Youth
Middle School (grades 6 - 8): All Saints Center, Room 209
This year, our Middle Schoolers will continue with the Weaving God's Promises curriculum. Youth will become engaged through prayer, story, and multiple activities, and are taught connections to Episcopal traditions and the seasons of the church year.

High School (grades 9 - 12): All Saints Center, 2nd Floor
9th - 12th Grade: Room 204

Our High Schoolers will engage with Teen Text, a diverse and educational curriculum that encourages youth to "go deep, be real, and let go." Teen Text "promotes discussion, critical thinking, and creative listening." Every week, the youth will work with the following central questions: What is happening in the story? How is this happening in the world around me? How is this story my own story?

Faith Foundations (previously Confirmation): All Saints Center Room 200
Designed for newcomers, adults wanting to re-learn the basics, and youth seeking confirmation, clergy will cover basic information such as the overarching story of the Bible, how to utilize the Book of Common prayer as a study tool, the roots of the Episcopal Church, worship and prayer resources, and more! We invite you to come and join us for these in-class and out-of-class experiences!

Adults
Parenting Faithfully, All Saints Center, Room 103 
Join us for an informal discussion of Sticky Faith: Everyday Ideas To Build Lasting Faith In Your Kids. Authors Powell and Clark offer both a rationale and a strategy to show parents how to encourage their children’s spiritual growth so that as they leave home, they have a faith that sticks. Facilitated by Caroline Avinger.

The Rector’s Forum, Parish House, McKissick Refectory, Room 136
Episcopal Theology and Polity: “What does the Episcopal Church believe about XXX?” "Why does the Bishop wear such a funny hat?” The answers to these questions and many more you may never thought to have asked will be answered as we explore what it means to be an Episcopalian. The church we have inherited and the theology that undergirds our tradition will be the topic this spring. We hope you will come join the Rector’s forum and lean more bout who were are as Episcopalians and how we discern our faith and practice in the world. 

Gospel Living, Parish House, Graham Library, Room 219
Do you want to make connections between Sunday’s lessons and your everyday life? Do you want to know more about the historical context and intricacies of the texts you hear each Sunday? Join Christ Church clergy as they spend about 20 minutes sharing the notes they used to prepare the week’s sermon. Then break into interest groups to discuss questions which will help you apply the lessons to your life’s circumstances.

Faith Perspectives, Parish House, Room 223

Join us as we begin reading our next book on January 13th.  Unity and Diversity”  is the latest version of “Oneing" from the Center for Action and Contemplation.  Richard Rohr is among the writers.  The format of outside reading followed by discussions facilitated by class members will expand your understanding of faith and its many expressions. Facilitated by Sandy Carr and Anne Arrington.
