Adult Christian Formation Opportunities

The life of faith is an all-encompassing life. Our call is to love God with our whole beings.  This means we don’t love God with just our heart or just our strength. We love God with ALL of ourselves… including our minds. Westminster Presbyterian Church strives to offer our congregation the opportunity to study, learn and share in a collaborative, nurturing environment through an array of Christian Formation opportunities.  One-hour classes are typically held Fall through Spring and are available to all. Special Sunday evening seminars and other classes are also offered periodically. Read about our class offerings below!


 

Christian Formation Opportunities

 

Hybrid Bible Study – Sundays at 9:30 a.m. via Zoom and in-person Room 9

 

One of the ways that God speaks to us is through the scriptures. The Bible Study Class reads the sermon texts for that day’s worship service as a venue for hearing God’s message to us. By sharing our reflections, we gain a deeper understanding of our Lord and what we are called to be and do as God’s people.

 

Reconnections—Sundays at 9:45 a.m. in person

 

What does it look like to live a “Wholehearted Faith?” Join the Reconnections Class on Sunday mornings at 9:45 in Room 10 as we ask candid questions about the stories we’ve been told—and the stories we tell—about our faith, ourselves and our world. Wholehearted Faith is Rachel Held Evans’ posthumous book of essays after her untimely death in 2019—put together with the assistance of her friend Jeff Chu. All are welcome.

 

This book is for the doubter and the dreamer, the seeker and the sojourner, those who long for a sense of spiritual wholeness, as well as those who have been hurt by the Church but can’t seem to let go of the story of Jesus. Rachel wrestles with God’s grace and love, looks sparingly at what the Church is and does, and explores universal human questions about becoming and belonging. An unforgettable and intimate book.
