Is your faith stuck in Kindergarten?  It's time to graduate to something MORE!  Faith Formation classes are offered for all ages every Sunday morning from 10am to 10:45am.  Don't neglect your spiritual growth.  Your spiritual health is just as important as your physical health!  Our dedicated teachers are excited about the abundant life available to us as followers of Christ.  And they want you to experience it, too, which is why they study and prepare to help you discover who God is, what He's saying and doing (yes, He still talks and acts!), what His plan is for the world and how your life intersects with that plan.  YOU are an important part of the process, as you share your own personal challenges, insights, doubts and victories with peers.  Don't miss this great opportunity to grow in your faith!
