Adults

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

Centering Prayer Group – Thursdays at Noon

Our prayer book defines prayer as “response to God, by thought or by deeds, with or without words” (p. 856). Centering Prayer is a practice of prayer without words. No prior experience is necessary. Please join us in Room 128 at Christ Church from noon to 1:15 p.m. every Thursday through Dec. 15 to learn more about and practice this prayer. For more information, please contact The Rev.

Dec. 4: Melissa Florer Bixler, Pastor at Raleigh Mennonite Church

“Trouble at the Table: A New Way of Life for a New People”
As we prepare our lives for Jesus during this “little Lent” we will take time to pause with the community at Corinth as Paul calls them to account for divisions in their community. How do social and economic divisions shape our Eucharistic practice? What do the shocking pronouncements in 1 Corinthians mean for those of us who share table fellowship today?

Dec. 11: The Rev. Mary Davila

Simeon and Anna: “Lord, you now have set your servant free to go in peace as you have promised; For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, whom you have prepared for all the world to see.”

These two temple dwellers have been waiting their whole lives to see the salvation of the Lord, and they burst forth in song when they meet the Christ Church. What does it mean to see the Savior, and where do we see him?
