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.

The old adage goes: “Never discuss religion or politics in polite conversation.” But we’re out to prove that we can have respectful conversations about topics we often disagree about and that they’ll grow us together instead of dividing us. Join us for four weeks as we practice respectful dialogue on:

•    Best Practices for Respectful Conversation (January 23)
•    Immigration (January 30)
•    Faith and Politics (February 6)
•    Gun Violence (February 13)
​​​​​​​

If you plan to come to any of the conversations, we strongly encourage you to come to our first gathering on January 23. This will give us a shared set of practices that will guide us in respectful conversation during the entire series. At the beginning of each session, we will review those principles and covenant together to practice them in our conversations.

We’ll gather on Wednesday nights in Fellowship Hall from 7-8:30pm from January 23-February 13.

“Starting Point” is a brand new 8-week small group that will meet from January 20-March 10. This group of 8-11 people will meet at the church after worship on Sundays at 11:15 for an hour of sharing, prayer, and community-building. It’s all about growing faith and deepening relationships with each other. Starting Point isn’t a “drop-in” group. That is, those who sign up to participate should plan to attend all 8 weeks (though it’s ok to miss a week or two because you’re sick or on vacation). Let us know if you’d like to sign up or learn more about this group or other small groups in our church. 


Every Wednesday (September- May) from 7:15 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. in Social Hall
Led by Rev. Amy Heinrich. The Winter 2018-19 study is Parker Palmer’s “Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit.”
