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.

Current Study:

For four weeks starting February 10, Becky Coleman will lead What About Our Money? A Faith Response, which explores how we relate to money within the context of our faith. Through this connection between our faith and our money, we will discover how to live closer to God and God’s people, even in our North American culture that is so deeply defined by money. We will learn about the biblical foundation of abundance (sufficiency), which stands in opposition to the scarcity narrative our culture tells us from the time we are very young.

 

Children's Church

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.
