Come to him, a living stone,
though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight,
and like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house,
to be a holy priesthood,
to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
– 1 Peter 2: 4-5
The Episcopal Church defines formation as “lifelong growth in the knowledge, service, and love of God as followers of Christ…informed by Scripture, Tradition, and Reason.” The Reverend Dr. Pamela Dolan suggested this definition: “Christian formation is a lifelong process, occurring in community, that shapes you into the person God created you to be.” At All Saints’ we talk about becoming living stones, precious to God, allowing ourselves to be built into a spiritual house. All are good definitions!
All Saints’ has an amazing church school for children and youth. Yes, there are important lessons, but there are also friends, values and fun. Safety is always a priority. Please follow the Church School link to learn more:
Adult Formation includes a variety of opportunities to learn, pray, support a ministry, share in community life, and worship in fellowship with other Christians. Please follow the Adult Formation link to learn more:
