Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.
Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes counter-cultural life in a secular world.
“Formation” is the process of making Christian disciples. Sunday School (for all ages) is a piece of that process.
As Jesus was walking along, he saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up and followed him. – Mark 2:14

Saturday nights – Bible Survey
The Holy Bible is the fundamental text of our faith. It reflects the experiences and growing awareness of human beings as we have sought to relate to our Creator. Knowing the story of the Bible is key to an informed life of discipleship.
Join us on Saturday evenings from 4pm to 5 or 5.30 as we read through the whole story of the Bible. We will be using a book called The Path which consists of excerpts from the NRSV translation of the Bible (the version we read in our assemblies) along with some notes to help transition between the sections and prompts for study and application. Participants will be expected to spend about an hour reading and interacting with the text at home each week to prepare for our conversations together.
You can get your own copy of The Path through your local bookstore or by ordering directly from Forward Movement. It costs about $20.
Alternatively, Forward Movement provides a pdf version of The Path that you can download and read on any device.
If you prefer to read from another version of the Bible, you are welcome to do that as well, using the scripture references from The Path. You are still encouraged to download the pdf so that you can see what we’re reading and use the study helps at the end of each chapter.
