Christian Formation

By its very nature faith seeks constantly and in every way possible to understand God more adequately, and so also to understand itself and the world rightly. Faith seeks understanding. This is true for each individual Christian and the community as a whole. Hence, faithfulness leads the church to engage in numerous practices by which it teaches both the what and the how of faith: what the church most fundamentally believes and understands about God, human life and destiny, and the world; and how persons live in the world sanctified lives of understanding and action in keeping with the ethics of grace.

-Seeking To Be Truly Church Today

Christian Formation is about understanding they why and how of the faith.  We learn what it means to follow Christ and how we do that in the world.  

Christian Formation at First-St. Paul is a chance to learn the basics of the faith and then live them out in the world, serving God and neighbor.
