Sunday morning offers an hour of time at 9:15 each week for reflection and conversation on learning and living our faith. Topics include Bible studies, book discussion groups, Episcopal tradition, and mindfulness in daily life.
Classes run Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15.
Weekday daytime formation options include a weekly Wednesday morning Bible study at 10am.
Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Following a guide or commentary, this study group reads books of the Bible, examining their contexts and reﬂecting on their meaning in life today. The group gathers at 10 for prayer, and then study and discussion until 11:45. All are welcome.
Weeknight offerings for adult formation include the Education for Ministry program on Mondays at 6:30pm, a First Thursday Bible on Tap discussion for those in their 30s and 40s, and a Wednesday night Speaker Series during the season of Lent.

First Thursdays from 6:30-8pm: Bible on Tap
On the first Thursday of each month, The Rev. Ceci Duke gathers with all interested 30- and 40-somethings at the Iron Horse Tavern or other local establishment (check ThisWeek at Christ Church for venue) in Norcross to relax, catch up, and discuss Scripture and Theology.
Christ Church offers seasonal programs for Advent and Lent, as well as longer Saturday morning workshops on special topics throughout the year. Workshops offer opportunities to experience spiritually forming practices that speak to our minds, bodies, and souls. Topics may incorporate artwork, dream work, lectures, or time in nature. Our Advent session occurs during the Sunday school hours in December and our Lenten series takes place on Wednesday evenings in the weeks leading to Easter. Contact Parish Administrator for more information.
Every baptized person is called to ministry. The Education for Ministry (EfM) program, an extension of the School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee, TN, provides people with the education to carry out that ministry and the opportunity to discover how to respond to the call to Christian service. This is an exciting four-year course which explores the scriptures as well as church history, ethics and theology. EfM runs for 34 sessions each year, from September through May and meets on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the Parlor. For more information, please contact Dianne Olson or Ellen Lewis.
