ADULT CHRISTIAN LEARNING MINISTRY
We are all at different stages of our spiritual journey. The Adult Christian Learning programs at Christ Church Pelham are designed to nourish our spiritual growth, provide opportunities for us to learn more about our faith tradition, and discuss tough questions about God, spirituality and our Christian mission in the modern world. The Adult Christian Learning Committee aspires to provide all adult members of the Christ Church community with opportunities for reflection, fellowship, education and spiritual growth.
THE RECTOR’S BIBLE STUDY
On Thursdays (as announced) from 8:00 am to 8:45am Father Matt leads a Zoom Bible Study. Join using the Zoom Button on our website (PW “BOLTON”). Each Week we will cover a variety a different topics. Each Bible Study is recorded and posted to out YourTube Page, so you can catch it later if you miss the live version. Click here for more information.
LECTIONARY BIBLE STUDY
On Thursdays (resuming on October 21, 2021) from 10am to noon we offer a weekly Lectionary Bible Study. Our group is led by Michael Moynihan and Missy Kisob and occasionally guest leaders Father Matt or Deacon Chisara. Each week we gather to discuss the prior week’s sermon and look ahead at the coming Sunday’s Scripture (Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle, and Gospel) in the lectionary assigned by the Church. The conversation is free flowing and fun and often includes good food. After our hiatus for much of 2020 and 2021 we resumed October 21. For the time being, all attendees must be fully-vaccinated (please provide your proof of vaccination to the parish office before attending this in-person Bible Study).
EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY (EfM)
Every baptized person is called to ministry. The Education for Ministry (EfM) program provides people with the education to carry out that ministry. During the Service of Confirmation we ask God to “Renew in these your servants the covenant you made with them at Baptism. Send them forth in the power of the Spirit to perform the service you set before them.” EfM offers an opportunity to discover how to respond to the call to Christian service. Christ Church hosts an EfM group on Thursday Nights. If you are interested in joining please contact Deacon Chisara Alimole. The Group meets on Thursday evenings.
Our Adult Learning Committee offers numerous special programs through the year. The best way to keep tabs on these is by joining our weekly Parish Notes email list or keeping eye an on the Parish Calendar.
