Christian Formation

For Adults

Tuesday Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer Group participates in a regular discipline of contemplative prayer. We meet weekly in the Christ Church Library on Tuesdays from 9:30 to 10:30 am. Be still and know God in the Centering Prayer form. Easy to learn. A blessing to practice. Join us anytime.

Tuesday Women's Study Group

The Women’s Study Group meets Tuesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The group is now reading Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus, written by our new Presiding Bishop, Michael B. Curry. All women are welcome to join this friendly group.

Education for Ministry News

Our meetings for “Sampling EFM” held April 18th and May 4th were a great success. In addition to several members of the Christ Church family, people from neighboring congregations, Episcopal and otherwise, joined our introductory sessions.

With this positive outcome, I will be offering two EfM groups beginning in September. Since my traveling grandmother duties often take me away either late in any given week and don’t return me to Middletown until Monday or Tuesday, our meetings will be on Wednesdays. The daytime meeting will be from 11:00-1:30 (as I have another commitment from 9:15-10:30 on Wednesdays). We will eat a “bring your own bag lunch” during our break time. The evening group will meet from 6:00-8:30 which includes what has become known as “EFM’s awesome snacks” at break. There is room for additional participants. Commitments and registrations are due June 15th. Please see me at church or contact me at ednamariethomas@gmail.com or at 252-876-6843 if you would like to learn more. -Edna Marie Thomas, EfM Mentor
