SpringHouse Adult Faith Formation–Join Us, It’s Fun!

Everyone is invited to join the adult faith formation happening in the gathering space at 9:30 am. We will be starting a new series called “Gifts of the Dark Wood” in this new year.  Whether you have already worshiped at 8:30 am or are getting ready for 10:30 am service – stop by and hear how God is speaking to us.

Here is what you need to know about this Sunday morning group:

  • No experience is necessary! This is a casual and fun group of adults simply entering into conversation about God in our lives.
  • Come as you can! You do not have to attend every week to be part of the conversation. There are people who come almost every week but we also have people come only as they can. Each week is independent enough that we welcome all whenever they want to join the discussion.
  • We have treats!
  • Those who have been part of the discussions over the summer have found it to be relevant, meaningful, and FUN!

We hope to see lots of you on Sundays!
