Dying Well

Our faith tells us that in death we are reborn, but we leave
our loved ones to grieve and handle all the loose ends.
One of the greatest gifts that we can give is to plan for a good death. Christ Church will have a special class where we learn about dying well.
This class is for people of all ages.

Adult Christian Formation Roundtable

David Starling will facilitate a class whose purpose is to become better disciples of Christ by living in love and harmony with others and the creation. We do this through the study and discussion of scripture, current theology and how as Christians we can respond to the personal and social issues every human confronts.

This class meets upstairs in Room 32 of the Christian Education Building.

For more information contact David Starling (850) 712-0977 or dastarling@cox.net.

Lectionary Class

With Advent the church begins times of special reflection. Advent is the time of expectation and return, followed by Epiphany, a time of discovery, Lent, as a time of examination, and Easter, the capstone of the year, a time of joy and celebration. Come and experience these times in the Lectionary Class with Dick Hooper. Just as Jesus invited his disciples to “come and see,” come and discover what Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection mean in our own times.

This class meets in the Parlor.

Sunday Centering Prayer Group (Ongoing)

Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, in which we experience God’s presence within us.  We begin by taking a few minutes to go over the basic guidelines of the practice for anyone who is new.  We then sit together in the 20-minute prayer period, followed by a brief time for sharing and intercessory prayer.  All are welcome — newcomers and experienced practitioners.  This class meets in the Centering Prayer room on the administrative hallway.  The facilitator is Joan White.
