Essentials Course

We gather on a Friday night and Saturday morning to dig into the Scriptures together. The course is all about Jesus and what it means to be his disciples – becoming like him, with others, under his rule. We strive for an expression of “mere Christianity” at Church of the Cross, so this course will cover ground that will be useful for anyone who follows Jesus in any context. At the same time, we live out the Christian essentials in a particular context (Boston) and in a particular way (in the Anglican tradition, with Neighborhood Groups, etc.) Those particulars will be a regular part of our conversations in this course.

The course includes teaching, discussion, and small-group interaction around the following themes: Gospel, discipleship, worship, community, mission, and catechesis. Our engagement with these themes is grounded in Scripture, and each session has supplemental readings that provide an opportunity for further reflection.
