God wants you to take your next step spiritually. That could mean taking steps toward belonging to our church faith family, completing your sacraments, committing to digging into the Bible each day, discovering how God wants to use you to help others, or just learning more about God’s plan for your life. Corpus Christi’s classes are all about those next steps…
CLASS 101 – Come and See (Discovering our Church Family)
This basic introduction to our church faith family is designed to clearly explain who and what Corpus Christi is. You’ll learn about the church’s teachings on salvation, our parish’s statements of purpose, and Corpus Christi’s strategy and structure. You’ll also hear about the five biblical purposes which are necessary to fulfilling God’s calling for your life, and the plans for the future of Corpus Christi. At the end of the class, you’ll be given the opportunity to sign our Core Values Covenant.
Here’s what people are saying about Class 101…
“Very informative, inspirational!” ` ~ Susan B.
“My impression of what I thought this class would be was entirely different…. Much more & greater!” ~ Yvonne C.
“Great overview of our church / our faith – looking forward to 201.” ~ Steffanie & Chris Z.
“This was a great refresher course for those of us who’ve probably taken Catholicism for granted, and really forgotten what it means to be Catholic, and not necessarily just as members of Corpus Christi. Really informative & pressure free environment!” ~ Alyssa E.
“Give it a chance – you’ll like it!” ~ Linda S.

CLASS 201 – Follow Me (Discovering My Spiritual Maturity)
Do you want to become more like Jesus? Class 201 will help you develop the habits you need to jumpstart your spiritual maturity. It will give you an overview of the five basic spiritual habits every Catholic needs in order to grow: daily time in God’s Word, prayer, the importance of the Sacraments and the Mass, tithing, and connecting with others (or fellowship).
PREREQUISITE: BECAUSE THE CLASSES BUILD ON EACH OTHER, YOU MUST ATTEND CLASS 101 BEFORE YOU CAN ATTEND CLASS 201.
CLASS 301 – Grow With Me (Discovering My Ministry)
We believe that every member of our church is a minister. God didn’t intend for ministry to be done by just those with seminary degrees….He’s called you too! Class 301 was designed to help you figure out which ministry fits you best – we call this “discovering your S.H.A.P.E” During this class, you will learn how you can use your Spiritual Gifts, Heart (passions), Abilities, Personality, and Experiences to minster to others.
PREREQUISITE: BECAUSE THE CLASSES BUILD ON EACH OTHER, YOU MUST ATTEND CLASSES 101 & 201 BEFORE YOU CAN ATTEND CLASS 301.
CLASS 401 – Go and Tell (Discovering My Life Mission)
God has designed you for a specific mission. Class 401 is designed to help you discover and dive into God’s mission field, learn how to see your life’s story through certain themes, and write down your personal spiritual journey. Best of all, you’ll see that being a “fisher of men and women” is one of the most exciting and rewarding things you can do in life!
PREREQUISITE: BECAUSE THE CLASSES BUILD ON EACH OTHER, YOU MUST ATTEND CLASS 101, 201 AND 301 BEFORE YOU CAN ATTEND CLASS 401.
Class 401 will begin in 2019
CLASS sessions are typically held simultaneously once a month on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 1pm – 5pm at Corpus Christi.
