Adult Formation

soup supper 16 041

While our new normal does not allow gatherings like this, we are together in spirit.

 

Formation in our Faith is a life-long journey. Faith grows and deepens throughout all of our life stages. For adults, Lumen Christi sponsors speakers, retreats, Bible and other studies, book discussions, and more. There is an Adult Faith Committee which plans these events. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Lynn Schelitzche, Director of Faith Formation.

During COVID, the following opportunities are available.

 

Winter Bible Study

Witnesses: Characters in Both the Old and New Testaments

13 select Thursdays, from November 12 through March 4, from 11:00am-12:15pm, via Zoom

We will explore 17 people in the Bible whose lives bear witness to God and what it means to be a disciple. These are real humans with quirks, foibles, and humor, but God works through them and we can identify with their spiritual growth. This study is offered on 13 select Thursdays, from November 12 through March 4, from 11:00am-12:15pm, via Zoom. Enjoy the stories, the presentation, and the guided questions designed to bring you closer in your relationship to God. Register by emailing Lynn Schelitzche, Director of Faith Formation, at lschelitzche@lumenchristicc.org.

Praying Together, Praying Apart: At-Home Prayers for Times of Healing, Illness, and Death
The COVID-19 virus forces us to grapple with a difficult reality. Amid self-isolation and “stay-at-home” orders, an increasing number of people are experiencing sickness and death separated from other people. This resource strives to offer some concrete ways to pray, heal, and grieve together when we are physically apart.  In addition, Anne and Jeffery Rowthorn, authors of God’s Good Earth, wrote a litany for the dying, the departed, and the grieving.
