Current Session

Spring 2023

Adult christian formation


Our faith formation is often rooted in how we experience God. Our God is a generous God who wants to be known and who initiates encounters with us in a variety of ways. Our job as the church, the priesthood of all believers, is to help one another be alert to the places in which we may experience God through the neighbor, through beauty and creativity, by actively listening to one another in conversation, and through creation care.
