Worship and Spiritual Life

This ministry team seeks to create worship that touches people’s heads and hearts as well as providing opportunities for spiritual development and growth through retreats and workshops. They also work with our two ministers of Spiritual Formation as they provide spiritual direction to individuals and groups. Music, prayer, scripture and silence are all components of our journey to a deeper spiritual being.  Check the calendar for news of upcoming retreats or classes.

You might seek spiritual direction for a variety of reasons
