February 2020 Celebrate Christian Education and Formation Sunday

Posted on

“Being formed as followers of Jesus is a lifelong learning process that empowers each one of us to engage in the holy work that God has given us. Whether it is a Godly Play class, a week-long Vacation Bible School, a Sunday Forum, a Bible study or preparation for a call to ordered ministry we celebrate together the wonderful opportunities
we have to learn and grow.”
–The Rev. Canon David Lovelace

Ways to celebrate with us…
