WEEKLY PROGRAM OFFERINGS

Adult Forums

Adult Forum

On Sunday mornings during the Program Year (September through May) we offer the Sunday morning Adult Forum – a spiritual formation program covering topics related to matters of faith and Christian living. Topics vary by week or by series and are drawn from biblical studies, ethics, theology, church history, and contemporary affairs. Forums are held in Etherton Hall of the Parish House from 9:15 AM to 10:00 AM. Coffee and refreshments are served.

Wednesday Book Discussion Group

Looking for some great discussions and small group sharing? Join us on Wednesdays from 10 AM -12 Noon in the parish house library. Participants read and discuss the book during the meeting, so there is no preparation required. Come and share a book for a session!

Adult Inquirers: Confirmation & Reception

Are you new to the Christian faith, coming from another denomination, or an Episcopal “lifer” who is just plain curious? Christ Church offers an “Inquirer’s Class” for adults who would like to learn more about the roots, practices and beliefs of Christianity, the Episcopal Church and the traditions and teachings that you may have forgotten or never knew. The Inquirer’s Class is strongly recommended for anyone considering Confirmation–the mature act of affirming ones commitment to his or her baptismal promises—or Reception—the act of publicly welcoming those who were confirmed in another tradition into the Episcopal Church. Both Confirmation and Reception occur during the Bishop’s annual visitation. For more information, please contact Steve Mosher at 410-745-9076.

Lenten Suppers & Discussion

Tuesday evening Lenten Suppers sponsored by the Bay Hundred Covenant Community Churches address a variety of social justice issues that impact our society and the world at large, and offer us as a community of faith, the opportunity to address these issues within our home area.

Youth Confirmation

Young people age fourteen or older who are interested in learning more about making a mature affirmation of their faith and commitment to the church are welcome to attend our confirmation classes.
