Christian Formation

image

We seek to be a church which cultivates deep wisdom and courageous faith. Rooted in the Biblical story and inspired by saints, past and present, our Christian formation program offers ongoing opportunities for in-depth, life-long spiritual growth in the Way of Jesus.

Sundays
The cornerstone of our Christian Formation ministry is our Sunday School program for the whole family that meets every Sunday morning at 9:30am. Our classes are taught by gifted and experienced teachers and offer a variety of subject matter and teaching styles. We invite you to visit around for the class that best meets your needs.

Wednesdays
Our adult education program extends to Wednesday evenings during the school year. On Wednesdays, we gather to eat as a church at our Fellowship Meal, served from 5:00pm to 6:00pm in the Worship Hall. Following the meal we attend various “Journey Courses”, designed to strengthen us for life’s journey. These classes offer qualified instruction in Bible study, theology, family and marriage enrichment, practical life tools and the creative arts. Wednesdays are a good time for the whole family, as our nursery, children, and youth all have exciting programs which run concurrently with our adult classes.

Special Groups and Retreats
Additional adult study and fellowship group opportunities take place outside our Sunday morning and Wednesday night programs. Several Bible studies, prayer breakfasts, and small group gatherings meet weekly. Additionally, we sponsor numerous retreats and special speaker events throughout the year. There are always opportunities to learn and grow in fellowship with one another at Second B.

 

One special retreat that occurs every February is our Adult Retreat in Santa Fe, NM. The 2018 retreat is February 9-11 at the Hilton Santa Fe and features James Forbes, senior minister emeritus of the Riverside Church in New York City.  Learn more about the 2018 Adult Retreat by clicking the Retreat Information link below.  For registration information, click the Registration Form link.
