There is a longing deep within us all for wisdom and understanding. We wrestle with questions about our life’s purpose and yearn to know God and God’s ways.
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long. -Psalm 25:5
At Christ Church, we value thoughtful and engaging conversations about faith and life. We recognize too that all of us are at different places along our faith journey; as such, we foster an environment where all can share their thoughts and feelings. What is most important to us is that we take serious Jesus’ question, “Who do you say that I am?” (Mark 8:29) Faith is not about blind belief, but a deepening of a relationship with Jesus and his living body, the Church.
We invite you to join us at our many lively and engaging learning opportunities for adults. There are no special requirements; simply come as you are.
