Aldersgate Bible Class
The Aldersgate class is a group of adults sharing Bible study and fellowship. The class uses a guide to examine Scripture in an organized, disciplined manner. Emphasis is on understanding what the Bible says, and how we can apply that to our daily lives. The class also holds periodic socials, usually a Sunday brunch at a local restaurant. Class size allows for easy conversation and sharing among members. Visitors are always welcome.
The Asbury class concentrates on Bible study, led by a number of qualified teachers. In the summer months, guest speakers are used. Quarterly socials and service projects are included. Visitors are always welcome.
Christ and Conversation Class
This class for adults meets during the Sunday School hour for couples and singles, ages 30-45+. This is a wonderful opportunity to be part of a small group at Christ Church. Persons can connect to God, to Christ Church, and to other people as they enjoy study and fellowship.
The Cokesbury class is composed of adult singles and couples of various ages, mostly 50 and above. Class members and invited guests lead discussion/lecture sessions each Sunday. Topics vary from Bible studies to current events. Class fellowship events are held periodically throughout the year. Visitors are always welcome to join us. Financial outreach support is provided to numerous church groups and outside agencies. Recently, we have supported WNC hurricane relief, Servant Center, the youth mission trip, Faith Action, Friends of Foster Children, Habitat for Humanity, African Relief, Barnabus Project, Labyrinth Fund, Pastor's Discretionary Fund, Greensboro Urban Ministry, and CUMC Youth Facility Fund. In addition, we provide attendance and manpower support to the Conference Lay Gathering, Wednesday meals, parking cars, GUM meals and sandwiches, Habitat, assist with UMW events, mission building trips, the Advent Workshop, Salvation Army bell ringing, and church grounds clean-up. Our class members are involved in many aspects of the life of Christ Church and in "Making Disciples for Christ."
The Epworth class emphasizes class discussion led by members. Topics come from “FaithLink,” an official source for the United Methodist Church. Its purpose is to connect faith and life as United Methodists. Very informal setting for free discussion of sometimes controversial subjects. Visitors are welcome. Outreach programs include providing sandwiches for Greensboro Urban Ministry’s Night shelter. Uses Faithlinks Study.
Faith Matters Class
The Faith Matters class was established to explore faith and life issues concerning today’s Christian family. The format for the class is group discussion with an emphasis on sharing ideas and real life experiences. Our goal is to provide a solid foundation for Christian family life. The class is composed of couples and singles with children of all ages. We enjoy a variety of outreach and social activities. Visitors are always welcome.
The running theme of the class is to create a supportive and creative environment where all walks of life can attend, "open their arms" and be open to receiving and working with God's gifts. The class works as a group to create a shared experience out of thin air, using the fundamentals of improvisational theatre.
The Koinonia class is a combination of lecture/discussion formats, primarily led by Linda Danford. Subject content is divided equally between Bible study and contemporary works of literature or commentary. Each year is at least one unit of study on Church history, particularly the development of the early Christian community during the time of the Roman Empire and into the Middle Ages. We warmly welcome singles or couples to join.
The Seekers class is a lecture/discussion format led by a variety of speakers. The subjects studied and discussed include particular books of the Bible, significant figures in religion, early church history, and other Bible-related studies. Some outside reading is encouraged but not necessary for participation in the class. The Seekers class is composed of adults (singles and couples) of all ages. Visitors are always welcome.
Parents of Young Children
The Parents of Young Children Class studies modern Christian and Methodist parenting and family life through discussion of books, videos, and online materials. The focus is on plugging young families into the fellowship and outreach opportunities at Christ Church, as well as creating new opportunities for young families to spend time together.
The Next Step
Next Step will explore ways to embrace John Wesley’s vision of doing all the good we can. Be prepared to do hands-on work inside and outside the class, and have open and meaningful conversations about the needs in our community and how we can positively affect those needs. Our goal is to take our work beyond the classroom environment and into the community, when and where needed, while creating a loving relationship with each other.
Dimensions: Hearing the Good News
Do you believe at a deep level that God loves you, even you? Are you serious about nurturing that relationship? Strengthening your prayer life? If so, come to a new Sunday school class that will explore these themes and seek inspiration to “unpack” the Good News of the Gospel and apply it to everyday life. Led by Robin Britt.
Montagnard Bible Study
This class sings Montagnard hymns, discusses the weekly sermon and scripture, and prays for members needs. Koho is the spoken language.
