Education for All Ages
Some people come to faith through acts of compassion in the world, realizing these actions need a deeper foundation to keep them going. Other people come to faith seeking a deeper connection with God, then seeing their faith move towards acts of love in this world. Both of these pathways speak to our deep commitment to justice. We work to provide faith formation opportunities for people from all perspectives.
Igniting Our Faith is a series of short-term studies on a variety of topics, led by a variety of people. We know it is hard to commit to a full year of a faith formation class, and that there are different ways to explore and deepen our faith. This group meets in the parlor, upstairs at the end of the hall, at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays.
Igniting Our Faith is primarily intended for adult participants; however, older children and youth are welcome to give it a try and see if it's a good fit for them.
