Spiritual Formation and Growth


“Becoming Christlike is the ultimate goal for the well-formed, informed, and transformed Christian disciple” (Christian Education: Planning for Lifelong Faith Formation, p. 6). To help our members achieve this goal, the Spiritual Formation Team works with our ministers and church leaders to develop and implement a variety of spiritual growth opportunities designed to deepen one’s faith and to provide direction for a lifelong spiritual journey and daily walk with God. These include small group studies, prayer walks, movie nights, Bible studies, book club, prayer groups, and family retreats. For more independent study, a library of books, videos, and music is also available at the church in the balcony of the Gathering Area.

Epic of Eden, by Sandra Richter

Legendary Bible stories take on new life as Dr. Richter clearly articulates their part of a larger pattern, revealing an even deeper significance for the tales individually.  This study is ideal for those wanting a meaty study of biblical text, as would anyone eager for a strategic grasp of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Old Testament and how it relates to God's activity in the present.  

Led by Pastors Wofford and Green, this 12-week study will begin August 13 with a light dinner served at 5:00 p.m. and study time 5:30-7:00.


Moses:  In the Footsteps of the Reluctant Prophet, by Adam Hamilton

Turn your own reluctance into boldness as you examine the significant challenges facing Moses and how God shaped his character and life in powerful ways. 

This DVD driven churchwide small group study will begin in September and continue for six weeks.  For more information, or to sign up to lead a small group, contact Pastor Cindy.
