Growing our spiritual lives is one of the primary benefits of being a part of a church community. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved most of our formation activities online for everyone’s safety. We don’t stop growing and learning during these unusual times; the way we do this just has changed until it is safe for us to meet together in person. Growth happens when we aren’t even paying attention sometimes. But paying attention, reflecting with others, allows our spiritual growth to take root in our lives and impact both our own and our community’s life. To receive the Zoom links to these programs, please send an email to the church office. Here is what is currently happening:
Adult Forums at 10am Sundays via Zoom

The group at Christ Church is likely to be held every other week on a weeknight and will require a commitment to readings, films and participation in the group.
