March 6 – April 3

Leader: The Rev. Paul Canady

We will explore the history of the Episcopal Church and what it means to follow and worship Jesus in an Episcopal context. This class is open for any adult who wants to learn more or re-fresh their memory or learn for the first time!

RECTOR'S BIBLE STUDY / Good Book Club

Wednesdays from 11am to noon, Library and Zoom

Leader: The Rev. Paul Canady

We are excited to be a part of The Good Book Club. It will be during the Rector’s Bible Study on Wednesdays at 11 am. This year’s study is on the first 20 chapters of Exodus. Each study will be led by a clergy person from around the diocese, and no, you don’t have to be a member of that parish to cost to register. Join us! You can register here. You will find dates, times, and facilitators at that link.

WOMEN'S BOOK STUDY

Tuesdays from 10 to 11am, Second Floor Living Room

Leader: Susan Hoyt and team

The Women’s Book Study will be reading Paul Escamilla’s book, Longing for Enough in a Culture of More. Women of all ages are invited to attend. We open our time together with prayer requests, prayer and then read the book aloud. We stop periodically during the reading to discuss the author’s ideas. We sometimes stray off topic. There is never homework. Of course, you can read ahead if you want to, but that is not required nor expected. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Hoyt, Phyllis Fox, Nell Hudson, or Meg Jones.

CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER GROUP

Mondays from 11:30am – 12:30pm, Zoom
Leader: The Rev. Barbara Bornemann

This session of the Centering Prayer group will focus on a book called Immortal Diamond by Richard Rohr. Each time the group meets, we will discuss one chapter and have opportunities for prayerful reflection and contemplation. Immortal Diamond, whose title is taken from in a line in a Gerard Manley Hopkins poem, explores deep questions of identity, spirituality, and meaning. Come, let us gather together and grow in our prayer life.

EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY (EfM)

Wednesdays from 6 to 8pm, Second Floor Living Room

Leader: Edna Marie Thomas

This class involves deep thinking and a lot of reading on your own. Readings of the Old and New Testaments, the history of the church and theology will allow you to dig deeper than most other classes. EfM is a four-year program that can be taken with gaps between years. The class will prepare you for any and all ministries you will serve in at Christ Church.
