Teaching

The teaching ministries at Christ Church have had many different emphases and many different names over the years. Depending on the topic, season of the year, and the particular needs of our local church, Christ Church is always seeking to deepen our love and knowledge of God. This course is offered every Fall (and nearly every Spring as well). Contact Father Ben or Deacon Chris for more information.

Foundations

The Foundations Course at Christ Church is our foundational “first things” course. This 13-week series is rooted in classical models for Christian disciple-making. The objective of the Foundations Course is to increase our love and desire for God and our love for others. Among the topics covered by this course are:

  • The Narrative of Salvation History
  • The Foundation of Christian Doctrine
  • The Sacrament of Holy Communion
  • The Life of Prayer
  • The Sacrament of Holy Baptism
  • Christian living
  • The Anglican Way

Each participant will be assigned a sponsor. Sponsors meet at least once a week outside of class with their candidate for prayer, reflections, and to work on assignments.

Convergence Lectures

Convergence Lectures are a series of teachings that will “bridge the gap” between the sacred and the secular. These lectures will utilize wisdom from Holy Scripture, church history, and from secular disciplines to show common ground, identify clear contrasts, and to provide starting points for conversation.

Burgers & Big Ideas

During the summer of 2017, we hosted a family meal and taught on specific “big idea” topics. This is what Christ Church does. When we get together, we very often eat together, and we always want to direct our hearts and minds to Christ.
