Adult Faith Formation
We learn, grow, and walk in the way of Christ.
Adult Faith Formation is offered in a myriad of ways and days, times, and seasons. We invite and support questioning, exploration, and wrestling with faith. Through a rich variety of programs for all stages of Christian development, we nurture and practice our core beliefs and are encouraged to live into our Baptismal promises. Programs include weekly Bible Study, Episcopal 101 (introduction to the Episcopal church), social justice programs like Sacred Ground, and Open Circles neighborhood groups that meet regularly for book study.
The Adult Faith Formation team meets monthly to pray together and plan upcoming offerings.
