Spiritual Formation

"Cynicism is easy. Fear and shame – a piece of cake. But joy? Now that’s hard. We need each other for joy. That’s why we come to church! The stuff we proclaim here is too hard to believe alone."
- Rev. Natalie Webb

Spiritual Formation

___

From Sunday School for kids to Bibles and Bagels and Forums for adults, Sundays offer many opportunities to engage in meaningful conversations and active learning. Throughout the year (especially during Advent and Lent), we have weekday studies available as well. We also believe that spiritual formation occurs by living in community, and we have less structured fellowship opportunities for all ages each month. During this time of COVID-19, many of our events (e.g. Bibles and Bagels, game nights, and the monthly breakfasts) are being held virtually. See our Events page for the most up to date information about what is happening and where.
