SPIRITUAL FORMATION


NOOMA Video Series will be held in the Chapel starting this week!

NOOMA is a video series produced by Flannel that "blends everyday events with discussion about God.”

 The name NOOMA comes from a phonetic spelling of the

Greek word pneuma, meaning "wind or spirit". The video series was created featuring Christian teacher Rob Bell.


There will be coffee and pastries in the Brides Room as well.


Agenda:

  • Welcome

  • Announcements

  • Prayer Requests

  • Video (approximately 10 minutes)

  • Discussion

  • Closing prayer



A New Spiritual Formation Group

Are there topics you feel are not appropriate for church? Issues you have questions about that you would like a supportive group to discuss with? We believe the church should be a place where we can be honest and open with one another about life, struggles, doubts, and joys!


This fall, we are creating a new spiritual formation group to do just that. But we need your input regarding the topics and when to hold this meeting! We are considering Sunday evening, Tuesday evening, and Thursday evening as possible times. Topics could include:


  • Faith After Doubt

  • Tough topics such as mental illness, sexuality, or Christian Nationalism and how faith plays a role in our understanding.

  • Other topics you might be interested in!


Please take 30 seconds to fill out this survey and let us know the times and topics that are best for you.
