As Christians, we are pilgrims on our life journey. We worship, we pray, we work to live our lives as Christ showed us.
The Faith Formation committee strives to offer parishioners opportunities to practice and learn more about our common faith journey. The COVID restrictions of the last few years have limited our in-person events, but when possible we strive to offer programming for major liturgical days and times; we have hosted an all-parish book read; we deliver St. Alban’s@Home bags to every household in advance of Lent and Advent that include intergenerational ways to worship/pray at home during those holy seasons; we have hosted an annual deep dive into a film; and we sponsor occasional speakers. We also strive to find and share online opportunities to learn more about the Episcopal Church, the work of current and former theologians, to explore the Bible, and to find ways to sustain and enhance our personal faith and our obligations to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
An ongoing formation opportunity is the St. Alban’s book club, which meets on the 2nd Monday of the month. We end our discussion of every book with the question, “Where is God/Jesus in this book?” This question asks attendees to consider aspects of books to reflect on the presence of God in what was read as well as connect God’s presence in our own lives. Look for information in the Red Door for scheduling and hosting information. All are welcome.
