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.
We need your input!
There will be an open forum for discussion adult education opportunities (including Igniting Our Faith) on Sunday October 21. This will take place in the parlor during the regular time (9:15–10:00 a.m.).
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.
Special Guest (October 28):
One of the most important questions a church can ask is, "Who is My Neighbor?" We will be learning more about one of our neighbors, El Colegio Charter High School, from Norma Garcés, the executive director of the school. El Colegio is just the blocks away from Living Spirit and is one of the schools we've supported in the past. Come hear stories about our neighbors and learn about the gifts that El Colegio brings to the community.
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.
