At Eliot, Spiritual Formation is for everyone!
Our Eliot Spiritual Formation program is guided by our UCC heritage as a reformed and reforming church. As the Body of Christ, we strive to offer our church family: the Bible, our faith stories, rituals and sacraments, history and traditions, prayer, worship, hymns and psalms, circles, service, mission fun and fellowship. Thus, each will discover their own story within our collective faith stories.
At Eliot, our children and youth are precious to us. We implement a Safe Church Policy and we continually review our procedures as to fulfill our mission in providing "a safe and sacred place in which to discover the meaning of the Christian faith".
Adult opportunities for spiritual formation are Eliot is experienced in several venues, at different times during the week. Read more about them here.
For more information about any of our spiritual formation opportunities, please contact Associate Pastor, Rev. Karla Miller.
--Parker Palmer, To Know as We are Known: Education as a Spiritual Journey
We as a Christian faith community, by God's grace, strive to provide our members with Christian roots and an experience of faith formation and transformation, through which we will know who we are and what we believe.
For our children, we teach them that God loves them. We teach them the Way of Christ - "to love God and neighbor" We teach that God guides us through the power of the Holy Spirit. We teach them God's Word.
For our youth, we strive to provide a safe and sacred space to discover the meaning of their faith and an inclusive sense of Christian fellowship.
For our adults, we will provide an informative and creative Adult Christian Education program that embodies Christian values and biblical exploration and respects the differences in each of our personal Christian faith journeys.
Through our covenant with God and one another, we will maintain an atmosphere of joy and safety, community and creativity -- celebrating the sacredness of God's creation and the love of Christ's church for all. We will be extravagantly welcoming - and the uniqueness of all members will be affirmed and cherished.Back to Top
