Faith Basics – The 101 Series on Spiritual Growth
Deepening one’s own faith in God can seem so overwhelming. Many questions linger in our hearts and minds. So much sadness, devastation, and injustice is in our world. We can usually commit to some combination of working out, helping kids with their homework, meeting work deadlines, staying in touch with friends and family, and making sure the bills get paid. Yet to commit to a deeper faith in God requires time, courage, and vulnerability with God and with ourselves. Many times we would rather be the commander of our own fate than risk any potential disappointment.
Good news! God can handle anything we share with God! And can do so with as little as a mustard seed size bit of effort from any of us. Perhaps you are like so many of us that just needs some foundational building blocks on which to grow. For those of us that can relate, our pastors will be leading us in a 4-part series of 101 level classes designed to address foundational faith disciplines by which we can commit and find ourselves growing greater in love with our Creator.
Each session will be led by one of the three clergy and will be taught in front of a live group of up to 18 people in an outdoor venue. Each session will also be recorded and released, along with study guide questions, on Sunday mornings at 11AM on October 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th so that anyone can gently enter the opportunity to gain understanding. If you are interested in participating in one of the recording sessions for the course, you many register through the corresponding links below. Please understand that capacity is strictly limited and will be adhered to. Also, while the times and dates are listed below, we will send an email to those that register with location and protocol instructions prior to the class session.
