Class Schedule

Because Christ the King Parish is focusing on the Alpha Course this fall and winter, Upper Room will not be offering any classes. We encourage anyone who is looking for the Life in the Spirit Seminar and who has not taken it before to consider taking Alpha instead, where essentially the same content will be included. If you are looking for a way to grow in your gifts, we encourage you to volunteer with Alpha to put your gifts into practice.

Upper Room’s next classes will be held in Easter Season, 2018. We’ll offer a Life in the Spirit Seminar and another class for those who’ve already taken the LSS to grow in the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Feel free to listen to our past classes through the links below.

Hearing God in Conversation
Hearing God’s voice is key to having a relationship with Him and to using the charisms He gives us. This 6-week class taught by Sam Williamson will help you to grow in your ability to hear the Lord regularly in daily life. Even through silence He speaks. And yes, He speaks to everyone!

Gifts for the New Evangelization
Have you wondered what your spiritual gifts are? Would you like to use them for the New Evangelization? It’s been said that the only thing more difficult than using your gifts for evangelism is trying to evangelize without them! This class helps participants to identify their gifts and to learn more about how to use them. It offers teachings on the spiritual gifts and the opportunity to participate in small groups with others who have the same gifts. The Life in the Spirit Seminar is a prerequisite.

Walking in the Spiritual Gifts
This course inspires and equips participants to walk in the supernatural charisms as a way of life, especially to evangelize and to build up the body of Christ.  It expands on the Advanced Charisms Course.  For those who have already taken a Life in the Spirit Seminar or a Holy Spirit Seminar.
