All kids ages 4-7 are welocme at Gracious Play on the 2nd and 4th (and occasionally 5th) Sundays of the month, when formal Sunday school is not taking place. The kids read stories, learn communication skills, and create art. Gracious Play takes place in the Children's Wing from 9am-10am.

Children and youth are fully integrated into the life of our church and considered a vital part of what it means to be in the Christ Church community.  Children of all ages are welcome in our worship experience.  By including children in our worship experience, it allows them to learn the practice of worship and it helps them to understand different aspects of how we practice theology and the creation of our faith experiences. We have a Sunday School program that runs from September through May.  We separate the children and youth by ages and offer them developmentally appropriate opportunities to engage their faith. Our Youth, sixth grade through high school, have an invitation to be a part of a bi-monthly Youth Group experience that includes community, education, justice, theology and relationship.  As 7th graders or older, youth are invited into a confirmation experience so that they can determine, with their families, whether they would like to join the church as members.

ADULT MINISTRIES


Adult Education begins September 8th at 9am.

The Adult Seminar continues the decades-long Christ Church tradition of open discussion that aims to reflect on what is ultimately important in life. We host a variety of speakers from all walks of life and backgrounds, even from different religions. Our goal is to reflect and ask questions about who we are and our calling from God.

Pastor's Study  begins September 8th at 9am.

The Pastor's Study will meet in the Naylor Study. For the fall season, they will be reading The Meaning of the Bible: What the Jewish Scriptures and Christian Old Testament Can Teach Us by Douglas A. Knight and Amy-Jill Levine. Written by two authors, one Christian and one Jewish, this book brings varied cultural viewpoints to the stories of the Bible. It conveys insightful connections between the Scriptures and the prevailing contexts for living in current times. Drawing on archaeology, history, other ancient middle eastern languages, literary and textual scholarship, the authors communicate the viewpoints of the many authors of the Bible as they tried to understand God. The book is available from various booksellers, and for the Kindle e-reader. A few copies will be available the first day of class. There will be no Pastor's Study class on September 22 since Rev. Sharon will be leading the Adult Seminar.
