Christian Education and Faith 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. Adult Christian Formation is at the heart of the church’s mission to the congregation and community. At David’s, we have built a growing tradition of strong adult education experiences. We offer opportunities that walk us through the Bible and other Christian Literature with an eye on how they apply and impact our daily lives. We offer learning experiences that include book studies, Bible studies, art studies, small group special interest Circles, workshops, speakers and much more! All of these things help us to discover our spiritual gifts and direct us toward formation and transformation of our lives in Christ.
Join us on the Journey!
Adult Spiritual Searchers Group – Wednesdays at 6:45 p.m.
At David’s we recognize that the spiritual journey is a lifelong experience of growth and discovery. Each Wednesday evening at 6:45 p.m. in the church library, the Adult Spiritual Searchers Group gathers to explore faith in a wide range of ways. Recently it involved a book study of Marcus Borg’s book, Convictions. Currently, the study is utilizing the video series, Living the Questions, which brings some of the most current Biblical and theological minds right into our church community. Always open to anyone on the journey, this group stretches the heart and mind in the spiritual search.
Lectionary Bible Study (What’s that?) on Mondays and Tuesdays...
Pastor Dave leads two Lectionary Bible studies each week, one on Monday morning in the library at 10 a.m. and the other at noon on Tuesdays in the Quilters room (right off the main hallway as you come in the building from the parking lot). The Revised Common Lectionary is a series of readings for each Sunday over a three year period. Each Sunday there are two readings from the Old Testament (a general reading and a Psalm) and two from the New Testament (a Gospel reading and an Epistle [letter] lesson).
These readings form the basis for the traditional worship service each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. If you are looking for a way to connect your personal story with the larger story of faith, these studies do just that. Whether you are a newcomer to Bible study or have been doing it for years, these gatherings have a way of eliciting the broad wisdom which the gathered community brings.
