NOV 30, DEC 7, 14, 21 – BOOK DISCUSSION: WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO BE A CHRISTIAN—and why does Christian community matter?

We’ll discuss what it means to be a Christian (as opposed to think about, know about, or even talk about Christianity) using Rowan Williams’ new book, Being Christian (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2014). Formerly Archbishop of Canterbury, Williams (now Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge) offers a four-part meditation on Christian discipleship, focused on Baptism, Eucharist, Scripture, and Prayer. This four-part class is ideal for people new to the Christian faith or long-time Christians who are curious about why Christian practice and community matter. Copies of the book are available from Fr Stephen Holton or for order online. Email Fr Stephen Holton (sholton@gracechurchnyc.org) for more information, to sign up, or to reserve a copy. Please read Chapter 1, Baptism, for our first discussion Nov 30.

JAN 4 – AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS

The Adult Choir offers this dramatic sacred opera by Gian Carlo Menotti in the context of evening prayer. Originally written over 50 years ago as a television piece, it has become a loved part of the season. Please join us for this special offering. Sunday, January 4th at 4 pm in the Church. Visit our music page here for more information on special musical events.

JAN 11, 18, 25 – NEWCOMERS’ CLASSES

Sundays, Jan 11, 18 and 25, from 12:45 – 1:45 pm in the Reception Room. Childcare for children aged 0-3 is available in the Nursery, upon request by Sunday, Jan 4 to Melissa Spindler at mspindler@gracechurchnyc.org. Additional Newcomer classes will be held in April.
