Engagement

Outreach

Seventh Street Christian Church is deeply dedicated to supporting local and global missions. This happens through generous financial gifts, as well as, volunteering, hands on activities or the collection of resources. Most of our outreach ministries focus on food insecurity, such as: FEEDMORE, preparing monthly meal at Liberation Veterans Services, and CARITAS.

Small Groups

Many members choose to participate in small groups. These groups help people stay engaged through prayer, bible study and more specific outreach projects. Each small group is unique, catering to the group’s interests. (some are more social than spiritual! ☺)

Communal Activities

We love to have fun at SSCC. While the pandemic tried to stifle our fun, we still found ways to come together: Fire pits, Trunk or Treat, trivia, movie nights, concerts.

Spiritual Education

The traditional Sunday School model lost momentum during the pandemic. We moved to offering spiritual educational opportunities throughout the week or during special times of the year.

Current offerings:

New Testament Class (weekly on Tuesdays 3:00-4:30, in person)

Basic survey class currently offered over 8 weeks.

Lectionary Lab (weekly on Tuesdays, 10:00-11:00 AM, Zoom)

Discuss the upcoming Sunday scripture with the pastor and help craft the sermon!

Theology on Tap (monthly, Thursdays, 6:00-8:00 PM, in person)

Fun and informal conversation about current topics. Location changes.

Seasonal Classes:

Study on Job


Led by Rabbi Knopf (Temple Beth El) & Reverend Hollie Woodruff (Seventh Street Christian Church)
3 Sundays: Jan. 23, Jan. 30, and Feb. 6 at 7:30pm on Zoom

The Book of Job is one of the most challenging and controversial books of the Bible. What has this confounding text meant to Jews and Christians throughout history? And what might it have to offer for people of faith in our time? Join us as we explore the Book of Job through an interfaith lens!

Lent Study: Faith and Fermentation

During Sunday afternoons in Lent, we will meet to consider the intersectionality of spiritual formation, and the process of fermentation. We will do this through prayer, conversation and actively learning and making food and drink that goes through a fermentation process; from beer and bread to Kombucha and soy sauce. Fermentation is the process in which some kind of catalyst (yeast, bacteria, etc.) transforms a food from one form into another. A fresh, unstable food is converted into a food that can last for a very long time, a food which can be preserved in long seasons where that food is not available. For those long seasons when our faith is tested, it is important for us to prepare our hearts – to convert a shallow, fresh faith into one which can persevere until new life arises again.
