Between Sundays: Weekly Bible Studies and Classes

Bible Studies, Book Studies and Prayer Groups

Youth and parents join us on the third Monday of each month for a Bible Study! We will have youth and parents work together with one another and share with the larger group as we dig into the scriptures and spend time discussing themes, ideas, and how we can apply the lessons in our everyday lives. We will be looking at the lectionary assigned each week. We are excited about this NEW offering and encourage you to join us.

Cursillo

One of the adult retreats/conferences we offer through Christ Church is Cursillo. “Cursillo” is a Spanish word meaning “short course.” Cursillo Weekends are offered Thursday night through Sunday afternoons three times a year at the Gravatt Camp and Conference near Aiken, SC.

A Cursillo Weekend is a time of encouragement and learning in a positive and spiritual environment for individuals or couples who are already participating members of the Church. Great meals, uplifting music and meaningful worship, short teachings by priest and lay persons, and small group time combine for a fulfilling weekend.

Learn more about Cursillo


Small Groups

Seeking something else? Perhaps a small group is just what you've been searching for! A Small Group is a group of about 12 adults who meet regularly (twice a month would be typical) for Christian fellowship, study, prayer, and service. For more information contact Chantal Smith.
