Men's Ministry

Welcome to Men's Ministry at Christ Church. 

We gather for fellowship, spiritual learning, and community outreach, and we're always open to newcomers. Throughout the year we offer a wide variety of programs and events, so whether you're looking to dip your toe in or dive deeper, we hope you'll join us. All opinions and life stages are welcome. 

Men's Midweek Bible Study

Wednesdays, 7:15 - 8 am in the Blue Room, beginning September 15, 2021
Leaders: Craig Cmiel, David Dean, Jon Kocmond and Christ Church Clergy
This Bible Study creates an opportunity for men to gather weekly and develop a deeper understanding of their faith. We rotate through God’s Word, Jesus’ teachings, and the Holy Spirit on a quarterly basis. The format involves prayer, weekly readings, historical narrative, education, and group discussion. The group has been meeting via Zoom, but will begin meeting in person in the Blue Room at the church in September 2021. All men are welcome to join, at any time throughout the year. For more information, please contact Craig Cmiel.
