Adult Winter 2019 Classes

“What is your next step?” is an important question for faith formation. Our mission at Christ Church is becoming living proof of God’s love, one person at a time. We are on a life-long journey of faith where we are “becoming” Living Proof Disciples. We never finish this journey on earth. There are always new “steps” we need to take to sharpen our skills in becoming more like Christ. Simply click on the class title for details.

Christian Practices

Wednesdays, beginning January 9 | 6 – 7:30 pm | Room 258 | Facilitated by Nelson Knight

Like children that need nourishment, love, support, discipline and training in order to develop to their full potential, all of us need this same kind of nurturing to grow in our Christian faith. Have you ever considered practices such as fasting, simplicity, service and celebration as ways to grow closer to God? During this ongoing group, leader Nelson Knight will introduce you to a variety of historic and contemporary spiritual growth practices as well as give you an opportunity to try them out with others in a safe and supportive environment.

Celebration of Discipline

Sundays, January 20 – February 24 | 5- 6:30 pm | Prayer Room | Facilitated by Nelson Knight and Tom Badgett

Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster explores the central spiritual practices of the Christian faith and how they can become part of our daily activities, leading to a balanced spiritual life. The inward Disciplines of meditation, prayer, fasting, and study offer avenues of personal examination and change. The outward Disciplines of simplicity, solitude, submission, and service help prepare us to make the world a better place. The corporate Disciplines of confession, worship, guidance, and celebration bring us nearer to one another and to God.

The discussion of celebration, often the most neglected of the Disciplines, shows its critical importance, for it stands at the heart of the way to Christ.

Unafraid

Mondays, January 28 – March 4 | 9:30 – 11 am | Room 252 | facilitated by Jennie Weeks

Thursdays, beginning January 31| 6:30 - 8 pm in Room 253 | facilitated by Tish Muldoon & Angie Henry for women

Do fears and uncertainties in life keep you awake at night or rob you of the life you want? Would you like to experience more calm, courage, hope and joy rather than being controlled by anxiety? We are offering two opportunities to engage in dialogue about our many fears and anxieties: disappointing others, failure, financial insecurity, loneliness, insignificance, aging, and outside perils such as terrorism. The book we will use to help in our discussions is Adam Hamilton’s most recent book “Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope in Uncertain Times.”

Created in God's Image

Dates and times to be determined. Facilitated by David Owen.

The Bible tells us that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14) and that we are "created in the God's image" (Genesis 1:26). In this four week series, David Owen will help us explore these and other Biblical passages so that we can understand who we are, why we think, feel and act the way we do, and how we can draw closer to the one in whose image we were created. In the second half of the series, we will explore what it means to be created as triune beings - comprised of body, soul and spirit, and how we must care for each of these aspects.
