Adult Faith Formation

At CPC, we view faith formation as a process that informs, forms, and transforms us into disciples of Jesus Christ. Faith formation in the Christian church encourages people of all ages to:

  • Grow in our relationship with God throughout our lives;
  • Live as disciples of Jesus Christ at home, at work, and in the world; 
  • Develop an understanding of the Bible and our faith tradition;
  • Deepen our spiritual life and practices;
  • Engage in service and mission;
  • Relate the Christian faith to life today; and
  • Participate in the life and ministries of the faith community.

Faith Formation at CPC includes a variety of opportunities for learning and growing in faith for all ages. We hope you will enjoy learning with and from others on your faith journey. Please contact Reverend Alan Bancroft through the church office with any questions.

The Pastor's Class

The Minor Prophets

Our pastor, the Rev. Dr. Paul Lang, leads an in-depth class making a survey of the minor prophets of the Bible, with particular attention given to the ways in which these prophetic oracles help us think about our commitment at CPC to the goals of Matthew 25. In January and February we will study Micah, Obadiah, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and Joel.
