The Bible is our source of inspiration, wisdom, comfort and spiritual growth.
As a progressive Episcopal Church, we are rooted in both scripture and reason, seeking to grow in our faith by engaging our hearts and minds in thoughtful, relevant education.

Reading Between the Lines
The Reading Between the Lines curriculum adds to our understanding of scripture and allows us to reflect theologically on topics that arise from cultural and literary inspirations. These groups generally meet once a week from September through May. There are several groups in progress at Christ Church. Beginning in September 2021, there will be openings in the Monday morning group, which will meet at the church from 9:30 to 10:30 am each Monday. Please email Amanda Anders for more information about Reading Between the Lines or register here. Space is limited.
