ADULT FAITH FORMATION

Never Stop Growing. That's our motto for adult faith formation. Faith should be dynamic and transforming, not stagnant and lifeless. So we seek fresh ways to know God and one another by sharing, learning, and serving together.

Summer Church Wide Book Read - The Secret Message of Jesus 

It's not too late to join in on our church-wide summer book read-The Secret Message of Jesus by Brian McLaren. Over these next few weeks, we're sharing our thoughts and questions with each other in an online forum, and then we'll get together in person on August 11 for some lunch and discussion.
Read more about the book and order a copy here.
Then sign up here to let us know you're in and we'll send you info on how to access the online discussion forum.
