Faith Formation is more than a trendy new way to refer to Christian education or Sunday school.

“We cannot attain the presence of God because we’re already totally in the presence of God. What’s absent is awareness.”
Richard Rohr, theologian and author

Raising our awareness of God’s loving and living presence in our lives is at the heart of Faith Formation.
It involves practices that are individual and communal, and is a lifelong pursuit.
Our Center for Faith Formation is dedicated to helping equip congregations to nurture this awareness.
