How do we grow in our relationship with God? How do we love one another better? The purpose of Adult Formation is to shape and equip people to lead lives in the image and likeness of God. Through weekly classes, bible studies, and retreats, Adult Formation seeks to help people follow Jesus and be effective witnesses in a complex world. We desire to know and understand Scripture and grow spiritually in ways that are relevant and applicable to our daily lives.
