Christian Education Formation
Formation of a Christian life is serious stuff that won't work if we take ourselves too seriously.
Formation seeks to balance the intellectual content of
faith with the deeper resources of our shared experience. It informs not only the mind but the
heart and all the rest of us. It hopes to move us in this common effort to
say, "Do you think we could?"
as opposed to, "Do I have to?"
Classes and study groups during the Christian education hour at 9 a.m. on Sunday mornings
and during the week provide a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth. Forums are planned for outstanding
speakers and community leaders to share their ideas on Sunday mornings. Child care is provided for infants and toddlers,
and education for preschool and kindergarten-aged children is available during the 9 a.m. Christian education hour.
