Adult Spiritual Formation
Our spiritual formation as a follower of Jesus takes place as we respond to the work of the Holy Spirit to transform us into the likeness of Jesus Christ. While it is always God's work in us, spiritual growth depends on our willingness to change and requires our active cooperation along with the help of others within the community of faith. While no one can cause another person’s spiritual growth, our desire is to foster an environment that encourages growth. Throughout the Bible we see clear evidence of the importance of healthy relationships. The example of Jesus and his first followers and the experience of Jesus’ followers ever since, convinces us that growth happens best in healthy community with others. There is a wonderful freedom that comes as we join together to share life, to study and to serve together.
This is why we seek to foster spiritual transformation in the context of community. An important way we do this is through GROW classes that take place on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 10:45am and especially through our small group ministry that we call CommunityLife. For people exploring the Christian faith for the first time or those who want to refresh their faith we offer the Alpha Course. Being formed in the image of Christ is essential if we are to be available for God to use us to bear the good news of the gospel to the world around us.

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:24-25
