What is Discovering Christ?
Discovering Christ is a seven-week experience where anyone and everyone, from the baptized in the pews to the unbaptized, is invited to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ. Discovering Christ helps people enter into or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, experience the love of God the Father, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children.
What does a typical session look like?
Discovering Christ consists of seven weekly sessions and a retreat day. The weekly sessions include four components:
1. a complimentary meal: the meal is a time to foster relationships and grow in friendship with one another,
2. prayer time: the prayer time consists of singing together a couple of songs that help the group become comfortable praying together,
3. a video teaching: The video sessions proclaim, with beauty and simplicity, the core Gospel message and invite participants to make a personal response to Jesus Christ,
4. and small group discussion: small groups are places for people to freely discuss what they heard in the teaching.
