Adult Faith Formation
Two of our Core Values are Life-Long Journey and Ministry of All Believers. We believe that we are all on a life-long spiritual journey of learning, growth, discovery, and connection. We need to be equipped, guided, encouraged and challenged in both our life-long journey and our call to be co-conspirators with Christ in the ministry building of sharing God's love with all the world. Adult education offerings provide opportunities for us to engage our minds and spirits (and sometimes our bodies, too!) in the life-long journey of the spirit. You can read more extensively about our Adult Faith Formation opportunities here.
Please reach out to our Pastor if you have any questions or ideas for how we can widen the circle of connection and love.
