Bible Studies and Classes

Sunday

Sunday Morning Live (Children’s Sunday School

We are excited about the Holy Moly curriculum we use for Sunday School for PreK through age 12. Each lesson begins with a brief animation presentation of a Bible character. After discussion, we break into groups where we read and discuss the Bible story, later reinforced with a creative activity.

Children’s Church

Children’s Church offers the children of Christ Church the unique opportunity to learn about the Gospel reading in an age appropriate setting during the 10:30 a.m. service. Before the readings begin, preschool and elementary age children are invited to follow the bearer of the Little Cross to attend Children’s Church. They have a Bible lesson, make crafts, sing songs, and return (with their Bible reading to take home) during announcements before communion.

Nursery

Children are welcome at Christ Church Worship services. Our well-care, newborn to four years, is provided in the nursery, upstairs in the Parish House. The nursery is staffed by two university students who are certified in the Episcopal Diocese of Texas Safeguarding God’s Children program.

An order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church and churches in communion with it. Members undertake a Rule of Life, incorporating a Rule of Prayer and the Rule of Service. By reaffirmation of the promises made at baptism and confirmation, a Daughter pledges herself to a life-long program of prayer, service and evangelism, dedicated to the spread of Christ’s Kingdom and the strengthening of the spiritual life of her parish.” Our Christ Chapter meets at 2:00 pm the 2nd Wednesday of each month in the Bailey House.

EfM (Education for Ministry)

A seminar that helps participants discern their spiritual gifts and talents by studying the Bible. Old and New Testament studies, along with Church History and philosophical studies of theology make this an intellectually invigorating and deep experience.
