What is Christian Formation at Christ Church? 

Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. At Christ Church, we seek to offer opportunities to learn and grow in the Christian faith for children, young people, and adults. The pace of life today—with its increasing demands on our time and focus—requires us to be open and adaptive in the formation opportunities we offer to the congregation.

Sunday morning remains our central formative experience. On Sunday morning, we learn and grow spiritually through our Episcopal liturgy, and we receive and give the support that Christian community offers.  Together as fellow pilgrims, both young and old, we share our burdens and our joys on this lifelong journey. It is through this process that we can fulfill our baptismal vows and grow into the people God wants us to become. 

Formation opportunities for you at Christ Church:

  • Wednesday Women’s Group- Meets every Wednesday in the Dodd room at 9:30. Topics vary.
