Christian Formation

Christian Formation

Following Christ is more than membership in a congregation. It’s a journey of growth and an exploration of your relationship with God. In order to grow and strengthen your faith as a disciple of Jesus, we have many opportunities for formation. Please contact the church office for details about gathering via Zoom during the pandemic.

The Great Emergence – Book Study Group July 6, 13, and 20th 6:30 – 7:30 pm 

The Great Emergence was written well before the pandemic which has changed so much in the lives of our churches, unpacks the chaos of contemporary upheaval. Written by  Phyllis Tickle, she writes, “Every five hundred years, the church cleans out its attic, and has a giant rummage sale.” It’s been 500 years since the Reformation… and the church is in the midst of huge changes. Let’s discuss what those changes might be and how we can do God’s will as we recognize them.

You will need to purchase the book and download the study guide. Then let Rev. Lyn Briggs know you’ll be joining us for these 3 conversations.
