Adult Ministries

Discover the joy of serving and connecting with others in ministry at Christ Church.


Community Groups

Sometimes called Small Groups or Life Groups, Community Groups at Christ Church are weekly fellowship groups that meet throughout Vero Beach on various weekdays and evenings. The groups focus on a topical Bible study, reflect on a sermon or teaching, or share some other faith-building discipline.

The group size of 7-12 people allows for more direct sharing and is ideal for those seeking opportunities to meet new friends and grow in the Christian faith.

For more information, please email the Church Office or call Fr. Hunter Van Wagenen at 772.562.8670.

Thursday Morning Bible Study

Among this diverse group are working professionals who are able to attend the Bible Study on Thursdays from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. The study includes in-depth teaching and open discussion, and all materials are provided at each class.

Women’s Bible Study

This group’s diversity in age and life experiences promotes spiritual growth and rich friendships. Always open to newcomers, a previous knowledge of the Bible is not required. They meet weekly on Wednesdays at 9:30 - 11:00 am from September through June.

Daughters of the Holy Cross

The Daughters of the Holy Cross is a religious order of women who take a solemn, life-long vow to live faithfully by a Rule of Prayer and a Rule of Service.

These women have committed their lives to the work and service of Jesus Christ and they pray daily for our church, its clergy, the Order, and others in need. Guided by the Holy Spirit, they share the gospel message through word and deed and enjoy their bond of sisterhood.

DOHC meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 11:00 am followed by a casual lunch. To attend a meeting as a guest, please contact Bernadette Longden at 262-498-3750.

For more information on the meetings or joining the Order, please email the Church Office or call 772.562.8670.

This interdenominational prayer group consists of mothers and other women whose loved ones are enlisted in the US Military.
