Spiritual Formation

Spiritual Formation

Here at First Church, we are attentive to the head, heart and spirit of all of God’s creation. We explore the faith framework through which we encounter the world.

Sunday Classes

Adult classes are offered year-round. Some classes are in-depth studies of current topics and a corresponding book; others are special topics of interest. Participation is welcome on any or all Sundays. For the current class topic, please check this week’s calendar.

Youth classes are available for high school as well as middle school youth.

Children’s classes are offered for ages 2 through 5th grade.

Other Opportunities

The labyrinth is an ancient path of prayer. It is not a maze; it has no dead ends. A labyrinth is a simple, two-way path leading from an entrance to a center and back out again. Walking the labyrinth is a metaphor for walking the sacred path in our everyday life.

For centuries, people of all backgrounds have found the labyrinth to be a helpful centering tool. The pattern of the labyrinth invites us to move quietly, thoughtfully, and deliberately to a central point and back. The simple process of moving to the center often prompts a “letting go” and an ability to focus clearly on one’s deepest needs, concerns or potential.

Come walk the labyrinth – discover a way of prayer, a way of being in communion with God.
