Faith Formation

Kids’ Faith Formation

We’re making some changes to KIDS’ FAITH FORMATION so we can get to know your children better. Beginning March 1, the first Sunday in Lent, worship will begin at 9:50 with a short segment designed especially for our children. Led by Donna Bristow and Sara Weatherman, we will share a story or start a project, introducing the theme for the service or highlighting the scripture for the day. Adults are welcome to look on. Clare will pick up on what the children are doing as part of her sermon. Children may then stay at the table or join their parents. Young children are welcome to join us for a few minutes before going to the nursery.

As Donna, Sara, and Clare develop this new project, ideas from parents and others are
welcome. Let us know what you think!


“Percolate” (Adult Formation) 8:30 a.m.

This winter and spring we have been reading Barbara Brown Taylor’s book Holy Envy-Finding God in the Faith of Others. Instead of being an academic study of world religions, she takes us through the spiritual practices and rituals of other religions and shows us how much we can learn from others. She also cautions us not to compare the best parts of our own religion with the worst parts of others.

We should wrap up Holy Envy by the end of June and then will start Susan Brooks Thistlewaite’s book Dreaming of Eden-American Religion and Politics in a Wired World. Rev. Thistlewaite will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Rocky Mountain Conference in July 2020.

Percolate meets each Sunday morning at 8:30. All are welcome whether or not you’ve read the book. (During this pandemic you will have to “percolate” your own coffee.)
