Faith Formation

 
 

Where Faith Comes to Life

“At Grace Presbyterian Church we seek to offer more than Christian education.  Christian formation should engage the whole person—intellect, passions, and spirit—in a process and practice of Christian maturity. It seeks to form or shape a meaningful way of being Christian and putting Christian faith into practice in the world.

With all ages we encourage everyone to be both a learner and a practitioner.  - Diane Butler Bass, Process, Not Program: Christian Faith Formation for Vital Congregations.

Rotation Sunday School. The Rotation Model is based upon weekly workshops. Over a period of 4-6 weeks the children engage a single Bible story via a variety of workshops: art, cooking, drama, games, science, storytelling, and/or video.  The children are divided into Younger: Pre-K, K, and 1st Grades and Older: 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grades. 

This year’s theme is On the Road with God. Get ready to log the mileage as we travel to Egypt, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Rome, and more.
