Here at Christ the King, we are deeply committed to and passionate about living faithfully into our baptismal covenant by "continuing in the apostles' teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of the bread, and in the prayers." In addition to our Sunday morning Christian formation offerings, there are several opportunities for adult formation during the week. In each of the below offerings, there are opportunities to grow closer to God and to one another.

Heaven and Earth: Advent and the Incarnation DVD Series
What is the Season of Advent really all about? Watch out. God is on the way! It’s not within our own power to make a fresh
start. If we’re to have a future different from the past, it must come as a gift, something not of our own devising. What we need is a God who refuses to be trapped in eternity, a God who not only cares about us but is willing to show up among us and do something with us, here, now. In Heaven and Earth: Advent and the Incarnation, Rev. Dr. Will Willimon introduces you to the God who does just that, bringing heaven to earth and changing everything. In Advent we celebrate and anticipate the earth-shaking, life-transforming good news that God is coming to us. Watch out. Get ready. God is on the way. Contact John French at (850) 420-9803 or email@example.com with questions.

Noonday Prayer, Lunch and Discussion
Join Fr. Richard every Wednesday for Noonday Prayer in the Church followed by lunch and discussion in Sandefur Hall. We will be discussing The Rev’d Tish Harrison Warren’s book “Advent: The Season of Hope.” This book is the first of a series in the recently-released Fullness of Time series, which focuses on the seasons of the Church year. From the book cover:
“We tend to think of Advent as the season of anticipation before Christmas – and while it is that, it’s also much more. Throughout its history, the church has observed Advent as a preparation not only for the first coming of Christ in his incarnation but also for his second coming at the last day. It’s also about a third coming of Christ to meet us in our present moment, to make us holy by his Word and sacrament.”
Fellowship: 8:00 - 8:30 am
