Study

At Christ the Servant, we believe in lifetime learning and growing in our Christian journey. We offer many opportunities for all ages and interests on Sunday morning and at other times as well.

Sunday mornings from 9:50-10:50 am we have Christian Education for all ages. Children and youth gather by age groups and adults attend the morning Adult Forum for lessons and discussion.

Bible Study is offered weekly on Tuesdays.

Book Club gathers monthly to discuss the Christian perspective of books which include novels, poetry, short stories and plays dealing with everything from theology to science.

Film Buffs watch a member-selected movie each month and discusses it from a Christian perspective. Because everyone has a unique perspective on what makes a good movie, selections are diverse and discussions lively.

Confirmation Education begins in 7th grade and follows a three-year curriculum.

Young Adults @ CTS is a group of 18 to 35 year olds (or thereabouts) who gather for fellowship and theological discussion. We recently explored the Animate: Practices series to guide our discussions.
