Christian Formation Opportunities and Classes

"Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth" -Psalm 86:11

Make an Advent Wreath & Help Assemble Holiday Gift Bags

Members and friends of the congregation will have an opportunity to make Advent wreaths for their homes in the undercroft on Sunday, November 30, the first Sunday of Advent. Along with the usual worktables with candle, ribbons and greens to make wreaths, members and friends will be able to assemble holiday gift bags for the clients served by the Plumb Line ministry. The gifts will contain personal care items that all families need. Donations of family size bottles of shampoo and conditioner, soaps and deodorants, large sizes of toothpaste, toothbrushes, and toilet paper are needed. (Note that travel size items are not suitable for this project.) Please leave your donations in the large collection box found in the narthex.

About Christian Formation

What is traditionally called religious education, or even Sunday School, is known as Christian Formation at the cathedral. This is not just some branding effort to be different or unique. Instead, it reflects an approach to how we believe we may best grow as Christians.

Being a Christian is not only an intellectual pursuit, but also -- and deeply - a matter of the heart and spirit. When we open ourselves up to the concept of formation, a formation directed by the hand of God, we move into our true callings as human persons. The act of formation becomes transformation. And in that, we learn what it truly means to be Christian. Our classes reflect this understanding.

The Christian Formation committee is chaired by Susan West.
