Faith Formation

Growing as a Christian is the journey of a lifetime, and it happens best when we're on the journey together. More than coming to church once a week, being a Christian is about our whole lives - at home, at work, and the everyday ethics that come from following Jesus.

St. Pauls offers many different opportunities to engage your mind and feed your spirit: On Sunday mornings at 9:30 we explore a variety of topics from great theologians to spirituality. Bible studies meet once a month on Saturday morning and Sunday evening. There are seasonal reading groups, series for Advent and Lent, and Christianity 101 for young adults. Engaging in ongoing faith formation results in a rich lifetime of growth as a Christian.
