Adults

We offer a wide range of diverse opportunities for formation, education and spiritual growth both on Sundays and throughout the week.

Bible Study Offerings

Women’s Bible Study

Led by The Rev. Mary Davila

Beginning Sept. 26, The Rev. Mary Davila will lead a study of Walk in Love: Episcopal Beliefs and Practices by Melody Shobe and Scott Gunn. This group meets on Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. in Room 128. The main focuses of this study are the basic beliefs of our faith, the sacraments of the Church, habits of daily prayer, the Christian life and the teachings of the Episcopal Church. Contact Mary to learn more and/or to get a copy of the book – mdavila@ccral.org.

Serenity Mondays

Led by The Rev. Jenny Brown

Twice per month, a small group of women gathers loosely around the 12-Step Program for Co-Dependency to share hope, strength and encouragement. This is a group where we listen to each other’s stories, and particularly to the stories around our most important relationships, and strive to become healthy, whole and free from within. If you are interested in working the steps, laughing and sharing on Holy Ground with each other, please contact The Rev. Jenny Brown for an appointment to learn more – jbrown@ccral.org.

Weekly Young Adults Discussion

Led by The Rev. Daniel Reeves

Each Sunday afternoon, all Young Adults (ages 20s to 40 ish) are invited to a discussion hour at 4 p.m. in Room 128. We’ll generally mold our conversation around the lectionary texts for that week and how they challenge, shed light on, and interact with our lives and the world. There will be light snacks, tea and coffee. These gatherings provide an opportunity to meet and get to know other young adults from Christ Church. We’ll finish up in time for the 5 p.m. Celtic Eucharist service. Contact The Rev. Daniel Reeves to learn more – dreeves@ccral.org.
