Spiritual formation is the activity of the Holy Spirit which molds our lives into the likeness of Jesus Christ. This likeness is one of deep intimacy with God and genuine compassion for all of creation. The Spirit works not only in the lives of individuals but also in the church, shaping it into the Body of Christ. We cooperate with this work of the Spirit through certain practices that make us more open and responsive to the Spirit’s touch, disciplines such as Sabbath keeping, works of compassion and justice, discernment, worship, hospitality, spiritual friendships, and contemplative silence.

THE SCHOOL OF SPIRITUAL FORMATION
The Spiritual Formation Subcommittee of Adult Christian Nurture is inaugurating a new venue for adult education, The School of Spiritual Formation. Classes offered in the School of Spiritual Formation will be 1.5 hours long, a time frame that will allow for experiential learning and in-depth reflection. They will be offered on Sunday mornings. Participants will covenant to worship together at one of the three worship services and will attend class for 90 minutes during the time the other two services meet.
