Adult formation is an important part of who we are as a community of faith. Since we believe that faith is a life long process of becoming, we see Adult formation as a journey with a few signs to point the way.
Jesus himself continued to grow and change as he developed his ministry so are we called to continue to grow, even as adults. Below you will find the latest Adult offerings. Please join us for a class. You never know, it might change your life.

LENTEN SERIES 2024 will be a Zoom study of Amy-Jill Levine’s book Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week. Book description: Jesus’ final days were full of risk. Every move he made was filled with anticipation, danger, and te potential for great loss or great reward. Jesus risked his reputation when he entered Jerusalem in a victory parade. He risked his life when he dared to teach in the Temple. His followers risked everything when they left behind their homes, or anointed him with costly perfume. We take risks as we read and re-read these stories, finding new meanings and new challenges. Meets 4-5 Wednesdays in Lent.
