ADULT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance
EDUCATION, FORMATION, FELLOWSHIP
Christian education and formation for adults at St. Christopher is offered throughout the year. We enjoy engaging in our faith and growing deeper in our understating of who God is, and strengthening our walk with Christ.
On Sundays, 2-3 classes are held on a regular basis that include bible and topical studies.
We often have Wednesday evening teaching series during different seasons of the church year that include study, fellowship, and a meal.
There are several growth groups that meet weekly in the homes of parishioners. In addition, there are bible study groups that meet on the church campus throughout the week. All groups are open to new participants.
For more information on Christian education opportunities for adults, contact Fr. Brian.

The New Testament You Never Knew, by N. T. Wright and Michael Bird - Through reading the New Testament we continually discover that God indeed keeps his promises, but those promises don’t always look like what people expected. Especially when it comes to Jesus.
The Case for Christmas, by Lee Strobel - In this four-week study, Lee reveals what he discovered as he sought to separate the holiday from the holy day, the facts from the fantasy, and the truth from the tradition. In each session you will explore:
What the Bible actually says about Jesus’ birth and how you can know it is accurate
Whether the Christmas story actually happened or developed from the myths of the day
The Bible’s claim that Jesus was born of a virgin and why it is important to your faith
How Jesus–and only Jesus–fulfilled hundreds of biblical prophecies about the Messiah
The Case for Christmas will invite you to look beyond the familiar traditions of the season, challenge you to examine the evidence for yourself, and consider why Christmas really matters.
LIFE Ladies: Living in Faith Everyday
Women's bible study meets Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. at the home of Julie Howell. All are welcome.
The Lamb of God: Seeing Jesus in Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, by Nancy Guthrie - Jesus's declaration that Moses wrote of him frames this study of four books of the Pentateuch―Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy―as we discover the many ways that Moses spoke about Christ. Seasoned Bible teacher Nancy Guthrie shows that the Bible's story from beginning to end is the story of the Lamb―the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Over ten weeks of guided personal Bible study, relevant teaching, and group discussion, you will gain a fresh perspective on the story of Israel's deliverance and journey, a broader understanding of Jesus as the fulfillment of Scripture, and much more, when you join with Nancy on this incredible journey to see Jesus in the Old Testament!
Revelation - The Christian's Ultimate Victory, by John MacArthur (Beginning September 19th) - Written by the apostle John, Revelation was a letter to churches in Asia Minor who were feeling the overwhelming effects of persecution from all sides. This book was a reminder that encouraged them to remain faithful. Through vivid imagery, John writes Revelation to reveal the end of human history, the return of Christ, and the establishment of a new heaven and a new earth. Revelation message of hope assures Christians that God is in sovereign control of all past, present, and future events, and that Jesus Christ will judge the lost and rule in ultimate victory over all human and demonic opposition.
