hour of relevant and engaging Christian education. For more information, please contact Russ Bohner by filling out this contact form.
Advent Series - Children of Promise
Isaac the patriarch, Samuel the prophet, John the Baptist, and Jesus of Nazareth - each is born by an act of God's grace, each begins a new chapter in God's work of salvation, each is born of a mother who exemplified faithfulness. Isaac is one of the three patriarchs of Israel, Samuel is the prophet who guides Israel from a loose federation of tribes into the monarchy, John the Baptist is the bridge between the Old and New Covenants, and Jesus is the Christ, the fulfillment of God's salvation for the world. For the Sundays of Advent, join Ruth Kirk and Russ Bohner for an in-depth examination of the life and relevance of these four Children of Promise.
Isaac the Patriarch (Genesis 21:28:4) - December 8
Samuel the Prophet (1 Samuel 1:-25:1) - December 15
John the Baptist (Luke 3:1-20) - December 22
Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:26-56, 2:1-40) - December 29
Several Christ Church members have expressed an interest in organizing an adult pilgrimage on the historic Camino de Santiago in northern Spain sometime in 2014. The Camino, often called The Way of St. James, has several routes, but all terminate at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, believed by some to be the burial site of St. James, one of Jesus’ first disciples. The routes through the Galician region of Spain have been used by Christian pilgrims since the 9th century, and the city’s ancient areas have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for decades. Interested in walking some portion of the pilgrimage route next year? Questions? Contact .

This study is led by The Reverend Ruth Lawson Kirk. Following the 6:30 AM Eucharist in the Chapel, books of the Bible are discussed over an informal breakfast in Room 211/212. Each session ends at 8:00 AM. This is an excellent opportunity to take time out of a busy schedule for worship, fellowship, and deepening our knowledge of Scripture. It’s a great way to begin the day. For more information, please contact The Rev. Ruth Kirk by filling out this contact form.
