"All of us...seeing the glory of the Lord as though
reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the
same image from one degree of glory into another."
2 Cor. 3:18
Christian Formation is a multi-faceted and life-long process of transformation. Often begun as children with our baptism and earliest experience of prayer, it continues into our adulthood with our confirmation, the deepening of our personal prayer lives, and the discernment of our ministry in the world. Such formation is not limited to the simple acquisition of knowledge, biblical or otherwise, but encompasses all aspects of our faith lives. Corporate worship helps to shape and mold our own life of daily prayer and transformation. Service projects provide us opportunities to see our lives and actions as vehicles for God’s grace.
Christian Education is no less important. Educational opportunities - be they forums, formal classes, or personal study - not only give language to our experiences of the Holy, and opportunities to explore the deep questions that we all possess, they also provide us a place to explore the meaning and implication of our faith, and tools to better share our faith with our children, and our children’s children. Whether your questions are as basic or complex, we hope you will find yourself engaged by the learning opportunities available at Bethesda-by-the-Sea.
Together, these diverse opportunities for faith formation will help to deepen our awareness of God’s grace and presence in the world and within our own lives. It is our profound hope that Bethesda’s Educational programs - for
children, youth, and
adults - will aid you and your children in your journey of faith.
