New Member Classes
Ready to join Christ the King Church? We offer New Member Classes twice per year, in the spring and fall. In this series of 3 classes (101, 201, 301) spread over as many weeks, we cover such topics as: The Gospel and the Church (capital “C”), the Anglican Communion, the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), the history of Christ the King Church, the responsibilities of membership, how the church is organized, how to plug in & serve, and how to formally join.
We ask that you would complete at least 2 of the 3 classes to proceed with membership and be able to be present for the next New Member Sunday. Lunch will be served in each class. Each class lasts about 1.5 hours, and start about 12:15PM (after the second Sunday service) and takes place in the Fellowship Hall. Check our calendar for the next available dates. Contact Charlie+ with any questions.
Confirmation, Reception & Reaffirmation Classes
At the beginning of each year, Christ the King Church offers Equipped for Ministry, a 4 class series to prepare you for Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation at the next bishop’s visit.
Topics include: Church history, the Creeds, Anglican history, the Ten Commandments, the Thirty-Nine Articles, the Catechism, the Sacraments, the rites of Confirmation, Reception and Reaffirmation, the Baptismal Covenant, understanding liturgy, understanding the Sunday service, using the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), discovering your spiritual gifts, plugging in at Christ the King Church, and much more.
Those desiring Confirmation, Reception, or Reaffirmation will need to complete at least 3 of the 4 classes. There is homework each week and some light memorization. Check our calendar for the next available dates. Contact Charlie+ with any questions.
Introduction to the Book of Common Prayer Class
The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is a great resource for all Anglicans. Not only does it set out the orders of service for The Holy Eucharist, Baptism, Confirmation, and many more, it also has prayers to be used throughout the day via the Daily Office: Morning Prayer, Midday Prayer, Evening Prayer, Compline, and others. These are suitable for individuals and groups of all sizes to use, and can be led by anyone. The BCP can help you maintain a rhythm of prayer and devotion in your life and simultaneously joins you to millions of Anglicans around the world doing the very same thing. This class will primarily focus on the Daily Office.
You will need an ACNA Book of Common Prayer (2019). If you need to purchase one, you may find out how on our Resources page. Check our calendar for the next available class. This class is about 2 hours long. Contact Charlie+ with any questions.
This isn’t so much a class as it is a website feature. Every post on our website is tagged with something. Simply type “Anglicanism 101” into the search bar at the top right of the homepage on our website, and, if it has to do with Anglicanism, you will get a listing of all the informative, short articles related to it and why we do what we do. Content is being added weekly, so check back often. Contact Charlie+ with any questions.
Disciple-Making Community Group
Want to learn how to share your faith? Want to learn how to disciple others that make disciples? Consider the Disciple-Making Community Group as we work together to follow Jesus in loving God, our neighbors as ourselves, and to be disciples who make disciples. We equip one another to engage those we come in contact with to begin conversations that ultimately lead to starting Discovery Bible Studies in their circles of influence.
The group meets in homes for the foreseeable future. For questions, or to join, please contact the Group Coordinator: Rev. Darlene Collom.
