“Be doers of the word and not merely hearers who deceive themselves.” James 1:22

Adult formation is designed to build a sense of community and connection between members of Ascension.  Adult formation groups, sometimes called small groups, allow for deeper looks into scripture and faith practices. As a result, members of these groups get to know one another more deeply as well. These groups and opportunities help encourage lifelong growth and learning as we pass through the various stages and seasons of our lives together.

ADULT FORMATION | LIVING INTO COMMUNITY
Wednesdays | February 24 - March 17 | 12:00 pm | Zoom 

All are invited to join us for a life-giving discussion of Christine Pohl's book, Living into Community. 
 

"Every church, every organization, has experienced them: betrayal, deception, grumbling, envy, exclusion. They make life together difficult and prevent congregations from developing the skills, virtues, and practices they need to nurture sturdy, life-giving communities.

In Living into Community Christine Pohl explores four specific Christian practices -- gratitude, promise-keeping, truth-telling, and hospitality -- that can counteract those destructive forces and help churches and individuals build and sustain vibrant communities. Drawing on a wealth of personal and professional experience and interacting with the biblical, historical, and moral traditions, Pohl thoughtfully discusses each practice, including its possible complications and deformations, and points to how these essential practices can be better cultivated within communities and families." Excerpt from the book description.  Register HERE to receive Zoom link.
