Faith Formation for Adults at Christ Church Episcopal

Faith formation is the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, and others. At Christ Church, we believe in providing many different opportunities for education, worship, and fellowship for adults. We hope to nurture your spiritual lives, to change the way we all think and act. Education and formation opportunities are offered throughout the year, including new small groups, classes, Bible studies, retreats, and more.

Over the next program year, Christ Church will intentionaly seek "The Way of Love," a program of discipleship of The Episcopal Church. We will be exploring the Way of Love in forums, with online resources, and connecting our various ministries to the seven practices of the Way of Love.

At Christ Church, we seek to nurture spiritual formation that changes the way we think and act. Spiritual formation comes through worship, prayer, service, fellowship, and education.
