SPIRITUAL FORMATION


NOOMA Video Series: Held in the Chapel

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


Faith After Doubt: A New Spiritual Formation Group

New spiritual formation group on Tuesdays from 7pm-8:30pm starting on September 13!


Do you have questions about faith, God, or church? Have you felt at times like the faith you grew up with doesn't quite work for you anymore? This is a perfect group for you! Using Brian McLaren's book "Faith After Doubt" as a guide, we will embark on an 8-week discussion series together led by Jon Parks and Eric Fulcher. 


You do not need to read the book to participate! But if you want to follow along, bring your copy with you!




2022-2023 Spiritual Formation Offerings


In addition to your Sunday school class, we are offering several seasonal groups for spiritual formation and discussion at UBC this year. Our first group, Faith After Doubt, kicks off on September 13, but plan to join us for these others as well!


  • Faith After Doubt - Tuesdays starting on September 13

  • The Kingdom of God, Empire, and Christian Nationalism - 4-week Advent series

  • Prayer in a Busy World - 6-week Lenten series

  • Optional Combined Sunday School (TBD) - 8-weeks in the summer, led by the ministry staff


If you have questions or are interested in any of these groups, send an email to Eric at eric@ubc-br.org, or call the church office at (225) 766-9474.
