October 7 – Family Faith Nights begin!

Every Wednesday 

Community Meal (5:00 – 6:00 pm)

Faith Formation (6:00 – 6:50 pm)

Worship (6:50-7:20 pm)

All are welcome to join our faith community to grow in spiritual vitality, worship creatively and faithfully together, embrace our wonder and build authentic Christian relationships every Wednesday for Family Faith Nights.

We gather for fellowship over a community meal from 5-6 pm. Congregation members rotate turns preparing yummy, home-cooked meals so that we may be fed and nourished for faith formation and worship on Wednesdays. We ask for $5 per person $15 per family to assist our congregation in covering the costs of the food.

We gather for faith formation for all ages from 6-6:50 pm. We study, converse and embrace our wonder together. Adults are invited to join the adult bible study conversation in the Fireside Room. This fall we will be reading and discussing the book “Isaiah Speaks”, led by GA member and retired pastor, Roger Schwartz, with interim senior pastor Lon Larson. Confirmation youth will be growing in their relationships with God and their peers as they study the Old Testament together. High School Youth are invited to hang out in the Fishmarket for theological conversation and fellowship. Children are invited to participate in KINGS in the Treehouse.

We gather for worship from 6:50 -7:20 pm in Luther Hall. Throughout the school year we have a Wednesday night worship rotation of Prayers Around the Cross, Labyrinth Prayer, Campfire Worship and Creative Spaces worship. This coming Wednesday we will conclude our Family Faith Night with Prayers Around the Cross.

All are welcome for our GA Family Faith Nights.
