Faith Essentials at Christ Church are unique class experiences that create community and strengthen your faith.  They are based on the need each of us has to grow closer to God.  We believe that we do this by responding to Jesus, embracing Jesus, becoming present, cultivating hospitality, growing in generosity, and discovering our purpose.  Every Faith Essentials class experience is based on one or more of these dimensions of our spiritual journey.  These experiences have been vetted and/or created by our pastoral staff and have a proven record of helping you grow in your faith.  For questions on any of these Faith Essentials classes, please contact Pam Charbonneau here.

Ways to Pray
So many of us are told that prayer can help us grow close to God, but we often get stuck. Do you feel stuck? There could be a number of reasons, but most often it's because we just don't know how to start. This Faith Essentials experience is designed to help you discover different prayer forms that will deepen your relationship with God. Coming soon! Check back later for registration details.

Teleios: Bible Study Methods to Grow Spiritually

The Apostle Paul used the Greek word Teleios to refer to the goal of Christian discipleship, that the Body of Christ would become mature and complete.  Teleios Classes are designed to produce followers of Christ who are guided by the mind of Christ, transformed into the image of Christ, and engaged in the work of Christ.  We can all grow closer in our relationship to Jesus. If you've ever been stuck or frustrated with reading scripture, Teleios - Bible Study Methods to Grow Spiritually will transform your reading from dry and academic to inspiring and full of life.
