JOIN A GROUP

We are excited to offer a variety of small groups this year. Many will look familiar and are just under a new umbrella of our learning and life mission. We are also offering new groups, including six Cathedral 201 groups! Our community is transforming from a place of attenders to a place of authentic believers on mission!

For additional information about Groups at Christ Church, contact Minister of Christian Formation, Dr. Elizabeth Conrad at 859-254-4497 or elizabeth@ccclex.org.

While great care and support of one another is done within our small groups, we also offer prayer and pastoral care to those in need. Please contact the church office to be added to our prayer list, or pray with a prayer minister during communion on Sundays. If you have an emergency after our regular hours, please call 859-699-2305. Leave a message and a priest will return your call.
 

Cathedral 101

Sundays beginning September 16, 10:00-10:50am in the Dean’s Conference Room, 3rd Floor

Cathedral 101 is designed to be a safe authentic connection for people to have a conversation about faith. It’s not a Bible study and it’s not a LifeGroup. It is a conversation that will help somebody, as they are on their faith journey, know God is for them and so is this church. Questions? Ask the Reverend Brent Owens bowens@ccclex.org or 859-254-4497.
