Parish Retreat Registration Open
Our annual parish retreat will take place at Highland Lakes Camp in Spicewood on Oct 29-31! This year’s theme is called, Voices of the Parish, an invitation to witness how our parish has been shaped by God through our stories. Beginning with a meal and live music on Friday evening, the retreat is a relaxed rhythm of free time to be with friends and family, structured gatherings for learning together, and a really special time of worship on Sunday morning. Registration is now open. We are monitoring COVID-19 trends as we approach the retreat dates.

Neighborhood Pods for Moms
Our Neighborhood Pods for our “Moms of Little Ones” group (MOLO) were a huge encouragement in the spring! This fall, we’re expanding this opportunity of connection to all moms with kids in school. These semi-structured small groups are located conveniently close to where you live. Pods meet for playdates, coffee, evening hangouts or other fun ways to engage in friendship. Register here. Contact Juliet with questions.
Gender & Sexuality ClassWednesday, September 29
Christianity has much to say about our bodies and how we honor the Lord through our sexuality with a holy and joyful obedience to the Lord. This fall Christ Church is offering a discipleship-oriented class exploring God's vision for sexuality throughout the whole of Scripture. We will examine the biblical view of sexuality, marriage, singleness, and chastity using Nancy Pearcey's book, Love Thy Body. We'll meet Sept 29, Oct 13, Oct 27, and Nov 10. Register here.
