Spiritual Formation

spiritual formation in community

Learning to live and grow in community is one of the greatest gifts that Jesus has called us to. From large gatherings to smaller groups, the necessity for community is something abundantly evident throughout all of Christian history and the scriptures. While all our Spiritual Formation classes and experiences are designed with community building in mind, there is a special kind of community that can be experienced in a smaller groups, especially those that meet in homes, coffee shops, or other similar locations. Sound appealing? Consider joining a community group!


There are many resources out there to help us in our spiritual formation. One such resource is the Bible Project.

"The Bible Project is my uncontested favorite resource for Bible study that is out there. For five years in college and seminary, I studied the Bible in rigorous classes. Still, I learn something new every day when I use the Bible Project. I often use the Bible Project app to read scripture, listen to podcasts about specific books or topics in the Bible, and I have even taken a couple of their classes. To anyone who is serious about growing in their study of the bible, my very first resource recommendation is Bible Project. I unapologetically want everyone to know about it and use it."

For many people, spiritual direction has been a critical practice in their walk with Jesus. Simply put, spiritual direction is a practice that helps individuals discern the presence, activity, and voice of God in their lives for the purpose of growing in Christlikeness and in relationship with Jesus.

We all, at times, need someone to help us through a difficult period in our lives. The Lord has gifted specific men and women to give counsel, encouragement, and to come alongside us as we work through our struggles.


Practicing the way

In order to grow in our walk with Jesus, we need to practice following Jesus. That is what the Practicing the Way series is all about. It is a series of classes that allows us to learn about and ultimately practice spiritual disciplines.
