Education is a major part of what we do at B-B. Whether we’re teaching children and youth about God, love, or justice, or we’re gathering as a group of adults to discuss a book, we think our faith invites us to be lifelong learners. Interested in volunteering within our faith formation offerings? More on the Serving in the Church page.
The Christian Education Ministry Team seeks to:
Ensure alignment with our ministry’s mission with the church’s.
Bring the congregation’s vision of Faith Formation to life for adults and youth.
Facilitate opportunities for people to learn how to use resources, scriptures, and sermons in order to grow as human beings in their faith and as citizens.
Possess an external focus of how we care for the community which is rooted in inner faith formation.
Our church gravitates toward many learning opportunities, whether through education hours on Sundays, book discussions, Bible studies, or film nights. We love learning and believe that understanding the critical issues of our day deepens our capacity for faith-filled living. Contact our office to learn about our current opportunities for education and formation.
This fall, we will be introducing Adult Faith Formation Discussions on Sunday mornings. More information to come.
Three to four times a year we host a book discussion on a topic of interest. Our current book read is Speak with the Earth and It Will Teach You by Daniel Cooperrider. This book read is hosted by our Green Team – look for discussion dates in later summer.
Past book discussion have included: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, when they call you a terrorist: a black lives matter memoir by Patrisse Kahn-cullors and Asha Bandele, and Blessed are the Organized: Grassroots Democracy in America by Jeffrey Stout.
