Adult Christian Formation

“One who is taught the word must share all good things with the one who teaches.”

~ Galatians 6:6

St. David’s is committed to providing Christian Formation for all ages. Adult Formation is a very important part of life at St. David’s and includes Sunday morning, weekday evening, and early morning opportunities for growth through small groups, lectures, and Bible studies. We also have a Center for Spiritual Growth, offering meditation, spiritual direction, and other activities to center oneself in God, individually or in groups.

C.S. Lewis Book Group

Third Thursdays
} 6 p.m.

C.S. Lewis is one of most well-known and prolific Christian writers of the 20th century. He considered himself a hardcore atheist and ended up “the most reluctant convert in all England.” His writings have impacted generations of Christians as they ponder how to make faith understandable to themselves and others. This group will read some of Lewis’ famous works, including Mere Christianity and discuss their application in the modern era.

Mindfulness Meditation is a path to building awareness of ourselves as well as our communities and the world around us. Our sessions are suitable for all levels of experience with meditation practice, and include a short talk followed by a guided meditation and a period of sharing among those present.

Our sessions include teaching and meditations on such subjects as finding focus through Mindfulness of the Breath and the Body, Mindfulness of Emotions, Gratitude, LovingKindness, Self-Compassion and Compassion for others, and Forgiveness. Our virtual sangha is a safe, supportive, and inclusive community – your presence is welcome as often as you choose to show up. We meet Tuesdays & Fridays at 9 a.m. for 30-45 minutes (depending on the time spent in group discussion). Please join us!
