LIFE Ministries

LIFE Daytime Activities

Focused on both members of our church and individuals within our community, Adult LIFE Ministries are designed for adults seeking to participate in daytime activities at Christ Church.

Fridays • 9 – 10:30 am • Office Area

Join this group as they knit/crochet to create tangible expressions of the prayers of our church for those in need of comfort, healing, assurance, and a reminder of God’s presence. Bring knitting needles (size 11 or larger suggested) or a crochet hook. If you don’t know how to crochet or knit, we will teach you! Can’t make it to our gatherings? Consider working independently on prayer shawls and then donating them to be blessed and distributed.

Put on some comfortable clothes and try out this gentle exercise class. Men and women practice movements to improve breathing, flexibility, and balance. Donations are accepted. Class is also available by zoom.

Contact Jan Randolph janr@christchurchsl.org

Every Friday • 1 – 2 pm • Brookdale First Colony; 16900 Lexington Blvd in Sugar Land

This is a weekly community Bible study. Those attending sing a few hymns, share joys and concerns, pray, and explore scriptural passages. As we reflect on God’s Word we are assured of His greatness and our need, and strengthened as His kingdom people. Lessons are presented by Jan Randolph.

Third Wednesday of Each Month • 9:30 am • Faith Corner

If you love to read, you will probably enjoy discussing your experiences with books with others in a book club that will open you up to different perspectives you might have missed. You will meet new people and be encouraged to read a variety of genres. Taking the time to enjoy yourself, have fun with books and other people is a reward in itself.

The Gathering

First Thursdays • 10 am – 1:30 pm

This ministry is for loved ones with memory loss, specifically mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, other dementias or cognitive impairment. Caregivers can receive respite, a break from caregiving responsibilities, during this time, or join the caregivers’ support group, while their loved ones will participate in 3.5 hours of planned activities such as games, music, arts and crafts, lunch, exercise and socialization. We meet once a month on the first Thursday from 10 am – 1:30 pm at Christ Church Sugar Land, 3300 Austin Parkway.
