Adult Faith Formation

Learning and growing in faith is not for children and youth only! Spiritual maturity is a lifelong endeavor. As we grow in understanding of our faith, our relationship with God deepens. We are more able to experience God’s promises of peace, hope and wholeness. We hear more clearly God’s call for our lives, and we receive God’s guidance for the journey. Scripture reveals levels of meaning, sparks new ideas, and takes on new relevance in our lives. Here are some of the adult faith formation groups available at CUMC: 

Companions in Christ

If you are looking for a way to develop your daily spiritual discipline and longing for a small group where you can share your faith journey, Companions in Christ may be just the group for you. The study is offered weekly at two different times - Thursdays at 12 noon or Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm.

All are welcome.

Christian Meditation

CUMC’s meditation group meets every Tuesday evening from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Meditation is a time to quiet our minds and go beyond words, thoughts and images into the presence of God and the indwelling Spirit. While it is often associated with eastern spiritual practices such as Buddhism, meditation is also deeply rooted in Christian tradition. Whether you have practiced meditation or are exploring for the first time, all are welcome.
