Adult Faith Formation - Fall 2017
We “form” faith throughout our life span. We form faith in many settings: home, church, “the world” (including our electronic world). We form faith in our connections with people who are similar to and also different from us. We form faith in getting better connected to ourselves. The hour following our Sunday worship has opportunities for adult faith formation. Grab a beverage and reconnect with others in our community – or take it to the library and connect with some good books.
Facilitated faith formation offers a variety of topics relevant to our faith community within and beyond Stirling. We’d love to have you participate in some (or all) of the following:
September 10 & 17
How have you experienced church? Deepen your connection with others in our Stirling community.
