For all who proclaim the Gospel, and all who seek the Truth.
-The Book of Common Prayer
Christian Formation recognizes that our entire life’s journey is one in which we discover, bit by bit, that we have indeed been created in the image of God and redeemed by the love of God in Christ – that we are, in essence, formed in Christ. All Saints wants to join you and foster that journey of discovery: helping all to discover the glory of the gospel as it is made manifest in our lives. We offer a variety of classes, small groups, and worship experiences that are designed to bring the gospel to you and to bring you to the gospel.
