NEW Faithbuilding Group Study Starting January 28th, 7:00 PM at the Pepper Pike Location

Being alive means handling constant change. As people, we are "in process," constantly undergoing physical, mental, and spiritual change. The new year is a great opportunity to stop and take stock of that process and ask the question, "Is the path I'm walking on leading me to a more loving, more God-filled future?" In this group, we'll center fellowship and bread-breaking around the book We Make the Road by Walking: A Year-Long Quest for Spiritual Formation, Reorientation, and Activation by Brian McLaren. 


Meetings will be held the 2nd & 4th Sunday of each month. We will roughly follow the church calendar with readings throughout the Bible in an attempt to center ourselves around that question and work to make the answer to it a resounding "Yes!". We will ask questions, explore the scripture, and seek "aliveness in Christ" together. To learn more or sign up, please contact Alex at alexander.r.hoffman@gmail.com or use the form on this page!
