At Christ Church, opportunities for the education and formation of adults are designed to assist participants in deepening their theological understanding and furthering spiritual growth through study, discussion, reflection, and prayer. With other believers and seekers, participants use the gifts of faith and reason to heighten the knowledge and experience of God’s work in their lives.

The Sunday Forum series, the cornerstone of adult education programming at Christ Church, takes place on Sunday, 10:00 - 11:00 a.m., during the academic year. The series is complemented by many additional opportunities for learning and fellowship: weekly Bible study, the Young Adults Fellowship, the Women's Bible Study, the Men’s Ministry, and the Contemplative Life Ministry, and special events throughout the year.


Women's Bible Study

The Women's Bible Study, an intergenerational group of women who gather for lively learning and fellowship, meets on Tuesday evenings, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., throughout the program year. During the seasons of Advent and Lent, meetings cease in order that participants may take part in parish-wide seasonal offerings.

Parish Bible Study

The Parish Bible Study meets on Monday nights at 6:00 p.m., via Zoom. For more information, please be in touch with the Reverend Melissa Hollerith, Interim Assistant to the Rector.


Young Adults Fellowship

The Young Adults Fellowship provides opportunities for parishioners in their 20s, 30s, and 40s to gather for study and discussion, work and play. Over the years, activities have included a book group, a teaching series with the clergy, and a monthly brunch. Most recently, nearly 50 parishioners gathered for happy hour at Chez Billy Sud in Georgetown. If you have questions or would like to become involved, contact the the Reverend Andrew A. Kryzak, Associate Rector.

Special Offerings

Christ Church is pleased to offer special educational opportunities for adults during the seasons of Advent and Lent and, on occasion, during the summer months. Content generally relates to the themes of these seasons.

Tuesday Evening Lenten Series 2021

Join us on Tuesdays, February 23, March 2, 9, 16, and 23, at 6:30 p.m., via Zoom, as we continue our evenings of fellowship and learning, led by the parish clergy, seminarian, and guest speaker the Reverend Dr. Frank Wade. Week by week, participants will consider how we grow as Christians, using Saint Paul’s familiar sequence in his Epistle to the Romans as a guide: More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. (Romans 5:3-5) To join via Zoom, click here.

Recordings of each seminar are available here.
