Spiritual Formation is known by many names, but whatever the name, it describes the process Christians experience as we grow into the person God designed us to be.
“Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel” (Jeremiah 18:6).
We are all clay in the Potter’s hand, being formed in His image and according to His perfect will.
Spiritual formation is not something we do, it’s who we are. It is the care and nurture of our soul. We nurture our souls through:
PRAYER: Opportunities are provided throughout the week for participation in Prayer groups and for individual meditative prayer on Wednesday evening from 5:30-6:30PM.
WORSHIP: Worship Services are held every Sunday at 10 AM (weather permitting). Masks are required.
SCRIPTURE AND STUDY: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:2).
Through the discipline of study we immerse ourselves in the thoughts of other Christians and examine our own beliefs and attitudes in light of God’s truth. Three Adult Bible Study classes are available on Sunday morning at 10AM. and an evening study is held on Sunday at 5PM. Classes are available for children from age 2 through 7th grade.
SOLITUDE: The greatest threat to spiritual growth is not creating enough white space in our calendars and our heads to spend listening to God. Members and friends are encouraged to spend time each day in solitude listening to God.
FELLOWSHIP: While it is important to have time in solitude, it is equally essential to spend time in Christian community and fellowship. We do this through our worship and study experiences and through our 5th Sunday potluck lunch where we come together to share food and conversation with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
SERVICE: “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should also do as I have done for you.” (John 13:14-15).
When we serve others we practice the discipline of humility. Please see the Missions and Outreach page for opportunities to serve.
