Fall Adult Classes | Four Options

Wednesdays October 11 – 25 | 6:15pm – 7:15pm | Second Floor Classrooms | Four 3-week classes to choose from

BIBLICAL: Sermon on the Mount with Dr. Bill Higgs - Matthew 5-7 contains some of the most familiar—and most challenging—passages in the New Testament, focusing not on what a Christian is to believe, but how a Christian is to behave. Then and now, Jesus teaches us how to live out our faith in the light of his Gospel. 

PRACTICAL: Christ Church Connect with Rev. Dr. Eric Bryant and Rev. Amy Chapman - Whether you’re a new member of Christ Church, thinking about joining, or want to learn more about John Wesley and Methodism, we will share our church’s history and mission, introduce our ministry team, and lead a fascinating walking tour of the building. 

SPIRITUAL: Lectio Divina with Shelah Woodruff - Lectio Divina is a traditional spiritual practice of treating Scripture, not as a text to be studied, but as the living Word, meant to be experienced. Moving through verses in measured steps—read, reflect, respond, rest—you’ll engage with Scripture in a deeper, more personal way. 

SOCIAL JUSTICE:  Stretching Our Love with Rev. Dr. Leanne Hadley, Kate Crandell, and Liz Matney - Join your Christ Church friends as together we use Scripture and prayer to envision an inclusive church for all God’s beloved, including our LGBTQIA+ members, friends and allies. “Do not fear, greatly beloved; you are safe. Be strong and courageous!” Daniel 10:19

Booked for Lunch

Meets the Second Thursday of Each Month | 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Leader | Val Champion,

Booked for Lunch is a monthly book club for women of all ages. We believe that stories provide a powerful avenue for thinking deeply about God and faith at work in the world. As we dig into books by bestselling authors, we ask deep questions: Where is God in this story? How do we see love, forgiveness, and grace play out in this text? How does this story affect me, or change my own faith journey as I’m becoming living proof of God’s love, one person at a time? Reading popular books gives us the opportunity to invite others into these conversations about God—whether at our monthly meeting or beyond—and to share the hope, joy and love that we experience while reading in community. We invite you to bring your lunch and join us on the 2nd Thursday each month.

The Friendship Class was formed in the early `70s by six couples. Today we’ve grown to over 150 individuals. But don’t let our size intimidate you! We like to think we’ve grown so well because we offer a unique blend of individuals who have grown together in a special way through Christ.

So, who are we? We’re mostly couples who have cleared out our nests. Many are grandparents, some even great-grandparents. Some of us are single. But all of us are family! Our age range (not that that matters) is roughly 65 to 85.

We hope you will take the opportunity to visit The Friendship Class. Come and experience that special togetherness in Christ. We meet every Sunday with fellowship beginning at 10:05 AM in room 158 for in-person participation and on Zoom for virtual participation. Average attendance is 85 counting both in-person and Zoom.

Lessons are taught by class members and outside speakers on biblical topics as well as other topics relevant to the class. This group has a strong mission outreach emphasis as well as monthly social events.
