Spiritual Growth Opportunities

protestantprayerbeadsSpiritual Formation

The Apostle Paul writes in his letter to the church in Galatia about the fruits of the spirit being love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22). Spiritual formation engages in the practices and prayer in partnership with our Creator to produce the fruits of the spirit in both the individual and community.

Spiritual formation requires our willingness to be open to one another, to the realm of ‘the more’ and the discipline of practice. It is in this relationship of community, spirit and repetitious exercises we develop and mature equipping the children of God for service.

Sunday mornings offer opportunities for growth for all ages.

Adult Sunday School will begin again Sunday, Feb. 11, 11:45am – 1pm. Bring DVDs, books, or ideas you’d like the group to watch or read.  Beginning in March we’ll meet on first and third Sundays, 11:45 – 1.  Questions?  Ask Karen.
A Bible Study group meets every Wednesday from noon to 1 in the Fellowship Hall.  And the first Thursday of each month is a small group prayer meeting at 12:15 in the sanctuary.

Children are escorted from 10:30 worship to an environment for age appropriate experiences of learning through story, art and play. Worship plays an integral part in the community’s spiritual formation and opportunities to practice the fruits of the spirit in joy-filled service are made available through various local, regional, national and international partnerships sponsored by our congregation.
