It's easy for our culture of individuality and innovation to shape the way we think about the church. But the Church is called to something greater. The Apostles' Creed Teen Bible Study is a 12-week Bible study that takes students into the foundations of Christianity for a closer look at what we believe and who we are called to be.

LIFE TOGETHER

A Vision Wall for Hebron Hall
Parish Forum, September 8, 6-7 PM

We are creating a Vision Board to help us share Christ Church Anglican's calling to Worship, Mission, Catechesis and Life Together. What does this look like? How do we pray for our vision? How do we fulfill it?  Come and contribute to the making of a vision board to answer these questions and more.  All are welcome to come and prayerfully imagine what our vision looks like.

RSVP now!!


Renew: A Seat at The Table
Saturday, September 10, 9:30 -11:30 AM, The Whitefield Center

How wonderful it would be if Jesus came to our homes for a meal as he often did with people! Sharing thoughts and conversation around the table allows for deeper conversation and sharing. With those things in mind, Renew has a new format and location. Please come to the Whitefield Center and join other women in a small group around a table for food and thoughtful fellowship. We will look at scripture where Jesus visited in people’s homes for a meal and discuss the scriptures and application to our lives. Saturday, September 10, 9:30-11:30, Whitefield Center.
