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.
From Faith to Justice
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.
Current Topic: "A Crazy, Holy Grace," on loss and healing, through April 29.
The study aims to educate us about the local housing crisis, remind us of our call to care for those on the margins, and equip us as individuals and as a group to act for justice in housing systems.
Children age 4 through 5th grade are invited to attend children’s church after the children’s message in worship on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays. Children remain in worship as a type of education on communion Sundays and special occasions.
A nursery is available for children up to age 3.
From Justice to Faith
Johnny Jones and Brent Holmberg lead a hot topics discussion in the fellowship hall downstairs every Sunday at 9:15 a.m. Each week they focus on a different controversial topic, with the understanding that listening to one another is more important than being right.
Past topics include gun violence, drug laws, and taxes. If there’s a topic you would like to cover, just bring it up with Johnny or Brent.
