Our spiritual formation is much like plumbing: the concepts and "rules" are quite simple but small mistakes and neglect can be disastrous.  Another thing is that spiritual formation always happens  we cannot choose whether or not it will happen, but we can choose to direct it. This is the key: to be intentional.

All the activities at St John's from Bible Studies to simple Pot Lucks are intentional efforts to help us be conformed to Christ and not to the world. We provide a variety of programs and experiences which encourage and teach individuals as they give every aspect of their lives to Jesus Christ. These include:

  • Sunday School
  • Fellowship Events (intergenerational and age-specific)
  • Bible Studies
  • Retreats

We encourage you to find a group in which to connect and grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord.

Listen to Walt's Formation Minute talks below.  Each short message is a starter thought or encouragement in your journey into transformation with Christ. This collection is on Morning Prayer. 

Walt Miller, M.Ed. (wmiller@stjohnsparish.net) is our Community Pastor and Director of Faith Formation. His passion is helping people worship, find the right life group, develop a personal spiritual "life rule", and engage in the "good works prepared for us to walk in". He would love to chat with you over coffee so you please contact him at the church, 559-9560 or at the email link above.

Formation is a long, hard work. God allowed the Hebrews to choose whether to cross the Jordan into the Kingdom or not. They chose "No". How about you?
