Our hope is to foster lifelong spiritual growth for our congregation and our community through a variety of faith formation opportunities. All are welcome!
Sunday morning faith formation at 9:45 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
(9:00 a.m. in the summer – one class in Room 203)
The John Knox Fellowship (John Knox Room)
Drawing on scripture, denominational tenets and a quest to understand God’s call to us in the world, this class combines lecture and discussion in a weekly format for adults of all ages. Led by a teaching team of class members and guest speakers, this is a group with varied interests and aspirations, a commitment to life-long learning, friendly relations and open communications. Whether it is exploring particular scripture, a Christian perspective on social issues, a General Assembly position paper or the Holy Land as an armchair tourist, participants seek to grow in their faith as they commit to being active disciples in the world. This call to service is demonstrated through missions and special class projects. Fellowship is enhanced through occasional social gatherings, group trips and discussions that build strong personal relationships in this community of faith.
Enrichment Class (Room 228)
For over 25 years, the Enrichment Class has studied a variety of topics from atonement to world religions. The discussion-based class, led by Henry Carrouth and Bill Massey, runs year-round, even through the summer months. Everyone is encouraged to share their opinions as we affirm each other on this faith journey. The Epiphany party held each January is one of the social events for the class each year. Class members actively support missions, like rebuilding New Orleans after Katrina or building a wheelchair ramp for a local cancer patient or adopting a Christmas cheer family. If you are looking for a place to grow your faith and build new relationships, try the Enrichment Class.
The Point (Room 227)
We are professionals and students, parents and friends, and we are committed to asking hard questions of faith and walking together in love. For everything we do and everything we are, we find ourselves asking “What’s the POINT?” and we know better than to always expect answers.
What we do know is that the point – the purpose – of our study and worship and fellowship and faith journeying is that God has called us into Christian community and that we are doing our best to live out that call. We are opening our hearts and opening our minds to be a part of whatever God has called for with this crazy and wonderful group of people. Come join us as we search, pray, and discover as “The Point.” Find us on Facebook!
