Upcoming Events within our walls and beyond

December Events

December 17th:

A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was first held on Christmas Eve 1918 at King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England. It was planned by Eric Milner-White, who at the age of 34 had just been appointed Dean of King’s. After his experience as an army chaplain, he was convinced that the Church of England needed a more imaginative worship. The service includes 9 short Bible readings, interspersed with Christmas Carols. A revision of the Order of Service was made in 1919, involving rearrangement of the lessons, and from that date the service has always begun with the hymn ‘Once in Royal David’s City’. It is an event that the entire family can enjoy and further enrich your worship experience of Advent!

Sunday School for All Ages

Adult Sunday School: To Be a christian, an anglican catechism

As Fr Chris mentioned during our worship service , in our most recent research, the publisher has informed us that the book we will be using for Sunday School, is out of print. So we are unable to place an order of any kind through them.

So, here are your NEW options for obtaining a copy:

  1. You may still download a free copy (MS Word or PDF format) HERE
  2. If you want to reimburse the church $8.50 per copy for a spiral-bound version (the same physical size as the leather bound volume), send us an email HERE.
I addition, Fr. Chris has requested we all bring our Bibles to Sunday school class with us! It is "school," after all. There's something to be said for feeling the true weight of the words we study and and being able to touch the lines that have engraved tablets of stone, that we might engrave them in our hearts.

As a reminder, this Catechism has several great uses:

  1. Preparing yourself and/or a child to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
  2. Learning about the Christian Faith yourself, so you can share your faith with someone else, and have a resource to help you do it!
  3. Bringing a friend to CTR this year, so they can learn more about what we believe and why we believe it.

For more information or questions on these events please either e-mail the church or call 817 386-3000.
