Adults

Each Sunday, adults gather during our Formation Hour – you are invited to join in any of these activities!

You’ll find some folks in the Gathering Area enjoying coffee and good company.  Others gather for a regular Adult Bible Study, held in Room 109. In the sanctuary, we gather for a variety of shorter-term Bible Studies, series on faith and contemporary issues, forums on CLC ministries and community needs, and special guest speakers.
Sunday Morning Adult Faith Formation and Fellowship – weekly at 9:20 a.m.

Below are additional Faith Formation opportunities at Christ Lutheran Church:

Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is a 10-week in-depth study of the connections between faith, justice, and racism. We know that the church is the place where we don’t have to be afraid to talk about difficult things, to tell the truth, to learn, grow, and repent!  For a second year CLC is partnering with neighbors to host a large Sacred Ground study group, and we continue to work toward opportunities to continue our learning and growth.

Book Club

Meets the 4th Tuesday of the month for discussion around the book of the month.  We gather at 7pm in Room 119 off the Gathering Space; contact the church office for more information.

Women’s Bible study

The Women’s Bible Study group meets every Tuesday evening from 7:00- 8:30 p.m. in Room 120 off the Gathering Space and works through a variety of different studies and Biblical texts. This group collects change at every meeting to help “change the world”. Monies collected are then donated to varying charities that the group decides on.

Our Carriage Group

"Our Carriage” supports those who have suffered a pregnancy or infant loss by acknowledging the incredible challenges they are experiencing.  At Our Carriage, we know that pregnancy and infant loss is an isolating and devastating experience. We support those who've suffered this loss by acknowledging the incredible challenges we’re experiencing, knowing that this group is one of the few places where we can speak the truth about the depth of our emotions and the details of our experience. For some of us here, this may be the only place in our lives where we can talk honestly: one place no one will tell us we’re feeling too much, not enough, we should be over it, etc.  Our Carriage meets monthly on the third Thursday at 7pm.  For more information reach out to ourcarriagesupport@gmail.com or visit https://www.facebook.com/OurCarriageSupportGroup.

Grief Support Group

Support group for those that have suffered a loss. Meets as needed; please contact the church office to check dates and times.

Women’s Daytime Bible Study (Priscilla Circle)

Meets at Christ Lutheran in Conference Room 120 every Tuesday afternoon from 1:00- 2:30 p.m. during the school year. Enjoys monthly lunches over the summer months. We engage in lively conversations to learn from one another, reading and discussing the Bible readings for the upcoming Sunday worship service.  We also sponsor the Annual Angel Tree service project, helping provide Christmas gifts to local families in need.

Costa Rica Partnership Team

Covid disrupted CLC’s plans for its first ministry partnership trip to visit Casa Adobe in Costa Rica – and from that, a third year of shared faith and learning has arisen!  The Costa Rica team is building relationships and learning alongside our partners at Casa Adobe – last year with a joint community gardening project, this year with a focus on Watershed Discipleship.  With the gift of zoom, we connect across miles to share our faith and our learning, and plan to travel to Costa Rica in 2023.  Please contact the church office if you’d like to join this group!

AA Group

Meets at CLC on Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. for an open meeting. Park and enter Door 20 off the back traffic circle.
