Christian formation provides an environment where we learn about our sacred stories from biblical times and from the early church, and pay attention to where our new sacred stories are happening today. We listen for how these sacred stories and traditions interplay with our everyday lives, and by doing so, we become more attuned to it.

This is a life-long endeavor that takes many twists and turns, and where we end up may look completely different than where we thought we were heading. It’s good to have companions along the path, and so we gather in groups for formation.

Please join us Sunday mornings, September through June. All programs for those under 18 years old adhere to the diocesan Safe Church policy, and the nursery is available during Sunday morning formation.
