FORMATION + FELLOWSHIP

CHRISTIAN FORMATION

Christian Formation provides opportunities for learning and growing together in our faith, as well as in our relationships with one another. We know that Christian education is more than acquiring knowledge; it is about helping one another discover God’s presence in and purpose for our lives.

Tuesday Night Discussion Group

Every Tuesday

Adult Forum is held on Sundays, from 9-10AM in the Parish Hall, and offers opportunities to learn about topics relating to our world and faith, along with occasions to gather for congregational meetings.

Due to the current demographics of the Parish, our programming is directed toward adults with no regular programming for children or teens. Nursery care is provided for infants and preschoolers. Children are welcomed and participate at all services.

FELLOWSHIP

Downtowner’s Group

The Downtowners Luncheon Group is a fun bunch that meets monthly for lunch, trying out different local restaurants around Dayton. They typically meet on the third Wednesday of each month. A casual, fun way to enjoy fellowship with one another while supporting local businesses and sampling wonderful cuisine!

First Friday Foyer Gathering

Christ Church is excited to announce a new approach to Foyer
for the 2019-2020 program year. In the past, Foyer Groups at Christ Church were small groups, about 6-8 people that would meet monthly for dinner and fellowship in one another’s homes. This is a very traditional approach to Foyer; this year we’d like to try something new…

A Parish-wide Foyer will be held on the First Friday of each month at Christ Episcopal Church, beginning November 1, 2019. Dinner will be a potluck beginning at 6:30pm in the Parish Hall, and everyone is encouraged to bring a dish to share.

No sign-up, no year long commitment, just come as you are and when you are able. Tables of 8 will be set in the Parish Hall to still give the intimacy of dining with a small group. You are welcome to sit where you’d like, but we encourage you to sit with new folks each month. Guests are always welcome…we’ve got warm hearts and wide tables!

We hope you’ll consider joining us as we see where the
Spirit takes us in this new season of Foyer at Christ Church!

Women’s Retreats

Each spring and fall, we conduct a Women’s Retreat, designed to be a time for relaxation, fellowship, and spiritual renewal. A casual, fun, and engaging time with other women of the parish to strengthen friendships and make new ones, the weekend retreat is self-led by women of the parish and often held in a private retreat house at the Convent of the Transfiguration in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Sundae Sundays

A favorite gathering for kids and adults alike, Sundae Sundays are a summer hit! Typically held once a month from May – September, Sundae Sunday is filled with ice cream and smiles following the 10:30 worship service.

Summer First Fridays

First Fridays are a Dayton-wide celebration of downtown establishments throughout the summer months. During First Fridays, we enjoy being a place of welcome and nourishment to our neighbors throughout the city. In previous years we have had food, live music and open our doors for folks to learn more about the church. This year we are excited to invite visitors to walk our new Reconciliation Labyrinth!

Gather, worship, reflect.
