Adult Faith Formation Ministry

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”  (2 Peter 3:18a). Deepening our faith strengthens our discipleship. We believe that God calls us to be life-long learners. So we plan for opportunities to strengthen our relationship with God and invite all to participate.
