Rector's Class on the Book of Isaiah

During Advent, Christ Church Parish will be reading passages from the book of Isaiah. To prepare for the readings, Father Michael will lead a Sunday morning class on Isaiah’s historical setting. To better understand the prophecy, Father Michael will teach on the empires, figures, and events involved. This class will be held in the Parish Hall at 9:30 a.m. This class will meet through December 17th. 

Adult Roundtable Book Study - Responding to the Holy One with Servanthood

Advent is the time when Christians try to center their lives waiting for God. Our study of Conversations with Scripture: 2 Isaiah, has led us to understand that waiting for God is action. For the Sundays of Advent 2, 3, and 4 we will be learning how to wait by studying chapters five (Atonement and Exuberance) and six (The Majesty of Servanthood) in Conversations with Scripture: 2 Isaiah. The study material is the book, Conversations with Scripture: 2 Isaiah, by Stephen L. Cook. Cost of the book is $16. This class meets upstairs in Rm. 32 of the Christian Education Building. Led by David Starling.

Lectionary Series

Join us when we continue to explore the meaning of Biblical texts, primarily the Gospel, and uncover the deeper meaning of how the Word Made Flesh still operates in our own lives.  In discovering the power of the Word, we hope that participants will prayerfully read the Bible on a daily basis to discover how it can speak to each of us individually.  This class meets in the Parlor.  Led by Dr. Dick Hooper.

Video Discussion for Parents & Young Adults

Every Sunday at 9:30 a.m., Upstairs in the Library.  Animate Bible Study, A three-part series designed to energize conversations about faith.  Led by Meredith Jones.

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.
